About the New Deal Task Force
The Task Force New Deal of Berlin’s DSC (DiEM Spontaneous Collective) contributes to and comments on economic and financial policy positions within DiEM as a whole. In doing so, it aims to build up a common pool of economic knowledge and make it accessible for all DiEM members. Results from our discussions are intended to serve as short lexicon articles explaining key concepts and terms of relevance to DiEM and the economic policy field while also clearly pointing to advantages and drawbacks from a political perspective.
Earlier this year Diem25 has presented its vision for the economic future of Europe, the European New Deal. All over Europe, local collectives have formed to give input for Diem’s first position paper, and a central collective of specialists has assembled these suggestions and formed them into a coherent proposal. The Berlin New Deal group continues to debate specific proposals from the New Deal paper in order to be able to communicate them eventually.
A brief introduction to the New Deal as well as the entire paper is available here https://diem25.org/end/.
Further information and the current state of debate can be found in the channel #p1-newdeal in the communication platform Slack which the Berlin DSC of DiEM25 uses for coordination.
We’re looking forward to discussing with you and to your input into DiEM’s New Deal for Europe!
