Abstract

Fehlt der Bundesregierung ein mittelfristiges Konzept zur Haushaltssanierung? Dr. Barbara Hendricks, Bundesministerium der Finanzen, erläutert mit ihrem Beitrag das Haushaltskonzept der Bundesregierung für das Jahr 2005 und unterstreicht, dass das Konzept einen Weg aus dem Konflikt zwischen notwendigem Defizitabbau einerseits und konjunkturellen Erfordernissen andererseits weist. Dieter Ondracek, Deutsche Steuer-Gewerkschaft, sieht vor allem eine Notwendigkeit darin, dass Bewegung in die Struktur der Finanzpolitik gebracht wird: "Eine Steuervereinfachung durch Verzicht auf steuerliche Vergünstigungen und Sonderregelungen ist neben der konsequenten Anwendung geltender Steuergesetze ein wirksamer Beitrag zur Sanierung der öffentlichen Haushalte." Für Dr. Udo Ludwig, Institut für Wirtschaftsforschung Halle, ist eine Arbeitszeitverlängerung kein Mittel zur Haushaltssanierung.
