In our event series #ZEWBookTalk we invite leading economists from Germany and abroad to ZEW Mannheim to present their current book releases. Each event includes a controversial exchange about the core theses of these books, which mainly focus on economic policy issues. With this event series, ZEW offers readers both exclusive access to selected authors as well as a lively exchange on the presented book contents. The book presentations are held either in German or English.
