Transformation in Ostdeutschland: Hat die Arbeitsmarktpolitik den Betroffenen geholfen?
In order to smooth the transition from a planned to a market economy, labour market policies were applied to an unprecedented extent in East Germany. This paper analyses the effects of these policies. As it turns out, labour market policies not only were largely unsuccessful; in many cases they were even prejudicial to the unemployed as well as to regular employees..
