Health and economy in times of the corona crisis
The corona pandemic is a deep cut for economy and society. It is primarily a threat to health. However, its global economic impact is serious and will in all likelihood surpass the effects of the economic and financial crisis of 2008/09. The corona crisis is far from over, will continue to accompany us for some time to come and raises many important questions. The issues range from the long-term effects of the pandemic on the economy and society, the welfare state and climate change, crisis management in Europe, the right economic policy measures in different phases of the crisis, to the reconciliation of health and economic policy concerns.
The lecture is open to the public. Conditions for pre-booking, registration and seat reservation will follow, if necessary under the conditions of Corona.
