Steering recovery in Germany and Europe
European Union member states are discussing proposals for a recovery fund, as well as setting out their own path back to normality. On 1 July, Germany takes on the European Council presidency.
Jakob von Weizsäcker, chief economist at Germany’s federal ministry of finance, outlines the country’s response to Covid-19 and how this is linked with other member states and the EU. He discusses the virus’ impact on Europe, the recovery fund and whether the temporary measure will be a ‘Hamiltonian moment’.

This meeting will be conducted under the OMFIF Rules.
