The Cost of Destroying the Death Star

Do the laws of mathe­ma­tics apply a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away? And do they reveal Emperor Palpa­tine's secret plan to guarantee that the Rebel Alli­ance could never dethrone him? We will discuss the finan­cial reper­cus­sions of the destruc­tion of two fully armed, opera­tional, moon-­sized battle stations ("Death Stars") within a 4-year period and the disso­lu­tion of the galactic govern­ment in Star Wars. We will consider the costs of buil­ding two Death Stars, the value of the Gross Galactic Product, the scale of the galactic finan­cial sector, and the finan­cial crisis gene­rated by the destruc­tion of the second Death Star. We conclude with the bailout the fledgling New Repu­blic would need to provide in order to prevent a galactic great depres­sion.

Der Vortrag wird in engli­scher Sprache gehalten!
