Our studies, projects and recommendations for action show perspectives for our economy and our society. Here you will find a thematic overview.
Behavioral Economics and Business Ethics
Entrepreneurial profit-seeking and the legitimate interests of society are not always in harmony. Business ethics can solve this dilemma. Behavioral economics has further developed the view of human beings from classical economics.
Companies and Markets
Companies are an important pillar of our economy because they create jobs, prosperity and growth. It is the task of politics to support companies in adapting to a changing environment - for example, to promote research and development.
Digitization is penetrating all areas of life and networking people, machines and processes. This is creating immense opportunities for the German economy.
Distribution and Public Finances
The government budgets of the federal government, the states, local authorities and social security funds have a volume of just under half of Germany's GDP. The corona crisis is forcing new spending, but how can an explosion of public debt be prevented?
Education and Training
From an economic point of view, it is beneficial if policymakers invest in the bright minds of tomorrow and create a competitive, innovative and equitable education system in Germany.
Alongside digitalization, climate change is the megatrend of today. The goal is to shape a sustainable economic policy that is efficient and social.
Growth and Business Cycle
A prospering economy raises the standard of living of the population, creates jobs and fills the state coffers, from which tasks such as education, environmental protection and social security are financed.
Labor and Income
The labor market situation of recent years shows: High employment and low unemployment are possible with the right policies and in a flourishing economy.
Around half of Germany's private assets are invested in real estate. No wonder, because in times of low interest rates, real estate is a safe investment, both privately and commercially.
