However, you do not need to be connected to a university or to have studied political economy or economics previously to enrol in this particular subject."

Die planetarische Gesellschaft befindet sich in einer tiefen Krise. Längerfristig ist das Überleben der Menschheit bedroht.

Welche Theorien dabei im Vordergrund stehen, hat konkrete Folgen: Theorien, die in der Öffentlichkeit und in der Politik dominant sind, haben direkten Einfluss auf das Wirtschaftssystem selbst. Denn sie bestimmen mit, was als legitim und selbstverständlich gilt, welche Handlungsspielräume wirtschaftlich und politisch Mächtigen eingeräumt werden, welche Maßnahmen von der Politik ergriffen und welche Optionen abgelehnt werden.

The gender pay gap is a pressing issue that affects individuals and society as a whole, so it is important for economics students to understand it. Despite recent progress, women still earn less than men for the same jobs, leading to economic inequalities and reduced efficiency (see, for example, the recent report released by Moody’s). Understanding the causes and consequences of the gender pay gap is critical in developing policies that promote fairness and equality.

Though apparently siblings from the same family, New Keynesianism and Post-Keynesianism are completely different schools of economic thought. As to why and in what regard exactly, that is what this book is all about. While the former is the official label of the current mainstream in economic research and teaching (rather than neoclassic economics, which would be more apt a term), the latter tries to preserve the original thinking of John Maynard Keynes, but also additional ideas and concepts of all those building on his work.
