Zur Herleitung der Thünen'schen Grabsteinformel


  • Nellinger, Ludwig


In Abhandlungen von Dorfman und Samuelson 1986 und van Suntum 1988 wird Thünen's berühmte Grabsteinformel unter Berücksichtigung seiner spezifischen Annahmen bestätigt. Allerdings wird Thüenen's Vorgehen zur Erzielung dieses Ergebnisses bis heute kontrovers diskutiert. Mit diesem Papier wird versucht, Thüenen's Vorgehen Schritt für Schritt nachzuvollziehen. Zu diesem Zweck wird Thüenen's Ableitung zunächst graphisch dargestellt. Anschließend wird eine algebraische Rekonstruktion des Problems dem Thünen'schen Vorgehen gegenüber gestellt. Bestätigungen und Kritiken der Lohnformel in den letzten Dekaden werden vor diesem Hintergrund kurz kommentiert.
