Statistische Adäquation bei Fortentwicklung der makrökonomischen Wirtschaftstheorie / Statistical Adequacy and the Evolution of Macroeconomic Theory
Adequacy (formerly: correspondence) generally concerns the correspondence of statement and facts. In economics we specially look for the statistical adequacy of variables and data (by means of a minimization of the so-called adequation discrepancy). Hereby we aim at empirical validity of hypotheses. This is extremely difficult in the case of a stationary statistical system on the one hand (see the System of National Accounts) and an evolving system of macroeconomic definitions on the other hand. The definitions of macro-economic variables with some importance within the growth and business cycle models are sometimes contradictory and insofar without any value for orientation.
