Money, Banks, Banker – Outdated?


As part of the lecture series „Umbrüche“ (Upheavals) Prof. Dr. Stephan Paul will address this issue in Blue Square at 6pm on Wednesday, 10th October 2018.

In 2017 the cryptocurrency Bitcoin skyrocketed in value. The media began reporting about the closure of bank branches, in Sweden there were talks of abolishing cash altogether. What effect will these upheavals have on the future of banks? Will we still need them? Will the financial system be safer with digitalization, so that financial crises can be prevented in the future? Or will it contribute to more financial instability?

The lecture is open to the public and is free of charge. It is not necessary to register for it.
