19.30 Live Talk: Prof. Dr. Koen Schoors (Ghent University)
Koen Schoors talks about his book ‘De Perfecte Storm’ (Koen Schoors, Gert Peersman, Borgerhoff & Lamberigts, 2012)
‘De perfecte storm’ (‘The perfect storm’), explores the recent tempestuous events that shook our economic system to the core. Banks going bankrupt, the eurocrisis and the costs of an ageing society: these crises put together can lead to a ‘Perfect Storm’. How did it come to all this? Who is to blame? Is our welfare state threatened ? Koen Schoors tries to answer these questions and contemplates possible new economical structures for Belgium and Europe.
