Hans-Werner Sinn und 25 Jahre deutsche Wirtschaftspolitik (Hans-Werner Sinn and 25 Years of German Economic Policy)

Published by Gabriel Felbermayr, Meinhard Knoche and Ludger Wößmann

Hanser: Munich, January 2016, 281 pages.

Hans-Werner Sinn has shaped the economic policy debate in Germany like no other academic figure over the past 25 years and has made economic theory accessible to the general public in the process. To mark his retirement as President of the Ifo Institute and Professor at the University of Munich, 111 of Hans-Werner Sinn’s well-known contemporaries in business, politics and the media, who were particularly confronted with his economic policy activities, offer their personal view of the debates on key economic policy issues. The book not only provides a review of Sinn’s public impact but also offers a historical tour d’horizon of the major controversial topics of quarter of a century of German and European economic policy.
