PodcastAfter the Constitutional Court ruling, do we still need the debt brake?

After the Constitutional Court ruling, three questions in particular are being hotly debated: 1. Do we still need the debt brake? 2. How should we evaluate the idea of ​​suspending the debt brake again in 2023 and possibly even 2024? 3. What is true about the accusation that the debt brake is a “brake on the future”?

We spoke to three outstanding experts, economics professors Thiess Büttner, Friedrich Heinemann and Volker Wieland.
