Changing World – Changing Ways

-
Elisabeth-Herz-Kremenak-Saal
Plenary / Keynote & Panel
english language

The tides are turning. Our economic models increasingly fail to predict the ever-more complex world around us. Why and how is the economic world different from what – in 2008 – we had anticipated? Where are the new models to explain what is happening? How can our systems stay fit for the future? And what should businesses and states be preparing for?
