Digital Capital Market: Is Europe ready for the E-Euro?
5. May 2021 @ 18:00 - 19:30
The EU Commission's goal is to drive forward the capital markets union through digitalization. Forced by the pandemic-related economic crisis, EU and ECB representatives are increasingly advocating the introduction of a European e-currency. Can the E-Euro safeguard eurozone sovereignty and financial stability? Does it mean the abolition of cash? What about the legal and technological framework? Is the E-Euro even necessary?
These and other questions will be discussed by:
- Univ.-Prof.in Dr.in Tina Ehrke-Rabel - Professor and Head of the Institute for Financial Law at the Karl-Franzens-University Graz, Partner at Rabel & Partner
- Mag. Nikolaus Jilch - Researcher and financial journalist at the Thinktank Agenda Austria
