The 5th Lindau Meeting on Economic Sciences just ended! I provided an open exchange of economic expertise and inspired cross-cultural and inter-generational encounters among economists from all over the world. From 19 to 23 August, the participating 18 Nobel Laureates and 460 young scientists had plenty of opportunity for an intensive exchange of ideas.
The meeting opened on 20 August with a keynote address by the German Chancellor Angela Merkel, and featured “a panoramic view on the situation and prospects in Latin America” by Mario Vargas Llosa, the 2010 Nobel Laureate in Literature. The scientific programme addressed central fields of the discipline, ranging from econometrics, game theory, and neo-classical growth theory to mechanism design and systemic risk measurement. The overarching question “How useful is economics – how is economics useful?” was the subject of the meeting’s closing panel debate on Mainau Island on Saturday, 23 August.
The scientific programme of the 5th Lindau Meeting on Economic Sciences comprised lectures and panel discussions as well as discussion sessions and master classes.
