Einige Gedanken zur Wissenschaftlichkeit der empirischen Wirtschaftsforschung


  • Willi Leibfritz


Die Übersetzung des Textes von Mark Perlman "The uses of authority in economics" (Übersetzung im ifo Schnelldienst 25-26/98) hat Willi Leibfritz offensichtlich dazu angeregt, sich einmal etwas intensiver mit der Arbeit der empirischen Wirtschaftforschung auseinanderzusetzen. Er kommt zu dem Schluß, daß die theoretische Fundierung und eine laufende Überprüfung der verwendeten Hypothesen notwendig ist. Ebenso notwendig sei aber auch eine Diskussion darüber, welcher Begriff von Wissenschaftlichkeit künftig bei der Beurteilung der Arbeiten der Forschungsinstitute angewendet werden soll.
