Fresh-up Economics

How is money created – every day? Why are the interest rates of the European Central Bank currently so low? What are the reasons of financial and economic crises? How can the euro zone problems be explained? Do we need economic growth? What does it mean to organise an economy which runs socially and ecologically? What different schools economic thinking exist?  What about the impact of these various interpretations of economy on the concrete proposals to the economic policy of a state?

weltgewandt e.V. coordinates the innovation project „Fresh-up Economics. Towards Economic Literacy in Europe“ on these and other questions with colleagues in six countries of the European Union. Together they create a learning platform in six languages for economic literacy for adults in Europe.
