94. Kieler Konjunkturgespräche - Business Cycle Forum

The Kieler Konjunkturgespräch (KKG) is the Kiel Institute Forecasting Center’s flagship conference on international business cycle analysis. Here we share our research and discuss global macroeconomic issues with other forecasters, policy makers, and business leaders.

Title of the 2016 fall event is:
Driving Growth or Driving Debt: Fiscal Stimulus back on Stage?

Despite unprecedented monetary stimulus packages in all major currency areas for
more than half a decade now, the economic performance in many parts of the world is
still widely considered as unsatisfactory. This has given fresh impetus to make heavier
use of fiscal tools. However, the limits to fiscal policy – in particular high public debt
levels in many countries – had been the reason that the monetary authorities were
urged to take over in the first place. As the ultra-low interest rate period so far has not
been used for ambitious consolidation efforts, there is a controversial debate on whether
or not more public spending may be a macroeconomic game-changer for the good.
This debate is particularly pronounced in the European Union where the interpretation
of the common fiscal framework is an ongoing matter of dispute. This coincides with
even more fundamental questions regarding the future shape of the EU in the aftermath
of the British referendum that challenges business leaders and policy makers alike.

Top-speakers include

Emmanuel Massé, Assistant Secretary, Directorate-General of the Treasury, Macroeconomic Policies and European Affairs Department, Paris

Ludger Schuknecht, Chief Economist, German Federal Ministry of Finance

The basis for the KKG is provided by presentations by national and international experts
on the economic perspectives for important countries and regions as well as on pressing
issues for economic policy. Also, the Forecasting Center presents its latest forecasts and
analyses on the German economy, the Euro area economy, and the world economy,
and it discusses global macroeconomic topics with other business cycle experts,
policymakers, and business representatives. The conference language is English.
