Norbert Häring is an economist and business journalist. Since 2002 he has reported on finance and economics for the German business newspaper Handelsblatt.[1]

Life[edit]

He is the author (with Olaf Storbeck) of the book Ökonomie 2.0 which was a bestseller in Germany and won the 2007 GetAbstract International Book Award for best business book.[2] It was published in English as Economics 2.0 and also translated into Chinese, Korean, Italian and Japanese.[3] His book Markt ind Macht was published in English as Economists and the Powerful (with Niall Douglas) by Anthem Press in 2012.[4] In a review for CounterPunch, economist Michael Hudson wrote that the authors "provide a wealth of references tracing how economics was turned into a propaganda exercise for financiers, landlords, monopolists, insiders, fraudsters and other rent-seeking predators."[5]

Häring serves as non-voting chairman for the Shadow ECB Council, a group of 15 economists drawn from banks, academia, and other institutions founded in 2002 to discuss monetary policy and make recommendations to the European Central Bank.[1] He is a co-founder and co-director of the World Economics Association and co-editor of the journal World Economic Review, both of which aim to promote a pluralistic approach to economic research.[6]

In 2014 he was awarded the Keynes Prize for Economic Writing for his contributions to Handelsblatt.[7]
