Crash Course Economics
Crisis, central banks and democratic control: the building blocks for change
Jun 15, 2020 Season 1 Episode 1
Jens van t Klooster

Sara Murawski en Rodrigo Fernandez speak with Jens van’t Klooster about crisis, central banks and democratic control.

What are the historical origins of central bank independence? Why are central banks not fully embedded in a democratic decision-making structure? How can we regain democratic control?

Casting the net wide: what would progressive monetary policies look like? What are the necessary ingredients?

Jens van 't Klooster is a Research Foundation — Flanders postdoctoral researcher at KU Leuven and member of the research group ‘A New Normative Framework for Financial Debt’ at the University of Amsterdam. Jens' research fits somewhere between normative political philosophy and political economy.
