Abstract

Zwanzig Jahre nach dem Zusammenbruch der DDR wird vielfach Bilanz der wirtschaftlichen Entwicklung seither gezogen. Unbestritten ist, dass im Vergleich zur Situation in der DDR vieles besser geworden ist; unbestritten ist aber auch, dass nicht alle zu Beginn des Vereinigungsprozesses gehegten Erwartungen in Erfüllung gegangen sind. In vielen Bereichen der Wirtschaft gibt es nach wie vor einen deutlichen Abstand zwischen Ost- und Westdeutschland, und die weitere Annäherung gesamtwirtschaftlicher Indikatoren an westdeutsche Werte kommt nur noch schleppend voran. Da die Angleichung der Lebensverhältnisse nach wie vor politisches Ziel ist, stellt sich die Frage, welche wirtschaftspolitischen Maßnahmen hierfür erforderlich sind. Der Beginn einer neuen Legislaturperiode im Bund, aber auch in mehreren ostdeutschen Ländern gibt Anlass, hierüber verstärkt nachzudenken. Im vorliegenden Papier werden nach einer Bestandsaufnahme bisheriger Entwicklungen hierfür verschiedene Ansatzpunkte vorgeschlagen.
