Tips: Econ Journal Watch

Econ Journal Watch är en tidskrift jag tipsar om lite då och då, främst för att den innehåller mycket intressant på en meta-nivå rörande nationalekonomisk forskning.

Just nu kallar de in papper om preferensförfalskning inom akademien:

In his or her essay, the author should clarify the kind of preference falsification in which he or she has engaged. For example:

  • Building models one does not really believe to be useful or relevant.
  • Making simplifications that obscure or omit important things.
  • Using data one does not really believe in.
  • Focusing on the statistical significance of one’s findings while quietly doubting economic significance.
  • Engaging in data mining.
  • Drawing “policy implications” that one knows are inappropriate or misleading.
  • Keeping the discourse “between the 40 yard lines”so as to avoid being outspoken; knowingly eliding fundamental issues.
  • Tilting the flavor of policy judgments to make a paper more acceptable to referees, editors, publishers, or funders.
  • Disguising one’s methodological or ideological views,such as by omitting revealing activities or publications fromone’s vitae.
  • For government, institute, or corporate economists: Having to significantly play along with things one does not believe in.
Berömvärt - men kommer någon att nappa?

För övrigt: Redaktör Klein kunde inte låta bli att påpeka följande:
Let it be known that in his 1997article in American Journal of Economics and Sociology,EJW Co-editor Fred Foldvary wrote:
"the next major bust, if there is no major interruptionsuch as a global war, will be around 2008."
Citation: Fred E. Foldvary. 1997. The Business Cycle: AGeorgist-AustrianSynthesis. American Journal of Economicsand Sociology 56(4): 521-41, quote at p. 538

Du ska ha tusen tack för tipset. Redaktören har dessutom utsett Ratio till den enda marknadsliberala fyrbåken utanför den anglosaxiska världen:
