Thorsten Polleit on the Negative Interest Rate


Tags Capital and Interest Theory


Thorsten Polleit wrote the “con” side of a debate over whether or not the negative interest rate in Germany is a good thing. Dr. Thorsten’s contribution is in opposition to the “pro” side authored by Ulrich von Suntum (Universität Münster). This all appears (in German) in Wirtschaftswoche (tr: Economy Week) magazine.
