Climate change, coronavirus pandemic, the war against Ukraine – overcoming the multiple crises in Germany, Europe and the world is associated with massive investment and expenditure requirements. At the same time, we must reduce social inequalities and spur on transformation. On top of it all sits our deep dependency on imports of fossil fuels, intermediate products and raw materials, which puts European industry in jeopardy. The question increasingly arises about the future viability of the German and EU economic model.

An economic turning point is looming, which requires wise economic and financial policy design to weather the storm.

In 2023, on the Day of progressive economy, by the Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung, in cooperation with IMK, Fiscal Future and DGB, we looked at the following questions:

  • What must progressive economic policy put on the table so as not to lose sight of long-term goals?
  • How do we distribute the burdens and crisis costs without endangering social cohesion?
  • What are we doing to transform our economy for the future and make it socially just?

We discussed all this questions with national and international experts on the 19 and 20 of June, 2023. Together we want to “think economics forward”!
