Welcome to my website!

It gives an overview of my professional activities as an economist, statistician, historian from the 1960s until today. Prominently covered are key projects that emanated from my work at the Federal Statistical Office of the Federal Republic of Germany and the Economics Faculty at the University of Heidelberg. But as can be seen from the selection of published and unpublished material, I continue to feel empirically encouraged to work on concepts that explore how society could move towards greater sustainability.

Included is also a comprehensive, still unpublished study entitled “Janus Principle”. Progress by Looking Back (“Janus Prinzip”. Fortschritt durch Rücksicht). As suggested by the title and subtitle, it explores the interplay between progress and re(tro)spect(ion).

Lastly, this homepage allows me to thank my friends and former colleagues for their manifold support.
