The Danish Economic Society and Copenhagen Economics are happy to co-host an after work meeting discussing equality and growth Thursday 5 November.
Following the economic crisis, persistent high unemployment and low growth, in conjunction with indications of increased income inequality in a number of OECD countries, has triggered a discussion on various possible links between growth and equality: Where do we have trade-offs and when will more equality boost growth?
We have invited Christian Kastrop, Director of Policy Studies at the Economics Department of the OECD, and Lars Haagen Pedersen, deputy permanent secretary at the Ministry of Finance, to present and discuss their perspectives.
Prior to the after work meeting, Copenhagen Economics will host a closed seminar for key european stakeholders on the same topic.
Participation is free of charge but requires registration to firstname.lastname@example.org no later than 2 November.
