Gallen, where Hans Christoph Binswanger worked until his death in January , invites submissions for the Hans-Christoph-Binswanger-Prize, which will be awarded for the first time in This prize commemorates Hans Christoph Binswanger , one of the most important unorthodox economists of the 20th century in German-speaking countries. He investigated the relationship between economics and ecology and highlighted the role of money in the economic process.

The economy is forced to grow not because people constantly want to consume more but because firms in the aggregate can only realize profits if GDP increases over time. The latter book has become a classic and has inspired a number of other works.
