"Die Ursachen der Finanzkrise und die Entwicklung der Weltwirtschaft"

Munich Seminar on 15 December 2008 with Prof. Dr. Dr. h.c. Hans-Werner Sinn

Ifo President Hans-Werner Sinn explains the financial crisis

Last Monday, an overflow audience in the Grosse Aula of the University of Munich attended a Munich Seminar, a joint initiative
of CESifo and the Süddeutsche Zeitung. A presentation by Ifo President Hans-Werner
Sinn attracted nearly 1,000 interested listeners.
Many stood crowded together; others sat
on the stairs or in the aisles. Those who found no room inside listened attentively in the lobby of the Aula. Some students rolled out a banner on the balustrade protesting tuition fees but they too listened carefully. Professor Sinn commented that he appreciated the crowded atmosphere as it reminded him of his own student days in the late 1960s.
