What are the prospects for economic recovery both in Germany and Europe, and in terms of the transatlantic partnership, as the coronavirus crisis continues? Although Europe’s largest economy shrank less than expected due to a strong summer, a second wave of infections in Germany brings new challenges. Head of the German Council of Economic Experts (Wirtschaftsweise) and Uni-Freiburg professor, Dr. Lars P. Feld, will speak about the council’s latest report, and what lies ahead on both sides of the Atlantic.
