Acatis – Webinar – Value Conference 2020

5 June 2020 - 10:00 - 18:30

Webinar – Value Conference 2020

Under the title “Long live capitalism”, we will look at the tremendous achievements that have been made possible by market-driven solutions. Often, public discussions are focused solely on the distribution of wealth, with an emphasis on justice and need. What is neglected, however, is capitalism as source of wealth. It is underestimate how effective the market is in solving problems.

Dr. Hendrik Leber will provide a brief update on the newest developments at ACATIS and introduce the theme of the conference. Then, Dr. Dr. Rainer Zitelmann will explain why capitalism is the solution and not the problem. Wealth increases where governments lose influence and people have confidence in the market. One example is the emergence of China, as will be illustrated by Prof. Dr. Ingo Beyer von Morgenstern. Dr. Lutz Krafft will then discuss how market forces drive innovation in agriculture, and which technologies will become major players in the near future.

Market economies and capitalism cannot function entirely without rules. Therefore Prof. Dr. Justus Haucap will look at competition law and digital monopolies. Joining us live from the US, Jeremy Grantham will provide an overview of climate change and investment opportunities. Luckily, it does not cost the world to save the earth, according to the presentation by Prof. Dr. Andreas Löschel, the lead author of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change for the 5th and 6th Assessment Report. Daniel Ineichen will explain that even catastrophes have a market price, using the example of disaster bonds.

Since our conference is not a sales event and is not subject to any space restrictions this year, we invite you to pass on the registration link.

Registration for the conference is only possible online until June 1st, 2020.
