Welcome to my website!
It gives an overview of my professional activities as an economist, statistician and 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  But as can be seen from the selection of published and unpublished material, I especially worked on concepts that explore how society could move towards greater sustainability.

Included is also a comprehensive, still unpublished study entitled Janus Principle – Progress by Looking Back.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

During the last few years, I was especially involved in a project on Goethe in Wiesbaden. The documentation was published in October 2019. Furthermore, I worked on the biography of the former president of the German Statistical Office, Hildegard Bartels. In memory of my best friend, Jürgen Schramke, I also present some biographical notes and several of his papers. This homepage allows me to thank my friends and former colleagues for their manifold support.
