Max Planck Economics Podcast

We are pleased to announce the Max Planck Economics Podcast, a series of in-depth conversations with selected guests of the Max Planck Institute for Tax Law and Public Finance.

In our first episode, we talk to Prof. Dr. Andreas Peichl, who is the Director of the ifo Institute’s Center for Macroeconomics & Surveys and a Professor of Economics at the LMU in Munich.
