Fiskalische Konsolidierung in Deutschland: Dividende ohne Reformen?


  • Christian Breuer



Innerhalb von zehn Jahren hat sich die finanzpolitische Situation in Deutschland gravierend verbessert. Während 2005 das Budgetdefizit regelmäßig mehr als 3% betrug, werden nun strukturelle Überschüsse erwartet. Neben der außerordentlich günstigen Zinsentwicklung lässt sich ein erheblicher Teil der Konsolidierung auf reduzierte Ausgaben für monetäre Sozialleistungen zurückführen. Die Reformen der sozialen Sicherungssysteme wurden überwiegend in den Jahren 2001 bis 2005 durchgeführt, entfalteten ihre Wirkung aber vor allem in den Folgejahren.
