Abstract

Silja Graupe und Harald Schwaetzer fragen nach Bildungsorten transformativ-reflexiver Ökonomie. Dafür untersuchen sie verschiedene Erkenntnisformen, die beeinflusste, die objektive, die sinnstiftende, die kreative und die existentielle Erkenntnis. Deren gründliche Reflexion bietet ihnen die Grundlage, die heutigen Aufgaben und Möglichkeiten ökonomischer Bildung zu umreißen.
... Our empirical research showed that heterodox and plural mainstream economists are almost exclusively situated at small universities or small economic department (e.g. the universities of Bremen or Oldenburg), whereas large universities are dominated by mainstream economic approaches. Given the paradigmatic structure of economics at German-speaking universities it seems to be a promising strategy to establish "isles of heterodoxy" as recently argued by (Graupe & Schwaetzer, 2017) in order to overcome the continuing marginalization of heterodox and plural approaches. During the last years at least some steps in this direction have been taken. ...

This paper studies the research interests, paradigmatic orientation and political orientation of about 700 full professors of economics at universities located in German - speaking countries. In doing so, we captured biographical and institutional information on these professorships by collecting data from personal and professional websites as well as publicly available CVs to derive indicators on the research orientation, the paradigmatic stance and the political involvement. The main contribution of this paper, hence, is empirical in nature. It documents the fairly homogenous paradigmatic stance of German - speaking academic economics, as criticized in recent debates on pluralism in economics, but also identifies venues of change within the existing paradigmatic s etup. Furthermore, we show that a big share of German economists, active in economic policy advice bodies have institutional connections to the ordoliberal research program. This politico - ideological conjunction thus provides a possible explanation for the “German special path” in economic policy after the financial crisis.
