Eine ökonomische Nachbetrachtung der Münchner Hochhausabstimmung


  • Christoph Eichhorn
  • Marco Sahm
  • Frank Westermann


Am 21. November 2004 haben sich die Münchner in einem Bürgerentscheid mit knapper Mehrheit dafür ausgesprochen, die Maximalhöhe für neue Hochhäuser auf 100 Meter zu begrenzen. Stark verkürzt hießen die Alternativen bei dieser Wahl: "Hochhäuser" oder "keine Hochhäuser". Aus ökonomischer Betrachtung greift diese Sichtweise zu kurz. Prof. Frank Westermann, Christoph Eichhorn und Marco Sahm, Universität München, zeigen, dass eine vernünftigere Fragestellung mit hoher Wahrscheinlichkeit zu anderen Ergebnissen geführt hätte.
