Commons Abundance Network

Wolfgang Hoeschele, PhD

Wolfgang Hoeschele, PhD

The work of the Commons Abundance Network (CAN) is co-ordinated by Wolfgang Hoeschele. http://commonsabundance.net/

Wolfgang, a German who grew up in Thailand, Korea and Greece, now lives in Kirksville, Missouri, where he is a professor of geography at Truman State University ever since he earned a Ph.D. in geography from the Pennsylvania State University in 1998. His dissertation research focused on land degradation in southern India. His more recent work has consisted of a critique of our current economy of scarcity, and conceptualizing an economy of abundance – an economy that does not seek to create profitable scarcities, but rather that seeks to enable all people, and an abundance of animal and plant species, to thrive, now and in the future. This has led to his present involvement in helping to launch the Commons Abundance Network with CAUN.
