He has always been a maverick. In the seventies and eighties Hans Christoph Binswanger taught economics at the Swiss University of St. Gallen and became known as an ecologist and critic of uncontrolled growth.

Without growth there is no capitalism but with growth the risk of finance crashes increases. Capitalism has to be reformed so it will be less aggressive and less vulnerable for crisis.
