The German Council of Economic Experts recently presented its annual report to the federal government. In this report, the council emphasises that despite the fact that Germany is currently experiencing one of its longest periods of economic upswing, it is also facing major challenges due to the uncertain future of the global economic order and the demographic change.
Under the heading “Setting the Right Course for Economic Policy”, Professor Isabel Schnabel will shed further light on the council’s key policy recommendations to counter these challenges. In her talk, the economist will give an outline of the foreseeable future development of the macroeconomic situation in Germany and present policy recommendations. In the report the council recommends, for instance, to introduce tax reductions for companies, to improve infrastructural conditions for digitalisation and to refrain from an industrial policy of intervention. Furthermore, the council calls on the European Central Bank (ECB) bring monetary policy back to normal. The lecture will be followed by a Q&A session where audience members have the opportunity to ask Professor Schnabel questions.
