Workshop on “Ecology of the Financial System”

The third international workshop of the DFG-funded “Politics of Money” network was held at the MPIfG in May 2019 on the role of the financial sector in contemporary capitalism. The meeting was organized by Benjamin Braun (MPIfG) and Kai Koddenbrock (Witten/Herdecke University) and set out to analyze the main financial actors, their business models, and their relationships. Eighteen researchers from six countries presented their current research during the event. In his keynote lecture, “Macroeconomics as Accounting plus History,” the US economist Joshua William Mason (City University of New York) criticized the one-sided focus in economics on abstract models and spoke in favor of macroeconomic approaches that connect history and accounting. conference website
