Zur Diskussion gestellt - Nachtrag: Krise der Wirtschaftswissenschaften: Braucht die VWL eine Neuausrichtung?

Abstract

Ergänzend zu den Beiträgen im ifo Schnelldienst Nr. 14/2009 äußerst sich Justus Haucap, Universität Düsseldorf, zum »Methodenstreit« in der VWL. Exzellente Ökonomen sollten, seiner Meinung nach, alles beherrschen: Theorie, Empirie und institutionelle Kenntnisse: »Weil wir aber nicht alle kleine Ronaldos der VWL sind und nicht alle Krugman oder Stiglitz heißen, brauchen wir eine Arbeitsteilung und das Nebeneinander dieser drei verschiedenen, sich ergänzenden Spezialisierungen und keine Monokultur des einen oder anderen ›Lagers‹.«
