Public lectures at the MPIfG in the winter semester 2019/2020

The MPIfG is again holding a number of public lectures by internationally renowned researchers in the 2019/2020 winter semester. On October 9, Jane Gingrich, University of Oxford, will use empirical analysis to show how the role of integrative institutions, such as trade unions, churches, or social clubs, that once linked voters to mainstream parties has changed since the 1990s. On October 23, Robert Skidelsky will describe what the ideal education for economists looks like. Stefanie Walter, Universit├Ąt Z├╝rich, will analyze on November 4 the extent to which the relative cost of different crisis resolution options shaped eurozone crisis politics in both deficit and surplus countries. On November 20, Jeffrey M. Chwieroth, London School of Economics and Political Science, will take a historical and contemporary perspective to look at how the rising prosperity of middle-class households changes the politics of major banking crises. And in her lecture on December 11, Katharina Pistor, Columbia Law School, will consider how wealth is created and how centuries-old techniques are used today to transform stocks, bonds, ideas, and even expectations, into capital. Registration for all lectures is by email to info@mpifg.de.
