How can we rethink our world and who do we want to be? These are the central questions that Maja Göpel asks in her book.

Our speaker Marcel Fratzscher presents with „Geld oder Leben: Wie unser irrationales Verhältnis zum Geld die Gesellschaft spaltet“, a sound analysis and shows why we are mistaken concerning money.
