ORDO - Jahrbuch für die Ordnung von Wirtschaft und Gesellschaft ("OPDO - Yearbook for streamlining the economy and society") is an annual scientific publication that publishes peer-reviewed articles in the field of economic and social sciences.
The first edition of ORDO was released in 1948 by economists Walter Oyken and Franz Böhm. The journal was the main topic of scientific discussion at the Freiburg School. The yearbook served as a support for the creation of the concept of “ ordoliberalism ” ( German: Ordoliberalismus ).
Today, questions of the economy and social structure of ORDO are examined from an intersectoral and social science perspective, with economic and legal articles prevailing in comparison with political, scientific, sociological and philosophical ones. The magazine contains articles by Nobel Prize winners in economics. Including articles by Nobel laureates James Buchanan , Friedrich von Hayek , Milton Friedman and George Stigler , as well as the philosopher Karl Popper . In addition, the ORDO developed the theoretical foundations of the German economic system, the social market economy ( German: Soziale Marktwirtschaft ).
