Brown Bag Lecture:The end of growth | Jaap van Duijn

Why does the American economy recover faster than the Dutch? Will the real estate market stabilize? And what about the call for radical change, that is heard daily since the outbreak of the financial crisis? Lunch lecture by professor Jaap van Duijn.

Prof. dr. Jaap van Duijn is a former board member of Robeco. In his lecture he formulates the biggest challenges for the financial world. He analyzes the biggest threats in policy and politics. And he poses one of the most urgent questions of this time out loud: what if struggling companies and governments keep failing their financial obligations? How will power be restructured?

Jaap van Duijn is the author of ‘Pile of debt’ (‘De Schuldenberg’). He was a professor of Economy at Delft University, the University of Amsterdam and the Rotterdam School of Management (Erasmus University). Until 2005 he was a member of the board of the Dutch asset management firm Robeco.

More about the Brown Bag Lectures:

A masterclass how to perform a TED lecture, a lecture on the financial crisis or a performance by a philosopher – magician. The Brown Bag Lectures of SG Erasmus serves you every week a new insight or an inspiring guest speaker from September onwards. During lunch time in the Erasmus Pavilion.

The upcoming Brown Bag Lectures are as different as the studies offered by the Erasmus University, but their goal is the same: to look beyond ones field of science and interest.

The lunch lectures are held every week on Tuesday or Wednesday (from 12.30 to 13.30) in the auditorium of the Erasmus Pavilion. Freely accessible (also for non-students) and in English. The kitchen of the Erasmus Pavilion is open for lunch, but bringing your own lunch is also allowed during this program.

The coming months we offer you the following Brown Bag Lectures:

  •  Wed 25 Sept: Tilman Andris (magician and scientist) about trust
  • Wed Oct 2: Victor Vlam on the 7 secrets of a brilliant TED talk
  • Wed Oct 9: Prof. Maarten Frens (brain scientist) on external brain stimulation.
  • Wed 16 Oct: Prof. Jaap van Duijn (former CEO Robeco) about the euro crisis.
