    PhD project

    Wirtschaftsethisch fundierte Ordnungspolitik : Impulse für eine ethisch wohlverstandene Soziale Marktwirtschaft

    The dissertation project is devoted to a critical discussion of the concept of the German social market system "Soziale Marktwirtschaft". It analyses the ordo-liberal, normative-ethical fundamentals of the concept as an economic- and social order and strives to reanimate its underlying republican-liberal idea.
