BEITRAG ZUM PROJEKT

Hartmut Elsenhans ist ein ausgewiesener Experte der Politik des Nahen und Mittleren Ostens, insbesondere Algeriens. Seine Theorie der Staatsklasse, die das politische Verhalten von Entscheidungsträgern in Rentengesellschaften erklärt, gehört zu den Ausgangspunkten dieses Projektverbundes. Mit seinem Ansatz zur Rente bereichert er die Analyse von Extractivism.de und schlägt den Bogen zur Theorieentwicklung in der Globalen Politischen Ökonomie.
