Zum Stand der Konvergenz in Ostdeutschland im Jahr 1999


  • Wolfgang Nierhaus



Die starken Zuwachsraten, die in der ostdeutschen Wirtschaft in den Jahren 1992 bis 1996 verzeichnet wurden, endeten 1997, als das Wachstumstempo unter das in Westdeutschland sank, wo es heute noch ist. Die hohen Lohnstückkosten und ebenfalls die überhöhten Lohnkosten in Ostdeutschland sind Hauptgründe dafür, das ein nachhaltiger Wachstumsprozeß in Ostdeutschland bisher nicht in Gang gekommen ist. Allerdings wird die verbesserte Einkommenssituation der privaten Haushalte und die nach wie vor höhere Kaufkraft der D-Mark in Ostdeutschland hervorgehoben.
