Who pays the bill?

On public finances and intergenerational justice

When the Federal Constitutional Court ruled at the end of 2023 that unused money from the special coronavirus fund could not be transferred to the Climate and Transformation Fund, the German government was missing billions of euros (e.g. for climate protection projects). There was a lively debate about how to compensate for the funds: Where could savings be made? Should taxes be increased? How should we proceed with the debt brake?
This debate was intermingled with a question that reaches far into the future: should major projects and investments be financed by new, even massive debt? This would particularly affect future generations, who would benefit from long-term investments, but would also take on a larger financial mortgage.
The economist Nils Goldschmidt and the philosopher Christian Neuhäuser will speak and discuss.

Special note:

Online participation in the event is possible via livestream on the YouTube channel of the Catholic Academy in Bavaria:
