Die Unternehmensteuerreform 2008: Deutschlands Antwort auf die Globalisierung - oder doch ein Stückwerk?


  • Christian Baretti
  • Doina Radulescu
  • Michael Stimmelmayr


Zum Jahresbeginn trat die Unternehmensteuerreform 2008 in Kraft. Christian Baretti, Doina Maria Radulescu und Michael Stimmelmayr untersuchen hier, inwieweit die Reform die Attraktivität des Wirtschaftsstandorts Deutschland verbessert wird. Ihrer Ansicht nach wird die Senkung der Körperschaftsteuerbelastung für Kapitalgesellschaften diesem Ziel gerecht. Den weiteren - insbesondere zur Gegenfinanzierung - ergriffenen Maßnahmen fehlt es jedoch an Stringenz. Trotz positiver Signalwirkung zeugt die Steuerreform daher an vielen Stellen von Stückwerk.
