  Add to Calendar 2020-04-15 16:00 2020-04-15 17:30 Europe/Paris Max Weber Master Class with Prof. Waltraud Schelkle (London School of Economics): Is the COVID-19 crisis really so different from the financial crisis?

In this seminar, Prof. Schelkle would like to discuss and compare what seem, at first sight, very different crises: the international financial crisis of 2008-9 that morphed into several sovereign debt crises inside the euro area, on the one hand, and the pandemic of COVID-19 now, on the other.

The macroeconomic challenges are idiosyncratic and unprecedented in each one of these crises. Yet, the collective action problems of responding to them look frustratingly familiar: emergency politics drives institution-building, with solidarity at best a by-product of these institutions. This mode of gestation leaves legacies of division and raises the question how the by-product of solidarity can become a purposefully provided public good.

Fabian Mushovel (MW SPS Fellow) will introduce the speaker.

Prof. Dorothee Bohle (MWP Director) will moderate the event.

The Zoom link to the Master Class will be provided following registration.
