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.
