With the involvement of esteemed economists, the conference intends to cast light on the inherent shortcomings of the current monetary system and examine how monetary reforms and new forms of money can support a more stable and just economy. Pros and cons of sovereign and private currencies will be presented and it willbe discussed whether the right to create money should be restricted to a public institution or whether money creation should be privatized. In this context, the conference will further assess the potential of new emerging digital money, namely Central Bank Digital Currencies (CBDC) and cryptocurrencies.
