06 Borrowing from the Future – Consequences of the Crisis

-
Hauptschule
Breakout / Working Group
German and English language

In the wake of the crisis, governments are increasing deficit spending levels. Bail-outs of institutions and governments themselves place a significant burden on taxpayers today and tomorrow. How should considerations of intergenerational justice influence our post-crisis fiscal decisions? Should present and future tax-payers be held accountable for institutional debt or should administrative units be held to the same standards of bankruptcy as individuals and companies? This working group will inquire into the consequences of the increasing amount of debt: who pays the bill?
