Lehrstuhl für Wirtschaftspolitik GruppenbildResul Zoroğlu


How is the wealth of nations created? And how can this prosperity be secured in the long term in times of multiple crises that do not stop at national borders? 

These are the questions addressed by the team of the Chair of Economic Policy. Innovations and the wise use and the further development of technologies play an important role in this context. However, it is also important how the interactions between the state, the economy and society are organized. This institutional setting can and must also be shaped and evaluated on a regular basis. Innovations and the rules we give ourselves must be consistently developed together to address the global challenges and secure prosperity in the long term. 

We work quantitatively within the framework of theoretical models (dynamic macro theory, game theory). In addition, we apply modern methods of data analysis (natural language processing, time series analysis, synthetic control). 


Based on over 2,000 newspaper articles, Martha Loewe, Christine Quittkat, Michèle Knodt and Ingrid Ott study the impact of the Russian war against Ukraine on the hydrogen discourse in Germany -

A list of all publications at the chair can be found here.
