The Spectre of Stagnation? Europe in the World Economy

While the Great Financial Crisis has left its mark almost everywhere in the world economy, its regions have taken different paths in the aftermath. Europe, in particular, still suffers a prolonged slump with mass unemployment and outright deflation posing a threat to political and social stability of the European Union. Is stagnation the new normal for Europe? Why did some parts of the world recover faster after the crisis, while others did not? Are their paths economically, ecologically and socially sustainable or do they only mask a general trend towards stagnation? The conference discussed theoretical and empirical aspects as well as policy options. It also dealt with the implications of these developments for the economics curriculum.

Documentation Summer School

5th International Summer School on "Keynesian Macroeconomics and European Economic Policies"

The summer school aimed at providing an introduction to Post-Keynesian economics and to the problems of European economic policies as well as presenting some ongoing research to interested graduate students (MA and PhD) and junior researchers. 45 students out of more than 150 applicants from around the world had the chance to come to Berlin for an intense week of discussions and knowledge exchange. The days consisted of overview lectures, a panel discussion, student study groups, a computer lab and academic papers. The summer school featured leading international researchers in the area, like Marc Lavoie (Canada), Tom Palley (USA), Eckhard Hein (Germany), Gennaro Zezza (Italy), Steve Fazzari (USA), Engelbert Stockhammer (UK), and Ozlem Onaran (UK).
