Thirty years ago, the Berlin Wall, deadly symbol of the Cold War, collapsed in a series of events no one had predicted. Economics Associate Professor and game theorist Christian Roessler, who grew up in the immediate vicinity of the Wall, on a street divided into East and West, Communism and Capitalism, speaks about life in an all-knowing totalitarian state, the interdependent personal choices that allowed the Wall to stand and then suddenly caused it to fall, bringing a seemingly invincible system down with it.
This event is open to the public.
