Financing the social-ecological transformation



Tue April 23, 2024, 7:00 pm


With: Prof. Ulrich Klüh,  Darmstadt University of Applied Sciences

But what role do savings banks and Volksbanks actually play? What can the ECB do? And which tax system can best be used to finance public investments in climate protection? But do these questions really get to the heart of the problem? Prof. Ulrich Klüh will speak about the nexus of money and matter: plurality and materiality of transformation financing.
