[Nederlands volgt Engels] When we take out a loan, we pay interest, while our savings generate interest. At least, this used to be the norm. Earlier this year however, Dutch banks announced that the interest rates on savings accounts will fall below zero in order to boost the economy. Why did this happen, and how does this affect our ideas about economics? Learn from economists Stefan Zeisberger and Ivan Boldyrev about the effects of negative interest rates, and whether this measure can save our economy, even when the corona pandemic takes its toll. This program is in English. Als je geld leent betaal je rente en als je spaart ontvang je rente. Dat is altijd al zo geweest. Toch is dit niet langer vanzelfsprekend. Om de economie weer op gang te helpen kondigden verschillende Nederlandse banken begin dit jaar aan dat ze de spaarrente gaan verlagen tot beneden het nulpunt. Waarom wordt rente negatief gemaakt? En is negatieve rente te bevatten met ons gezond verstand? Bekijk onze livestream met economen Stefan Zeisberger en Ivan Boldyrev en kom er achter of negatieve rente onze economie, ook in tijden van corona, nog kan redden.
