Why Debt Is Not The Problem

Solutions For a Post-Covid Economy

Online event

Supporting the struggling economy, creating new jobs, preventing a climate apocalypse – these vital challenges inevitably raise the question: how do we pay for it? US economist Stephanie Kelton claims this to be a misguided question, instead she puts forward the bold ideas of modern monetary theory.

A Professor of Economics and Public Policy at Stony Brook University, Kelton challenges well-established convictions: “Everything that we've been led to believe about deficits and the role of money and government spending in the economy is wrong, especially the fear that deficits will endanger our long-term prosperity.”

As a leading thinker, internationally recognised advocate of modern monetary theory, and former advisor to presidential candidate Bernie Sanders, Stephanie Kelton has sparked debate in economic, financial and political circles across the globe. She was listed as one of the world’s 50 most influential thinkers by Bloomberg in 2019.

On 10 September 2020 at 17.00 (CEST), Stephanie Kelton will be speaking at the Gottlieb Duttweiler Institute. In her live streamed presentation, the bestselling author (“The Deficit Myth”) provides a radically different approach for a post-Covid economy.
