No Crisis, No Progress? Fiscal Policy Disasters as Drivers of Change?
Work

Tuesday, 23 August
Hotel Post - Seminarraum
120 minutes
First come first serve

There is nothing like a crisis (from pandemics to wars) to show what decisions policymakers are ready to take, counting on public awareness of the urgent need for change despite significant budgetary impacts. Disasters build momentum for intense action imposing change on everyone. Can bold fiscal measures achieve the same without a crisis? What are the lessons to learn from 2020–2022?
