Documentation of the Trialogue "The Model of Competitiveness in Germany?"

AUTHORAudrey Podann, Marietta Müller

The trialogue on March 06, 2017 was the first event in the series "German Sonderweg? - An Assessment of the Current Situation of Economic Policy and Economic Sciences in Germany". As the only major economy within the OECD, Germany favors the continuous production of foreign trade surpluses.

The trialogue aimed to uncover the underlying explanatory patterns of these policies and to identify possible contradictions between economic paradigms.

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