Intellectual influencesEdit

His work combines interpretations of Hegelian, Marxian, and Schumpeterean ideas and aims at the construction of (partially game-theoretic) simulations for contemporary issues in global political economy to inform policy making. His work on the European unification process is paralleled by a strong interest in methodological questions. His most recent research interest concerns the development of quantum political economy.[7] He is married to professor Edeltraud Hanappi-Egger, has three children and lives in Vienna.
