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.

What Happened at Bretton Woods?
Thursday, November 1st, 2018
At the end of the Second World War, the United States assumed the helm of global leadership at the international monetary
conference at Bretton Woods in the New Hampshire in 1944. The purpose of this conference was to determine the principles of the

Why Debt-Driven Booms Are Unsustainable
Friday, October 19th, 2018
Modern central banking claims to make the money supply more elastic to stabilize the economy. The rationale says that left to itself,

and bust.

The Next Financial Crises
Monday, October 15th, 2018
The next financial crisis is just around the corner. It is only a matter of time until once again the world economy will be shocked by a
massive contraction of liquidity. All markets are linked, and the origin of a new crisis can come from anywhere. A global financial
crisis is the result of an interplay between domestic and external factors. The drama has many players and none of them is
innocent.

Economic Nationalism Is a Terrible Response to the Currency War
Wednesday, October 3rd, 2018
The way out of the dilemma and to resolve the problem that is posed by the existence of national currencies under state authority, is
to use private money at a global scale. Gold once served this purpose and could again. Further, the new electronic monies, like
Bitcoin for example, are not bound to a specific state or nation.

Max Stirner’s Enduring Relevance
Friday, September 7th, 2018
Collectivism left horrifying stains on the 20th century. With the new technologies of supervision and control now available, the
dominance of collectivist beliefs in the new century would be outright devastating. It is time to ban the curse of collectivism. We need
an individualist turn in philosophy and politics and must abandon the mystical beliefs in false abstractions. To this end, Max Stirner
is the indispensable guide.

When Will the Debt Trap Snap?
Thursday, August 30th, 2018
A new recession would not only mean lower or even negative economic growth rates, it would also induce governments to increase
public spending. Then, the public debt quotient (debt over gross domestic product) would rise because of a lower denominator and
a higher numerator. With the interest rate at historical lows, and the debt ratios already at the point of fiscal unsustainability, there is
no space for a new stimulus.

The Turkish Currency Crisis and What It Can Teach Us
Thursday, August 23rd, 2018
Since 2010, the balance sheet of the Turkish central bank has more than tripled. This expansion came as the result of putting an
end to the independence of the Turkish central bank by Turkey’s president Recep Tayyip Erdogan. He was democratically elected in
2014 and re-elected in 2018. Over the years since he took power, he has become increasingly authoritarian to the dismay of his
Western allies, including the United States.

Welfare: More Costs Than Benefits
Friday, July 27th, 2018
Many people regard the welfare state as a great achievement. Yet few recognize that the larger the welfare state becomes, the more
the beneficiaries themselves must bear the costs. The beneficiaries must pay for what they receive, and they also bear the
administrative expenses and must pay for the rent-seeking of special interest groups that exploit the system for their own benefit.
