While it only seems to be just one more SECUnd until summer arrives, the end terms however still stand in the way.
Don’t worry, this Tuesday from 9 am, we will sell the following summaries: - Macroeconomics - Economics of the Public Sector - Environmental Economics* - Management Accounting - Geography in a fast changing Economy
On Wednesday June 26th our professor in Advanced Macroeconomics Jasper Lukkezen will be organising a panel on the possibilities of a Central Bank Digital Currency. A panel team consisting of multiple experts active in the financial field - at institutions such as the Dutch National Bank, the Dutch governmental council for scientific research, the Rabobank and multiple universities - will discuss whether it is a good idea to introduce a digital equivalent of paper money. This digital equivalent, the Central Bank Digital Currency (CBDC), would be issued by the Central Bank - and hence is a liability for the Central Bank, just like cash. Introducing CBDC would open up possibilities of providing savings accounts directly at the Central Bank. This would transform the role the Central Bank has in the economy and could have a massive impact on both day to day uses of money and financial safety. The introduction of CBDC is possible - it is legally and technically feasible - but should we? This question and more will be discussed at June 26th at the Rabobank, Croeselaan 18 in Utrecht. The panel will start at 15.00 and will be followed up at 17.30 by informal drinks, free 'bitterballen' and a great opportunity for networking. Interested? The event is free of charge but registration is required before June 20th.
