"St.Gallen is more personal"

After growing up in Lachen/SZ, he studied in St.Gallen and worked and lived in Zurich: after nine years in Switzerland’s biggest city, Martin Meyer moved to Eastern Switzerland this summer – a move that is also supported by the ProOst event.

“Saving in order to invest”

Argentina’s payment default again raises the question as to how much sovereign debt is sustainable. There would be little gain for future generations if they inherited a lower sovereign debt but at the same time a less efficient economy, writes HSG professor Christian Keuschnigg.

The artist Gerhard Richter about his painting "St. Gallen", his difficulties with the art world and some of his own paintings. A video interview on the occasion of his exhibition "Images / Series", which is on display from May 18th to September 7th, 2014 at the Fondation Beyeler. (in German)
