Economy

People’s interest and understanding regarding the economy, both in a national and a global context, is increasing continuously. Topics such as the environment, sustainability and energy are becoming increasingly important for economic thinking. What makes the German economy so strong today? In times of economic crisis and scarce financial resources, this raises the question of whether our system is fit for the future. The economic research institutions listed here combine research on economic trends relevant for economic policy with application-oriented consulting.
