Die Offene Gesellschaft: What type of economy do we need?

In cooperation with the initiative “Die Offene Gesellschaft” which is organizing open talks since 2015 to animate citizens to participate in politics, the Schauspiel Stuttgart hosts a same-titled series of events. Once per month we are welcoming the audience to join a discussion with experts from culture, science and politics.

On March 12th we discussed with experts in the field of economy the responsibility of the economic policy of the past 30 years and in how far it contributed to the success of Donald Trump and the uprising of populism in general. The key question was: What type of economy and politics do we need to create a flourishing open society?

A discussion about the future with Thomas Fricke (economical columnist for Spiegel Online and chief economist of the European Climate Foundation), Jakob von Weizsäcker (economist and politician) and others.
