Forum: A New Economic Paradigm

The financial crisis of 2008-09 may have occurred a decade ago, but we are still dealing with the repercussions today, including a global populism wave. The crisis has also led to the demise of economists' unwavering belief in market efficiency that had guided economic policy for decades. Marcel Fratzscher, Moritz Schularick, Ottmar Edenhofer, Simon Tilford and Sebastian Dullien are among the many prominent economists in this Forum arguing that a new paradigm is urgently needed with new policies to address today's pressing issues, such as growing inequality, climate change and rising trade protectionism.
