Sustainble Money Research Group was founded in 2011. The members pursue the objective to analyze the following questions:
- Is money as neutral as considered in most economics models? Is the structure of the financial system responsible for driving economic growth?
- Does our economic system require economic growth to guarantee its own stability?
- Does this analysis identify political room to maneuver to overcome the growth paradigm, that were yet overlooked?
Most of our articles are published in German, but see the paper Consistency and Stability Analysis of Models of a Monetary Growth Imperative (Ecological Economics 136, pp. 114–25) for an introduction.
