    Achim Wambach and Axel Ockenfels talked about christmas presents from an economic perspective

    Christmas is just around the corner and the annual hunt for presents has begun. But what does economics say about the sense and nonsense of gift-giving? Should the tradition of gift-giving be abolished from a rational point of view – or is there a good justification for it? This was the subject of discussion of a Christmas lecture by ZEW President Professor Achim Wambach and Professor Axel Ockenfels, economist at the University of Cologne, at the Centre for European Economic Research (ZEW), Mannheim.

    The panel discussion provided additional perspectives.

    A small stretch of land between the Californian cities of San Francisco and San Jose has been setting the pace for digital transformation around the globe. Often referred to as Silicon Valley, this small area is home to the headquarters of the world’s leading tech firms and start-ups and around a quarter of all venture capital worldwide. The question is, what can Germany learn from the example of Silicon Valley and how can we use this knowledge and the resources we already possess to avoid falling (further) behind in this technological race to the top? Finding new strategies and digital solutions for German businesses was the focus of an event organised jointly by the Centre for European Economic Research (ZEW), Mannheim, and the Baden-Württemberg Ministry for Economic Affairs, Labour and Housing held at the Baden-Württembergische (BW) Bank in Stuttgart.
