moment matching in limited-complexity quantitative macro.

economics / economists.

Here is my Forschungs und Lehre Artikel "Professor ist Professor" on the US-German differences in
academic careers in Economics. Here is an extended version of this article.

Here is the seventh installment of my (irregular) FAZIT column (in German, it's called Konferenzgeflüster).
The idea: I regularly go to a few conferences every year and I hear so much good and interesting
new research that likely will never be seen by a general audience, even though it might be interesting
to the interested public at large. I figured: why not briefly talk about it with one of the excellent
FAZIT journalists? There is just too much bad reporting about what allegedly economists do and how
they allegedly worship a certain political and social ideology, so that I hope to give the general public
a better glimpse
at least into what academic economists are really doing.
Extra kudos to FAZIT which currently seems to be the only German media outlet where
one can have a serious and non-ideological discussion on Economics as an academic discipline.
