Schlagworte:Technik, Politische Ökonomie, Weimarer Republik, Nationalökonomie
The Weimar Republic has been a period in which the German society was subject to strong tensions as the former social order had collapsed. In this situation economists were searching for new concepts for the balance of social forces especially between technology and economy. The optimistic view of technology as a saviour was followed by deception in view of the actual experiences after the world economic crisis resulting in undemocratic visions of organic order built on a strong state.
