"Living without Interest Rates and Growth - Outlook on a New Era"


There is every indication that economic growth and material wealth will stagnate or even decrease in the early industrialized countries. What will be the effect of this on the monetary economy and credit sector? Will a positive rate of interest then be possible? How will capital formation, investments and innovations be secured under such circumstances? And how do social perspectives alter when economic growth fails to materialise?

These issues and others related to them were discussed at the conference held by Denkwerk Zukunft, Foundation for Cultural Renewal on Saturday, 1 December 2012 in Berlin. Its title is "Living without Interest Rates and Growth - Outlook on a New Era".

Similar to 2011, the conference was linked to a fund-raising concert for the NaturTon Foundation. The Berlin State Orchestra conducted by Enoch zu Guttenberg performed Joseph Haydn's "The Creation", and it took place in the Gedächtniskirche.
