“Stable banks in challenging times” by Andreas Dombret

“What advanced economies need is not more finance, but better finance.” That was Andreas Dombret’s bottom line during his term of eight years in the executive board of the German central bank, spanning between 2010 and 2018. It is just one quote from one of the 47 speeches in this volume.

The book covers his most important speeches on topics like the Basel III reform, Brexit, the digitalisation in the financial sector, and the European capital markets union. In addition there is a long personal interview with the former Bundesbank executive board member, and contributions from colleagues such as Agustin Carstens, Jens Weidmann, Axel Weber and Sabine Lautenschläger.
