Was ist eine Rezession?


  • Klaus Abberger
  • Wolfgang Nierhaus



Steht der deutschen Wirtschaft eine Rezession bevor? Das ist eine Frage, die momentan häufig in den Medien diskutiert wird. Doch was ist überhaupt eine Rezession? Dies ist nicht zuletzt eine Frage der Definition, die in der wissenschaftlichen Literatur und auch in der Praxis leider nicht einheitlich beantwortet wird. In diesem Beitrag werden einige Definitionen vorgestellt.
