The Leibniz Research Alliance on Energy Transitions regularly hosts doctoral colloquiums on specific topics relevant to energy transitions with one or more of its member institutes. The colloquium provides an opportunity for doctoral researchers to present their research questions, goals, designs and methods (and possibly also results), and discuss them with an interdisciplinary audience at an early point in their career.

Berlin Lunchtime Meeting China's economic policy future: state capitalism or strengthened market economy?

The DIW Berlin and the OECD Berlin Centre cordially invite you to the Berlin Lunchtime Meeting.

In China the strengthening of market mechanisms hoped for by western businesses is making only slow progress. Instead the state and the Communist Party are expanding their influence in the economy. This has consequences for China's economic policy. In the past decades this has led to growing overcapacities and indebtedness. Now China is aiming at global technological leadership. Is this approach a threat to the liberal order of the global economy?

Dr. Max J. Zenglein, Senior Economist at MERICS, is working on sector-specific and macro-economic aspects of economic development in China, German-Chinese economic relations as well as the labour market and employment in China. Before joining MERICS Dr. Zenglein worked as an analyst at the German Chamber of Commerce (AHK) Greater China in Shenzhen, and later in Beijing. He finalised his university studies at the University of New York at Buffalo, the University of Economics and Law in Berlin, the University of Hong Kong and the University of Kassel with a doctorate in political economy focusing on China.

Margit Molnar, Ph.D., is Senior Economist at the OECD’s Economics Department. She heads the China Desk of the Country Studies division in the Economics Department.

Prof. Marcel Fratzscher, Ph.D., is President of the German Institute for Economic Research (DIW Berlin), Professor of Macroeconomics and Finance at the Humboldt University Berlin, and Member of the Advisory Council of the Federal Ministry of Economics.

The event language will be English.

Wednesday, April 25, 2018 | 12:00 p.m. to 14:15 p.m.
starting with a lunch snack at 12:00 p.m.

The lecture starts at 13:00 p.m.

We look forward to your participation, and request that you register at

    Event 2nd DIW Lecture on Money and Finance on SBBS – De-risking Europe’s Financial Markets

    Europe’s sovereign debt crisis has proven particularly pernicious. A key reason for that was the strong link between banks and states. Banks’ fate was inextricably mingled with their respective sovereign, what was alluded to as the doom-loop. From a euro area perspective, banks were under-diversified, exposed to too much concentration risk. One interesting answer to this issue could be the creation of a – synthetic – European, i.e. non-national, safe asset – without risk-sharing. Sovereign bond backed securities (SBBS), designed to provide diversification and thus de-risking benefits, could perform a stabilizing role. In the fall of 2016, under the chairmanship of Philip R. Lane, Governor of the Central Bank of Ireland, the European Systemic Risk Board launched a comprehensive study to assess the feasibility as well as cost and benefits of such an approach.

    Regulatory Challenges in Digital Markets: Trust Online

    The tremendous growth of digital transactions has profoundly affected the way we interact, opening vast opportunities to improve our lives. Consumers have benefited from an unprecedented proliferation of new services and products. At the same time, consumers often must process large amounts of imperfect information regarding the products they purchase, services they use, and general online interactions. Even more, for many services consumers need to share highly personal information. Being able to both rely on third party information as well as safely share personal data not only requires a well-designed legal framework and active enforcement. Consumers must trust (potentially dominant) platforms, providers of goods and services, as well as the individuals they interact with online. Review and recommendation systems can fill large parts of this need in many commercial transaction contexts. Privacy and data protection regulations intend to strengthen consumers' trust in using digital technologies for an ever-growing set of daily tasks. Will the new European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) deliver this? How can online marketplaces be designed to allow both firms and consumers to benefit maximally? What is the role of consumer trust for the success of the ambitious project to implement the European Digital Single Market? This conference aims to tackle these questions, the interplay between consumer information and trust online, as well as the regulatory challenges in harnessing the power of digital technologies to its fullest extent by facilitating consumer trust and participation online.

    Online registration is now open at this link. Updated information about the event will be available at the BCCP Conference website.
