Madrid Featured Speakers: An Overview

With Spain's economic crisis constantly in the headlines and just a few days after new economic and employment reforms were passed in the capital, the auditorium was packed for a presentation by Valeriano Gomez, Spain's Minister of Employment. Luciano Coutinho, President of the Brazilian National Development Bank delivered an address on risks and opportunities faced by banks in different economies. Jens Beckert, Director of the Max Planck Institute in Cologne delivered a presentation on markets and imagination. Karen Knorr-Cetina, of the University of Chicago, reflected the history of technology in the financial world, while Maria Angeles Duran of the Spanish Scientific Research Council in Madrid discussed unpaid work in the global economy. Finally, political scientist Charles Sabel, of Columbia University, argued for what he called a modestly optimistic view of the new welfare state.
