Jan-Erik Thie is a PhD student at the Global Climate Forum in the Green Growth process. He also works as a Doctoral Researcher at the Macroeconomic Policy Institute (IMK). He received his master’s degree at the University of Potsdam in Economics with a specialization in climate change economics. During his studies, he worked at the environmental think tanks adelphi and Ecologic Institute in Berlin. After his master’s degree, Jan-Erik worked as a Junior Researcher at Ecologic Institute on topics such as carbon pricing and the transformation of carbon-intensive industries.
In his dissertation project, he investigates the role of the state in the overall socio-ecological transformation of the economy and analyzes the macroeconomic effects of fiscal policies oriented towards climate neutrality. For that purpose, he develops an empirical macroeconomic model in the tradition of post-Keynesian economics that fully integrates government action while linking the environmental dimension with socioeconomic factors.
