Ostdeutsche Wirtschaft im Jahr 2011: Trotz Wachstumsbeschleunigung keine Fortschritte im gesamtwirtschaftlichen Aufholprozess
AbstractAll in all, the IWH expects that GDP of East Germany will increase by 2.8% this year. With this forecast, the growth gap with the West will indeed reduce significantly, but the growth rate remains once again behind the West. The reason is not only that the East German federal states have to consolidate their budgets. The weaker increase in aggregate output is also due to export and innovation weakness, the lack of large enterprises, the aging and declining population.
