On Friday, 11 June 2021, Klaas Knot, president of the Dutch Central Bank, will hold his keynote in the annual Witteveen Lecture series entitled 'The case for fiscal stabilisation in a low interest rate environment'.
The Witteveen Lecture, which was first organised by Erasmus School of Economics in 2016, is a scientifically driven reading. It pays tribute to alumnus Johannes Witteveen, one of the great Dutch postwar macroeconomists, both in theory and in practice.
The respected economist Johannes Witteveen was actively contributing to the debate on the macro economic situation until his death on 23 April 2019 at the age of 97.
