In the current global financial crisis, huge amounts of financial capital are destabilizing the world economy because this capital does not meet promising opportunities for entrepreneurial investment. In this talk, visiting scientist Carlo Jaeger discusses research on how a green-growth strategy can tackle this situation more successfully than the present obsession with public debt.

Jaeger is an economist working at the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research. His research focuses on coordination challenges arising from global problems like financial crises and climate change.
