In conversation: The nature of money – Will currencies go digital and what does this mean for the euro?

Natacha Valla, dean of the School of Management and Innovation at Sciences Po in Paris and former deputy director of monetary policy at the European Central Bank, and Thomas Mayer, founding director of the Flossbach von Storch Research Institute, discuss the concept of money and the way it is changing as a result of the pandemic and shifts in the world economy. The discussion with David Marsh, chairman of OMFIF, draws on themes from Le futur de la monnaie (The future of money), a new book by Valla and Michel Aglietta which will shortly be available in English. They examine prospects for a digital euro, which both experts see as necessary to respond to forthcoming competition from other digital currencies, especially the renminbi.
