    rent seeking

    Context/ examples
    If returns to ability are the greatest in rent seeking, then economic growth is inhibited by drawing the most talented people away from productive sectors into rent seeking.

    That sentence makes no sense to me. Are you sure about it? Context?

    Yes, I'm sure about it. I copied this sentence from an economic review. The text discusses the relationship between education and economic growth.

    In einem ähnlichen Context habe ich das mal mit: Frührentnerdasein übersetzt. Vielleicht hilft's.

    Die 3 letztgenannten Definitionen sind m.E. nicht korrekt. Es geht um "Sekundärgewinne", also das Erzielen von Gewinnen/Einkommen ohne Produktion oder anderen Formen echter Wertschaffung.


    Beispiel: die meisten Formen von Besteuerung, oder der Verkauf elektronischer Token statt physischer Besitzanteile

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

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


     One is the competition for politically protected transfers of wealth (see Britannica, above)

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

    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. ...
