Council of Economic Experts presents Annual Report

On November 12, the Council of Economic Experts including Volker Wieland presented its Annual Report, which is entitled "More confidence in market processes".

"Economic policy should be redirected to address the main long-term challenges, in particular those due to demographic change. It should place greater confidence in market processes instead of increasingly seeking to fix market outcomes in order to achieve distributional objectives", the Council said.
