From time to time I publish papers and other texts in English, Spanish and French. They are being uploaded on this site.

Is it really acceptable for our economic system to undermine the environmental sustainability of the planet? The same economic system that time and again falls victim to financial collapse and causes ever-increasing inequality? It is very clear that something is seriously wrong – demonstrated not only by the climate, finance, and inequality crises of recent years, but also by the presence of new economic structures in which the rules are dictated by power and money. Clearly, this economic order can no longer be identified as a market economy, the central drivers of which are our needs and preferences. Instead, I call this new economic order the ‚Corporatist Economy‚. A small number of large multinational corporations are gaining more and more control over society.

On this topic I publish a series of consecutive papers together with Heinrich Böll Stiftung and the Green European Foundation.
