At an event held in conjunction with Allianz SE and the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung, the Market Economy Foundation and Federal Finance Minister Wolfgang Schäuble among others discussed the issues of financial market regulation and tax policy. 500 days after the Lehman Brothers bankruptcy and 100 days into a new federal government, we asked a meritorious panel:

What do tax policy and a better, though not necessarily more extensive, financial market regulation have to offer? Could a budget-neutral simplification of the tax system spur growth? And how could financial markets be organized in the future in order to protect against excesses while avoiding limits to freedom that might put a brake on dynamism and innovation?
