ifo Annual Meeting 2013

26. June 2013, LMU München

The 64th Annual Meeting of the Ifo Institute took place on Wednesday, 26 June 2013, in the Grosse Aula of the Ludwig-Maximilian University of Munich.

The future of European integration depends largely on the extent to which the Monetary Union can be put on solid foundations. To contribute to a more objective public policy debate, the Ifo Annual Meeting illuminated the scope for the development of the Monetary Union from different angles. After an introduction by Professor Hans-Werner Sinn, Professor Dietrich Murswiek, University of Freiburg, and Professor Otmar Issing, University of Frankfurt, delivered keynote speeches on the constitutional and economic issues. This was followed by a panel discussion with the three speakers joined by Professor Brun-Hagen Hennerkes, Foundation for Family Enterprises. The panel was chaired by Dr. Marc Beise, Süddeutsche Zeitung.
