Welcome to my website. My name is Karl Höhn (pronounced 'hern'). I was also once known briefly as "Karl Hwang" when I took my Korean wife's name. We are now divorced. I created this website on 26 December 2010 as a beacon to attract those interested in finding out some basic and useful information about measuring the power of nations. By providing a link to my discussion group (see below), I had also hoped that it could serve as a forum for like-minded people to exchange information on the quantification of national power. However, a fascination for powermetrics has yet to sweep the globe, so this website, and everything connected with it, remains rather tentative and underused.
My PhD dissertation Geopolitics and the Measurement of National Power (2011/2013) can be downloaded for free at Hamburg State Library:
