GES Blog: Values to Guide Economies

Blogpost Dennis Snower -  Values


“We need a global value system to solve the problems of our time”, says Dennis Snower, President of the GES and the Kiel Institute. That´s why “Values to Guide Economies” is the motto of the GES 2015. But Time is short, especially since Europe, the United States, Russia, and the major emerging economies are currently not on a path that will lead to greater consensus and cooperation. That makes conflicts more likely.

GES Blog: Values to Guide Economies

What is the GES?

The GES ProcessThe GES is a solution forum attracting world leaders to generate solutions for the most important global problems.

It presents a neutral, creative space in which we can think afresh about tackling global problems across national, cultural, social and religious divides. Hallmarks are that it is research-based and solution-oriented. It is organized every year by the Kiel Institute for the World Economy and its partners and is closely linked to the Institute’s research work.

The GES 2015 takes place from October 12th to 14th in Kiel, Germany!

The GES Selected Solutions 2014/2015 are out now

The GES is not just another discussion forum; it´s a solution forum, focusing on global problems. Our proposed solutions to these problems are designed to be useful, concrete, and implementable.

These are just two of the challenges we addressed in 2014 at the GES in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Over 700 world-leading decision makers and experts attended, including Nobel Laureate Joseph E. Stiglitz. The main proposals generated can be found in our volume, “GES Selected Solutions 2014/2015”.
