We are sorry to announce that this homepage was affected by an automized attack that caused ‘Economics of Poetry’ to be unreachable for several weeks since late September. We apologize for any inconvenience. The attack exploited a security gap in the blogging platform used on this homepage. After protracted negotations with our provider we have now been able to relaunch ‘Economics of Poetry’ in its original form. Our acknowledgments go out to Markus Neuschäfer, who was a great help in undoing the damage.
