In this chapter, Binswanger (a critic of the current scientific process)
explains how artificially staged competitions affect science and how they
result in nonsense. An economist himself, Binswanger provides examples from
his field and shows how impact factors and publication pressure reduce the
quality of scientific publications. Some might know his work and arguments
from his book ‘Sinnlose Wettbewerbe’.
