History of Economic Thought
The Freiburg tradition developed from a variety of currents in the history of ideas. Their description and critical assessment can offer important insights for contemporary debates. An important focus of research is the formation of the Social Market Economy and its significance for today’s economic and social policy. The Institut also cooperates with renowned scholars in the history of economic thought to continue research on important members of the Freiburg School.
