Day of Progressive Economic Policy 2022

Congress in Berlin | 30-31 May 2022 | #tpw22

We are embarking on the frequently invoked “decade of modernisation,” which will be accompanied by massive investment and expenditure needs. In the wake of the Corona pandemic, however, public debt in Germany and Europe has grown to record levels. The question of war and peace in Europe has also returned in full force. The economic and social consequences will be immense. The European and global economy is facing new uncertainties.

We therefore ask:

  • How do we cope with the pressure to modernise in times of crisis?
  • How do we create a fair distribution of costs and benefits in the transformation?
  • What does a new economic policy that meets the immense challenges look like?
  • How can we secure prosperity and social cohesion?
