28 June: CFS Lecture: Is Crypto a bubble? A historical perspective

Cryptocurrencies have a new technology that algorithmically protects an asset from the temptations of governments to engage in inflationary financial transactions and from the public to profit through counterfeiting. When the public invests in this class of assets, they must decide whether or not they will change the economy and society. Are the public's decisions made on the basis of some observable and understood fundamentals or are they driven by what John Maynard Keynes described as "waves of optimism and pessimism that are unreasonable"? Eugene N. White, renowned professor of economics at Rutgers University, will talk about these and other questions. After the lecture, which will take place from 4.30 to 6 p.m., all participants are cordially invited to a get-together.

The Sustainable Finance Summit Germany, the signature event of the Green and Sustainable Finance Cluster Germany (GSFCG), comes in a new format in its seventh year. Instead of a one-day conference in Frankfurt am Main, this year's summit will take place between 6 and 16 November as part of various events at different locations in Germany. The cooperative summit concept is organised and supported by various initiatives and actors who all have one thing in common: they are working hard to shape and finance economic structural change in order to ensure sustainability and thus future viability.

Frankfurt Finance Summit

Since 2011, an annual event from the “Frankfurt Finance Summit” series has been held in Frankfurt am Main under the conceptual sponsorship of Frankfurt Main Finance e.V. The Summit addresses members and guests of the initiative: CEOs, CFOs, CROs, central bank representatives, supervisors and regulators from more than 20 countries, who are invited to discuss topics that currently move the finance industry.

2020, the Frankfurt Finance Summit took place as a hybrid event for the first time. In addition to the analog experience on site, a digital livestream offered the opportunity to follow the entire conference program in real time. The speakers were projected onto the stage via streaming and thus virtually integrated into the plenary session. Even participants who could not be on site had the opportunity to ask questions in the virtual plenum and to interact with the panelists and other participants.
