A global unwinding?

eabh lunch hour

10 May 2023 at 12:30pm

Frankfurt am Main, Germany

eabh  in cooperation with Allianz Global Investors

The event is in person and will be followed by a networking lunch.


Inflation is here.  Asset prices have dropped. The financial system is under stress. 

What is going on?  Can financial history insight give advice?


Otmar Issing (Honorary President, Center for Financial Studies,  Frankfurt)

in conversation with

Moritz Schularick (President,  Institute for the World Economy, Kiel*)

moderated by

Carmen Hofmann (Secretary General, eabh)

& Stefan Hofrichter (Head of Research, AllianzGI)


Talking about the world economy today means talking about imbalances and inflation. Price levels as much as debt levels are on the rise. Central Banks from Atlanta to Zürich raise interest rates, though will they control inflation anytime soon? Will higher rates trigger yet another financial crisis?

Are there any lessons to be drawn from the past? How to re-balance the world economy and financial markets? Which are the implications of steadily growing imbalances for growth, asset markets, monetary policy and society?

Is there advice for investors?

Join this eabh lunch for a unique opportunity to discuss inflation amongst financial history experts!
