Experimentelle Ökonomik, Modell-Platonismus in neuem Gewande?


  • Werner Güth
  • Hartmut Kliemt


Zusammenfassung: In diesem Beitrag lassen wir herkömmliche Kritikpunkte an der ökonomischen Neo-Klassik Revue passieren und untersuchen, inwieweit die heutige experimentelle Ökonomik diesen durch gesteigerte Realwissenschaftlichkeit entgeht. Eine induktive Vorgehensweise, bei der im Labor Ergebnisse unter möglichst "reinen Bedingungen" gesammelt werden sollen, schwebt zwar vielen Experimentatoren vor. Sie hat jedoch zum einen keinen geltungslogischen, sondern nur heuristischen Wert. Zum anderen gelten die so gewonnenen Ergebnisse zunächst nur für die idealen, nicht für die realen Bedingungen. Um den Versuch einer unabhängigen Formulierung allgemeiner Theorien, die im Labor nur getestet werden, kommt deshalb nicht herum, wer Experimenten einen Status wie etwa in den Naturwissenschaften verleihen will.
