To start, Pierre Garello gave his paper co-authored by Mina Baliamoune-Lutz on "The Effect of Tax progressivity on the quality of entrepreneurship".
Andreas Hoffmann then offered an explanation why low interest rates have not sparked any credit boom in the EU enlargement countries: "Why Do Low Interest Rates Not Fuel Credit Growth in the New Member States of the EU?"
Last but not least, Philipp Bagus presented his analysis of the 0 interest rate world in his paper "The ZIRP Trap - why low interest rates are a tax on recovery".
