Public Lecture des Departments für Volkswirtschaft

The central role played by populism in the political arena of Western societies raises important questions concerning the interaction of economic and political systems, as well as the sustainability of current liberal democratic structures. What is the nature of the marriage between capitalism and democracy? Can it endure? If so, what changes are needed? These are the questions to be addressed in this lecture, which will discuss the complex history of the relationship between free-market capitalism and democracy, consider how the current stresses between the two have developed and assess whether and how this relationship might be restored to health.

Keynote Speaker:

Martin Wolf, Chief Economics Commentator, The Financial Times

Commented by:

Ewald Nowotny, Governor, National Bank of Austria


Harald Badinger, Vice-Rector for Financial Affairs, WU
