Anmerkungen zur Mindestlohndebatte: Elastizitäten, Strukturparameter und Topfschlagen

  • Bernd Fitzenberger

In diesem Beitrag weist Bernd Fitzenberger, Universität Freiburg, auf einige wirtschaftstheoretische Aspekte hin, die seiner Meinung nach in der aktuellen Debatte in Deutschland bisher nicht hinreichend beachtet wurden, und diskutiert relevante empirischen Ansätze. Er kommt zu dem Ergebnis, dass ein flächendeckender Mindestlohn kein »zielgruppenorientiertes Mittel der Armutsbekämpfung« sei. Angesichts des aktuellen Diskussionsstandes könne er der Einführung eines noch so moderaten Mindestlohns nicht zustimmen. Allerdings seien Umstände denkbar, unter denen die Einführung eines moderaten Mindestlohns sinnvoll wäre.
