Welcome to the Institute for Comprehensive Analysis of the Economy

Following the aftermath of the global financial crises, in 2009, the Johannes Kepler University established the Institute for Comprehensive Analysis of the Economy (ICAE). The ICAE understands economic developement as a result of complex interaction between a set of various influencing factors therefore strongly emphazing interdisciplinary approaches, conceptual openness, and theoretical diversity.

„Plurality of paradigms in economics and in social sciences in general is not only an obvious fact but also a necessary and desirable phenomenon in a very complex and continually changing subject.“
Kurt W. Rothschild, in "To push and to be pushed, American Economist, 43, 1999, p. 5"
