“…it is the duty of the tenth man to disagree. No matter how improbable it may seem, the tenth man has to start digging on the assumption that the other nine are wrong.”

I am Jonas. I am a Ph.D. student in Economics at the Max Planck Institute for Tax Law and Public Finance and the Munich Graduate School of Economics and hold a Master’s degree in Economics from Stockholm University. Here is where I analyse current topics that interest me in opinion pieces and share my research in economic articles. As a Bavarian who does not drink beer, I have developed a strong personality and learned how to defend unpopular opinions in tough arguments. Professionally, I am most invested in issues of inequality, taxation and financial economics.
