Freedom and Progress

The search for a common denominator - In Search of a Common Denominator

The texts address various issues in the field of tension between what is technically or economically feasible and what is humanly beneficial. They are all based on the conviction that only open societies based on private property and competition allow and promote progress. Freedom thus becomes the basis for innovation and change in all areas, be it in the technological field, in economic and social policy or in the organization of the state and administration. The interplay between the public and private sectors, the state, the market and other institutions such as the churches or the informal rules of coexistence is therefore of central importance for safeguarding both freedom and progress.
