Abstract

Die Hartz IV Reform des Arbeitsmarktes ist eine der politisch umstrittensten Reformen, die seit der Wiedervereinigung in der Bundesrepublik durchgeführt wurden. Mit ihr werden Gefährdungen des Lebensstandards bis hin zu Armut verbunden. Gleichzeitig konnte die Bundesrepublik ihre Arbeitslosenquote über die letzten Jahre so stark senken wie fast kein anderes Land in Europa oder in anderen Ländern der OECD. Welche Rolle spielen die Hartz Reformen in dieser Erfolgsgeschichte? Andrey Launov und Klaus Wälde (2013a) zeigen, dass die Hartz IV Gesetzte de facto keinen erwähnenswerten Beitrag lieferten zur Reduktion der Arbeitslosigkeit. Gleichzeitig waren die anderen Reformen, Hartz I bis Hartz III, umso hilfreicher.
