I just collect stuff here. All of it is considered public but may not be edited well. Stuff is just here so I can access it from somewhere else and if I like send it to people. That’s it.

Hey I’m mathis richtmann. As a visual reporter at Deutsche Welle, I focus on the intersections of finance and society.

I recently published on the political economy of central banking with my co-author Lea Steininger in Cambridge Journal of Economics.

In a team of four we began drafting a comic book on financialization at an art residency at PACT Zollverein in October 2021. The comic is due to be published in 2024.

Previously, I worked at Dezernat Zukunft on financial policy.

I’m a economist by training, with a masters degree in International Political Economy from London School of Economics and Political Science and undergraduate studies in Iran Studies and Economics at Göttingen University.

In Göttingen, I taught Political Economy of Finance: Perceptions 10 Years after the Crash and have been involed in two lecture series. I also teach issues of political economy, global trade, market and power structures of rich and poor countries with Bildung trifft Entwicklung.

In 2016 in a team of five I published YourGreeconomy a 40-minute documeantary on young Greeks’ economic realities: Young German economists raising questions.

This website is built and maintained by myself with jekyll, github, and render. I use the Chirpy Theme.


Hallo, ich bin mathis richtmann. Ich arbeite als Reporter bei der Deutsche Welle und berichte über Wirtschaftsthemen.

Erst kürzlich habe ich zusammen mit Lea Steininger im Cambridge Journal of Economics eine Studie zu Entscheidungsmechanismen in Zentralbanken veröffentlicht.

Vorher habe ich bei Dezernat Zukunft in Berlin gearbeitet.

Ich habe in Göttingen Iranistik und Volkswirtschaftslehre und an der London School of Economics and Political Science einen Master in Internationaler Politischer Ökonomie studiert.

In Göttingen habe ich ein Seminar mit dem Titel Political Economy of Finance: Perceptions 10 Years after the Crash unterrichtet.

2016 stellte ich mit einem fünfköpfigen Team den Dokumentationsfilm YourGreeconomy vor. Darin stellten wir als junge deutsche Ökonomen Fragen an die Wirklichkeit von Krise an junge Griech_innen.
