European Forum Alpbach: Economic Symposium (Austria)
30. august. 2016 - 1. september. 2016
THE ECONOMY IN SEARCH OF A NEW ENLIGHTENMENT
Agile, curious and ready to change at a moment’s notice: this is the formula for success in the new economy. Everyone – society, business and individuals – faces the same challenges: digitalisation, cultural shifts and migration pose questions to which our economic policies no longer provide sufficient answers. Economic mechanisms and correlations also lose their importance in the rush to and from the new. Fresh ideas and individual actions point towards a turning point in economic history. Have classical economic models served their time? Which skills will be valuable in the economy of tomorrow? What can Europe learn from Atlantic and Asian economies?
At the Alpbach Economic Symposium, experts, entrepreneurs and academics hunt the signs of tomorrow’s economy. Meet pioneers in the numerous plenary discussions and breakout sessions and join them in breaking new ground.
