There is already indicators that QE is inflating asset price bubbles and therefore fueling wealth inequality. A rising number of economists and civil society organisations are calling for a new approach to quantitative easing and monetary policy.

These policy alternatives are known as ‘QE for People’ and include financing EU investments or even distributing money to all citizens.

We look forward to your participation in this conversation on how the ECB can stimulate Eurozone economies through a QE for People.

Deadline for registration is February 8th – space is limited. To reserve your space email conference@qe4people.eu with your name, surname, date of birth and ID/Passport number.
