Critical Mathematical Economics

Thanks a lot for your interest in my homepage on Critical Mathematical Economics (CME). It stands for combining advanced tools from modern mathematics with a critical view towards economics, especially towards the "free market ideology", which claims that unregulated markets benefit everyone and achieve a "social optiumum" (see e.g. The Finan­cial Cri­sis and the Sys­temic Fail­ure of Aca­d­e­mic Economics, Dahlem Report 2008).

A different term for such a project could be Mathematics for New Economic Thinking, this is the title of a workshop organized by Matheus Grasselli in 2013 at the Fields Institute in Toronto - he has also given a video-interview How Advanced Mathematics Can Support New Economic Thinking. I currently do my Post-Doc with him in Canada at McMaster University and at the Fields Institute.

For more information on my general research interests and contact details, please have a look at the homepage of my former working group, the Nonlinear Dynamics Group at Free University Berlin. I still use the email address provided there, i.e. buchner at math.fu-berlin.de (replace the "at" by @).

Don't hesitate to contact me in case you have any questions/suggestions concerning the material collected below. I would also be very happy if you have ideas for potential common research projects in the direction of CME, as it is a formidable task to build a coherent and appealing alternative to the mainstream currently dominating economics.
