Abstract

Das ifo Geschäftsklima für die gewerbliche Wirtschaft Deutschlands hat sich im August erneut verbessert. Die Unternehmen bewerten ihre momentane Geschäftslage zum zweiten Mal in Folge weniger negativ. Im Vergleich zur Situation vor einem Jahr ist die derzeitige Lage der Unternehmen aber erheblich schlechter. Hinsichtlich der Geschäftsentwicklung in den nächsten sechs Monaten sind die Befragungsteilnehmer weniger skeptisch als im Juli. Die Wirtschaft in Deutschland erholt sich langsam von ihrem Sturz. Dennoch bleiben Risiken für einen Rückfall. Das ifo Beschäftigungsbarometer für die gewerbliche Wirtschaft Deutschlands ist im August etwas gestiegen. Der Druck auf den Personalbestand hat nachgelassen. Dennoch sind die Personalplanungen der Unternehmen weiterhin auf Beschäftigungsreduzierung ausgerichtet.
