Money does not rule the world - but politics that deals prudently with common resources is definitely desirable. In July, the cinema and culture magazine Choices takes a thorough look at the question as to where finances and a good life go together - and where they don't - with its topic of the month, "Money or Life". In a large portrait, FiFo is honored here as a Cologne institution and also - what is often overlooked - as a local initiative. Active since 1927, the institute team has also been researching and advising on effective and fair-funded environmental and climate policy since the 1970s. In doing so, FiFo works not only on paper for the public good, but more importantly in substance: "We try to give a stronger voice in public finance policy to all that is intergenerationally just, economically viable, rational and equitable," says Michael Thöne - even if you certainly don't always succeed with that.
