Inhaltliche Beschreibung: 


About the Conference: The conference will be staged as a court trial in which cash will be accused with three charges: First, cash is an essential part of many kinds of criminal activities; second, it is an inefficient and outdated means of payment; and third, it prevents central banks from implementing optimal monetary policy in times when price stability would require negative interest rates. To spur a lively discussion we intend to develop the conference in a defense and prosecution part, where witnesses are called to elaborate on the charges. Additional presentations will provide a neutral overview of the current situation of the use of cash in the Eurosystem and of ideas to develop a digital cash by central banks.


Confirmed speakers: Katrin Assenmacher, ECB; Morten Bech, BIS; Gaspard Koenig, GenerationLibre; David T. Llewellyn, Loughborough University; Heike Mai, Deutsche Bank; Marc Niederkorn, McKinsey & Company; Simon Riondet, Europol; Doris Schneeberger, ECB; Friedrich Schneider, Johannes Kepler University; Cecilia Skingsley, Sveriges Riksbank; Jens Ulbrich, Deutsche Bundesbank and SUERF; Fritz Zurbrügg, Swiss National Bank.
