Economics is Onesided and Reactionary - by Conrad Schuhler and Rudolf Hickel
The homo oeconomicus cannot be our hope and is not desirable or future friendly. The economic benefits for the capitalist entrepreneur are in contradiction to nature and to the person. We do not need a homo oeconomicus but an economic actor for whom the human factor and not economic advantage is most important in his/her economic actions...

For a Different Economics - by Jacob Hafele and Benedict Weihmayr
Economists are criticized everywhere for their onesidedness, their focus on markets and their inability to deal with the burning problems...

Victory of the Economy over Democracy and the Constitutional State - by Martin Kutscha
The person exists as an end-in-him/herself and not merely as a means... On the other hand, the principle of the worldwide market economy is based on treating persons and their needs as means to the end of profit realization...
