Julika Baumann Montecinos describes moral culture as one significant factor for the economic performance of a society and thus examines a topic that is systematically neglected by classic economic theory. In a cross-cultural manner the author identifies moral-cultural aspects that foster beneficial transactions taking place between economic players. Thus, she draws conclusions concerning cooperation in global economies.
With the concept of moral culture as a form of capital the author contributes not only to the mapping of culture within economics and hence to a more metaphysical, more complete picture of complex economic realities but also creates new perspectives for transcultural management in global value chains of organisations.
We congratulate Julika Montecinos and her two doctoral thesis supervisors Prof Dr Michael Schramm, University of Hohenheim (lead) and Prof Dr Josef Wieland, Leadership Excellence Institute Zeppelin | LEIZ | Zeppelin University (co-supervisor) to this brandnew and successfull publication!
