Economic Symposium

-

The Alpbach Economic Symposium 2010 analyses the socioeconomic consequences of the financial and economic crisis. Crisis management and the successful shaping of the future will lie at the centre of our discussions.

After looking back on the EU s crisis management in comparison to other global players, we will ask what we have learnt from the crisis. Who bears the costs, and how can we share the burden and restructure our loss-making state budgets and social systems? Will justice still play a role in the economic world? Another plenary session will focus on the ecological challenges we presently face. How can we ensure sustainability and create a win-win situation for economy and ecology without stunting the performance of our market economy?

In the concluding panel, high-ranking political decision-makers will discuss their greatest current challenges before looking at possible solutions in times of high government debt and low economic growth.
