Dr. Karen Horn

Fields of knowledge: Ökonomie

Karen Horn deals with the history of economic ideas, methodology, order theory and order politics, the history of the social market economy, the origin and future of liberalism, economic ethics as order ethics, as well as the history of civilization and the morality of capitalism. Against the current background, it strives to liberate liberalism from a narrow-mindedness and to anchor it instead as a superordinate attitude.

A deep, comprehensive, fundamental philanthropy is the very essence of liberalism.
