About this page

Kurt W. Rothschild was an Austrian economist who influenced strongly with his work the scientific community, politics and society. At November 15th in 2010 he passed away in the age of 96. Even though a great scientist, college and discussion partner left the field his literature remains as a treasure for us all. With this website we try to provide public access to a comprehensive documentation about his work. In addition numerous interviews, public presentations and documentaries about his life complete the project. At this point we would like to take the opportunity to thank all who made this possible.

We hope that this documentation about Kurt W. Rothschild’s work will have numerous users and that beyond economic research many people stick to his basic principles in life: Openness, tolerance, benignity and kindness. There was merely a person with such a strong connection between work and life, which makes him an ideal for others.
