Economic, Financial, and Banking Affairs
Date: Thursday, 22 November 2018 10:30 - 12:30

Venue: European Parliament  |  City: Brussels

European Conservatives & Reformist Group, Ludwig von Mises Institute, Swiss Mises Institute and the Cobden Centre kindly invite you to take part to the conference and presentation of: "Banking and Monetary Policy from the Perspective of Austrian Economics". They will be present to the event the two editors: Annette Godart-van der Kroon and Patrik Vonlanthen, besides Brendan Brown, Max Rangeley and Joachim Starbatty MEP will enlighten the audience with their point of view. The regarding event will be hosted by Amjad Bashir MEP.

In this book other arguments than the usual Keynesian arguments are used to explain the causes of the latest crisis and how to solve it and to propose new techniques.This publication is important, because there is not only a feeling of discontent about the low interest rate policy of the European Central Bank (ECB) but there is a deep divide between countries who have a rather healthy financial system andother countries who want a policy of redistribution. The timing is also important, because when Mario Draghi will end his term by the end of October 2019, the question who is going to be his successor will become urgent. Not only it is important which country is going to provide the new president of ECB, but also what kind of banking policy will prevail. While Draghi’s term as president runs until the end of October 2019, speculation is already building on who might inherit his position. However, the process of determining a successor hasn’t yet begun. The chancellor and her finance minister are set “to push for Bundesbank President Jens Weidmann to become the fourth guardian of the single currency, arguing it’s finally Germany’s turn after the Netherlands, France and Italy”.
