Hat die „ökonomische Theorie der Indexzahlen“ einen Nutzen für die Praxis der Preisstatistik?

  • von der Lippe, Peter

Die mit dem Thema gestellte Frage wird sehr unterschiedlich beantwortet. Sie ist vielleicht sogar von bleibender Aktualität, selbst dann, wenn sich die anfängliche Begeisterung für den im Folgenden dargestellten „ökonomischen“ oder COLI-Ansatz abgekühlt haben sollte. Die Begeisterung ist vor allem von der sog. „Boskin Kommission“ in den USA geschürt worden und hat, zumindest was das theoretische Leitbild betrifft, auch das BLS erfasst. Es hat jedoch auch stets kritische Stimmen gegeben, und wir machen kein Hehl daraus, dass wir eher zu der Auffassung von Ralph Turvey neigen, der glaubt, der Ansatz “can safely be ignored by statistical offices” oder dass in der Preisstatistik “theorising should give way to pragmatism”, als dazu, die im Thema gestellte Frage zu bejahen.
