About the economic theory group

We conduct research in all areas of economic theory, with a special focus on monetary economics, monetary policy, financial economics and game theory. The work of our doctoral and Master students are an important part of our research. We provide a rigorous teaching of economic theory, but always focus on relevant applications.

About the Bernoulli Center of Economics

in 2006, we have founded the Bernoulli Center for Economics in honour of Daniel Bernoulli. Daniel Bernoulli is the founder of the expected utility theory which is a cornerstone in modern economics. His now famous article "Specimen Theoriae Novae de Mensura Sortis" was published in 1738, 272 years ago. Daniel Bernoulli was a professor at the University of Basel in the 18th century.
