7th Place: Prof. Schneider is the Most Influential Economists

A corrected version of a ranking of economists in “Die Presse” ranked Prof. Schneider in 7th place.

[Translate to Englisch:] Prof. Schneider

German-language newspapers ("Die Presse", "Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung" and "Neue Zürcher Zeitung") recently released the 8th annual list of the most influential economic researchers of the year but made an initial mistake by not including Emeritus JKU economist Prof. Friedrich Schneider in the ranking. As part of a corrected version, he has now been ranked 7th in the list. Prof. Schneider, particularly well-known for his work focusing on the shadow economy and work done ‘under the table’, remarked: "I am particularly pleased to have ranked third in the category of Academia/Science."
