Wes Lied ich sing H - Anmerkungen zur Qualitäts-sicherung in der volkswirtschaftlichen Auftrags-forschung
In contradiction to an article of Bönte and Lucke published recently in this journal, this article argues that insufficient quality of commissioned economic research basically results from distorted quality control incentives both for contractors and clients and not from asymmetric information between them. As a remedy, a mandatory publication of studies commissioned by public institutions is recommended. Such an obligation would not completely eliminate distorted incentives, but its influence on research quality would probably be higher than the influence of a referee procedure as suggested by Bönte and Lucke.
