With their book "Marktwirtschaft: Zu einer neuen Wirklichkeit - 30 Thesen zur Transformation unserer Wirtschaftsordnung" ("Market Economy: Towards a New Reality - 30 Theses on the Transformation of our Economic Order"), Prof. Dr. Carsten Herrmann-Pillath, economist at the Max-Weber-Kolleg of the University of Erfurt, and the Cologne education entrepreneur Dr. Stephan Bannas have now presented a concept of how the global challenges of climate change and increasing inequality could be met by reorienting our economic coexistence.
They focus on the 'real market economy', which they see as an alternative to the ideology of 'capitalism'. In doing so, they place themselves in the tradition of German ordo-liberalism, but extend it by a new economic-ethical and ecological framework.
