The Continental Economics Institute Research Program

The objective of The Continental Economics Institute's research program is to identify those institutional
settings that promote the attainment of the "progressive accumulation of new capital and its utilization for the
improvement of technical methods of production" (Mises) which help to create a humane and prosperous
society.

Capital-Based Macroeconomics
This research project is directed at developing a capital-based business cycle model that integrates
aspects that have been left out in the conventional macro models such as entrepreneurship, time,
roundaboutness, and a micro-foundation with roots in the economics of the firm.

Money and Banking as Promoter and Catalysts of Financial Crises
Based on the Misesian theory of money, this project is directed at analyzing the role of modern central banks
in their linkage to the fractional reserve system of the commercial banking sector.

Transformation of the International Monetary System
This research project examines the challenges to the role of the U.S.-dollar as an international reserve and
transaction currency with the main focal points directed at the U.S.-monetary policy, the euro, and the Asian
and Latin American currency arrangements.
The monetary background of trade deficits and their economic consequences are treated.

Entrepreneurship and Economic Development
This project investigates the role of the entrepreneur as the driving force of economic growth and
development. Different from the neoclassical theory and the
Schumpeterian view, the basic model of this research is the entrepreneur as a
purposeful actor who deals with the uncertainties of roundabout production
ventures. This way, aspects are highlighted which often have been left out in
economic growth and development theories, such as time, external risks, taxation, the market structure, and
government interventions. It is shown that the
entrepreneur is the essential factor for economic growth because it is he who envisions new business
ideas and puts them at test in the markets by which he receives information and incentives in terms of
prices, profit and loss.

Governance
This research project covers various issues ranging from the breakdown
of the modern welfare state to the instability of the international financial system. The common focus is
provided by the thesis that the global crisis of governance is mainly the result of state interventionism with
its inherent expansion and its tendency towards the destruction of spontaneous institutions.

European Monetary Union
The political economy of common currency arrangements in Europe, the role of the European Central Bank
and its monetary policy. Relationship between trade liberalization and financial movements. Critique of the
"optimal currency area" concept. The main thesis of this research project is that the common European
currency is not an economic but a political vehicle. The euro is an instrument in the endeavor of the
Europeans to regain their global dominance.
