In 2008, we had the opportunity to fundamentally rethink our economic system, yet we struggled. Would now, as we experience shifts in geopolitics and a strong decoupling of economic models and power, be the right time? Should business leaders, for example, take the recently awarded Nobel Prizes in Economics for alleviating poverty or tackling climate change as a clear call to address the ever-growing gap in wealth and income distribution or to solve the ongoing climate crisis? And how can technological innovation be used as an engine for change?
Following the general theme of ‘Fundamentals’, top managers, policy makers, thinkers, entrepreneurs and young talents from all over the world will collectively pause for a moment and take a closer look at the foundations of our economic actions. As one of the foremost interdisciplinary business gatherings, the Alpbach Economic Symposium invites everyone to discuss ground-breaking solutions for the transformation of our economic system and society at large. Join us!
More detailed programme information will be published at the end of April. If you have any questions regarding the Economic Symposium, please contact email@example.com.
