Prof. Dr. Franz Böhm (1895-1977) was a German economist and politician. He was one of the main representatives of ordoliberalism, the German version of Social Liberalism. During the Nazi era, he lost his chair for economy at the university Freiburg. As a member of the conservative party, Böhm was elected to the West German parliament in the early 1950s and was also appointed head of the German delegation for the reparations negotiations with Israel.
