    What on earth is this about? More context would certainly help.

    And this is even more helpful:

    Try the linguee link - it has something like "zinsökonmie" - that's probably it.

    ok. danke. hast recht, ich hätte auch mal googeln können.. ich glaube, lobbyismus trifft es ganz gut. grob gesagt geht es um demokratisierungsprozesse und wie man diese in den gang bekommt.
    hier der ganze satz:
    the wider the scope of state ownership of and control over economic life, the wider is the scope for rent seeking and control by abusive, predatory elites.

    Ja, das könnte es sein. Aber vielleicht findest du etwas bei Linguee, oder halt nochmal googeln mit "site:de"

    Nein, mit Lobbying wäre falsch übersetzt.


    "rent-seeking" beschreibt Sekundärgewinne, ohne selbst etwas zu produzieren oder zusätzlichen Wert zu schaffen.

    Zumindest im wirtschaftswissenschaftlichen Kontext wird der Begriff Rent-Seeking nicht übersetzt; umgangssprachlich geht es um Geldgier.

    Wenn Wirtschaftswissenschaftler zu faul sind, um den Begriff in ihrer Muttersprache zu beschreiben, heißt das nicht, dass das nicht möglich oder sinnvoll ist.

    Ich habe "rent seeking" immer als "Suche nach (möglichst hoher) Rendite" verstanden.

    Das muss nichts mit einer klassischen Rente oder gar staatlichen Sozialleistungen zu tun haben.

    Zumindest in diesem Kontext sind "rent" und "Rente" meiner Meinung nach falsche Freunde.

    Rent-seeking: the competition for politically protected transfers of wealth

    https://www.britannica.com/topic/rent-seeking

    Comment

    I think the confusion over rent-seeking lies in the fact that there are two related but distinct meanings of the term:


    One relates to the competition for politically protected transfers of wealth (see Britannica, above).


    The other means seeking to grow one's existing wealth without any contribution to productivity.



    The two are related. Both are in common use, the context should make clear which is meant.

    rent seeking, competition for politically protected transfers of wealth.

    The typical rent-seeking scenario includes an economic rent, or “prize,” and a set of actors that create, capture, and finance the prize. The government creates the prize by setting, for example, a public subsidy, an import license, or a monopoly protected by legal entry barriers. Interest groups struggle to influence the government and thereby capture the prize, a contest that may include lobbying, public-relations campaigns, and bribery of government officials. Unorganized segments of the public complete the rent-seeking picture, for they are the actors from whom resources are extracted to finance the prize, via taxes or higher monopolistic prices.

    Economic research on rent seeking has focused on both its causes and its consequences. ...
