Wettbewerb als Entdeckungsverfahren

Listed author(s):

Die Theorie des Wettbewerbs als Entdeckungsverfahren behauptet, daß die Ergebnisse des Wettbewerbes nicht vorhergesagt werden können, weil hierzu Tatsachen benötigt würden, die durch ihn erst entdeckt werden sollen. Dann wäre es allerdings unmöglich, Aussagen über Wettbewerb empirisch zu testen. Unser Beitrag wendet sich gegen diese Ansicht. Wettbewerbsergebnisse können durchaus vorhergesagt werden, soweit die Vorhersage sich auf Muster und nicht auf Einzelergebnisse bezieht. Der Beitrag beschreibt eine ?double-oral auction?, durchgeführt als Hörsaal-Experiment, und zeigt auf, daß Wettbewerb mit hoher Wahrscheinlichkeit sowohl das Marktgleichgewicht als auch die wohlfahrtsmaximierende Zahl von Transaktionen entdeckt.
