Familienpolitik: ordnungspolitische Leitplanken im dichten Nebel des Verteilungskampfes

Registered author(s):

    Die Familienpolitik ist in jüngster Zeit ins Zentrum der wirtschaftspolitischen Debatte in Deutschland gerückt. Der Beitrag analysiert, ob es aus ökonomischer Sicht Gründe dafür gibt, dass der Staat familienpolitische Verantwortung übernehmen sollte und welche Reformen im familienpolitischen Bereich angeraten erscheinen. Er weist darauf hin, dass die Entscheidung für oder gegen Kinder zunächst einmal einzig und allein bei den Eltern liegen sollte, dass aber ex post die Argumente Steuergerechtigkeit, Armutsvermeidung und externe Effekte für eine staatliche Unterstützung von Familien sprechen. Allerdings sollte diese nicht in einer weiteren drastischen Erhöhung des Kindergeldes bestehen, sondern vielmehr in verbesserten institutionellen Rahmenbedingungen für die Vereinbarkeit von Beruf und Familie.
