^ why are Lausanne, EPFL, Geneva and USI even in this ranking? These are not even German speaking places. Why not add Dutch universities as well....
lausanne bro here, nobody speaks german here
Only Adrian Bruhin, Bettina Klaus, Rafael Lalive, Jürgen Maurer and Dominic Rohner.

None of the Leibniz institute presidents on this list it seems. All these top economists...

You mean having no shame and ridiculing economic research? He is unworthy of a professor title.
^try to see his ranking when only counting A and A+ publications. Oh, wait, where did he disappear?
Quantity has its own quality.
If he is not worth to be called a prof, then neither is big bucks Haselmann.

I understand that, but it’s still remarkable. Maybe the aim should be to have good researchers there to be able to guide the institutes and make them better? Can someone who has never been at the top of the game play that role?

Yes, because being at the top of the game play does not mean that you have anything meaningful to say about policy.

Sure on the basis of gut instinct that is. We indeed get a lot of this.

There are two separate issues here. Not sure what you mean with "Leibniz institute presidents".
Leibniz institute presidents comprise e.g. the ifo Institute, i.e. Clemens Fuest. Similarly, you could think of Marcel Fratzscher at DIW, Gabriel Felbermayr in Kiel, etc.. My sense is that these are people with sufficiently good academic credentials to sustain a serious conversation with economists. To be honest, I do not think that candidates were standing in queues to get these jobs. Most academicresearchoriented economists are not keen on such jobs. The current presidents balance the tradeoff between good academic credentials and the willingness to have a rather political/managementintensive job pretty well.
What to me is the bigger scandal are the MPI directors. Max Planck Institutes are supposed to be at the forefront of research, doing fundamental work for the discipline. The sky should be the limit (and indeed it is, in terms of budget). This may be true for many MPI directors in the sciences, but is certainly not true for Econ. Since Hellwig retired, the economics Max Planck Institutes are a joke. Not one of the directors can be said to be a leader in his field, someone with worldwide recognition. Sutter? Konrad? BoerschSupan? Gimme a break. Like him or not, the only person of that stature in Germany currently is Armin Falk, and he prefers to spend private money.
