14: Prosperity for All? Austria’s Top Managers in Dialogue with Ludwig Erhard

-
Hauptschule
Breakout / Working Group
german language

Supported by REWE Group
In 1957 Ludwig Wilhelm Erhard (1897-1977) published “Prosperity for All”, proclaiming free enterprise as a prerequisite for achieving “Prosperity for All”. Whether in finance or the real economy, Erhard’s positions seem to be as relevant today as they were in 1957. Together with three of the most important Austrian top managers from finance and the real economy we will discuss experiences and values, the long-term validity of economic principles, and the supposed difference between the real economy and finance based on quotes by Ludwig Erhard.
