Fields of knowledge: Ökonomie

The ability to analyse the economy as a whole, which is characterised by an interest in knowledge, but which does not exclude other theoretical and methodological approaches. The decisive factor is whether and how a scientific approach continues in the search for action-relevant knowledge. The scientific statements are theoretically sound and, where methodologically and empirically possible, evidence-based. Modern methods of empirical economic and social research as well as in-depth analyses of the institutional and politico-economic conditions of economic developments are part of the tools.

Value-based economic reason is well-understood regulatory policy.
