In close cooperation with the staff of the German Economic Institute, the management team develops scientific publications and content on various, exciting topics. With an interdisciplinary approach, researchers draw on both theoretical models and applied empirics. Historical evidence is put to the test with modern econometric analysis tools in order to derive concrete options for action for current economic policy. In terms of content, the papers span a broad spectrum from current structural change to regulatory policy, past economic crises, and the regulation of capital markets.
