Covid-19 and the Mess It Creates for the Global Economy
A video discussion with Dr. John Lipsky, Distinguished Scholar at Johns Hopkins School for Advanced International Studies and former First Managing Director of the IMF; Professor Dr. Andreas Dombret, Global Senior Advisor at Oliver Wyman and former Board Member of Deutsche Bundesbank; and Sigmar Gabriel, fomer Vice-Chancellor and Federal Minister. The discussion is moderated by Steve Sokol, American Council on Germany. The panel discusses how stark the recession because of the pandemic will be, what kind of measures are currently taken to manage the crisis, and how these compare to the reactions to the financial crisis of 2008.
Since the German-American Conference of Atlantik-Bruecke and the American Council on Germany cannot take place in its usual format in 2020 due to the current situation, both institutions will jointly host a series of video conference calls within the next weeks. This video is part of the virtual German-American conference 2020.
