Johann Heinrich von Thünen

Johann Heinrich von Thuenen (1783 - 1850) is one of the most prominent German economists of the 19th century. He was a native of Mecklenburg-Strelitz.

His most important contributions are to the development of the economic analysis at the margin, one of the main techniques used nowadays in the context of modern economic theory. Nevertheless, his aim has never only been pure model construction, but to ensure verifiability of theory.

Thuenen teaches that empirical research always requires theoretical guidance and that theory always needs to be confronted with experience and data. Based on that, he is a pioneer of applied economic theory. Johann Heinrich von Thuenen was honoary doctor at the University of Rostock. The Thuenen-series publishes working papers that use theory-guided empirical work or applied theoretical research in economic contexts.
