During the coronavirus pandemic, German economic policymakers must not lose sight of two developments: On the one hand, the growth of powerful internet giants through digitalisation, and on the other hand the economic success of China, which rests on the influence of large state-owned corporations. Taking up these developments, Social Sciences Academic Press has now published the book “Digital Prosperity for All” by ZEW President Achim Wambach, PhD and Handelsblatt journalist Hans Christian Müller in Chinese.

ZEW President Achim Wambach presented his book in an online discussion with Chinese experts.
