About the Author

Josef Hien is Post-Doctoral Fellow at the REScEU project, funded by the European Research Council and hosted at the University of Milan. Christian Joerges is Professor of Law and Society at the Hertie School of Governance in Berlin, and Co-Director of the Centre of European Law and Politics at the University of Bremen.


[T]his is a crucial book if one really wants to understand the evolving debate on the nature, significance and diffusion of Ordoliberalism, beyond and against many, accumulated commonplaces. An even more precious work, if one wants to grasp the shortcomings of the current economic governance of the Eurozone, and what we can expect from a reform of its flawed architecture. -- Fabio Masini, University of Roma Tre * History of Economic Thought and Policy *
