War, inflation, recession and increasing inequality. We need progressive fiscal policy that can respond to the major challenges of our time. Arena Idé would like to involve you in the discussion on what should shape the economic policies of tomorrow. With some of the world’s leading progressive economists and intellectuals, we are turning the page to the new chapter that the current cost-of living-crisis might lead to.

The conference highlights tomorrow’s fiscal policy and macroeconomic trends, the democratic deficit of monetary policy, investments for the climate transition and how to best fight inflation.

The conference is organised in co-operation with the macrofinance institute Dezernat Zukunft.

Where: Södra Teatern, Stockholm
