Documentation of the trialogue "The model of competitiveness in Germany?"

AUTHORAudrey Podann, Marietta Müller

The trialogue on 6 March 2017 was the first event in the series "German Sonderweg? - An assessment of economic policy and economics in Germany". Germany is the only major economy within the OECD that favours the continuous production of foreign trade surpluses.

The aim of the trialogue was to uncover the underlying explanatory patterns of this policy and to work out possible contradictions between the economic paradigms.

The documentation presents the different perspectives that were mentioned and discussed by the participants in the trialogue.
