About me

Hi! My name is Sebastian Berger and I am interested in a wide variety of issues pertaining to the life of economic ideas. My main interest has been in the discourse on social costs and the economics of K. William Kapp. This is part of my wider interest in the sociology of economic knowledge, philosophy of economics, the history of ideas and prosopography. More recently I have embarked on the research project of "Poetic Economics" which explores the relationship between poetry, art, and economics and how it can help to improve economic policy making.

At UWE I teach courses in applied microeconomics, ecological economics, business ethics, and the history of economic thought.

Before joining UWE in 2014 I taught economics at the University of Missouri - Kansas City, Roanoke College, and Dickinson College. I held a visiting scholar position at the Department of Economics at Harvard University in 2013 and at the Sorbonne - Paris in 2006. I received my PhD in economics from the University of Bremen in 2007.   

I am recipient of the 2008 Helen Potter Award of the Association for Social Economics.

I am open to research collaborations, PhD supervision, community reach out, and public speaking engagements in the above stated areas of inquiry. Please feel free to contact me. 

Area of expertise

Institutional Economics, Social Economics, Ecological Economics, Business Ethics, History of Economic Thought, Political Economy
