Preiskonvergenz in der erweiterten Europäischen Union


  • Christian Dreger
  • Konstantin A. Kholodilin


Die fortschreitende europäische Integration führt tendenziell zu einer Annäherung der Preise von Gütern und Dienstleistungen. Mit der Erweiterung der EU hat sich dieser Prozess etwas beschleunigt. Der Beitritt der mittel- und osteuropäischen Länder beeinflusst die Preiskonvergenz auf zweierlei Weise. Zum einen erhöht sich in der EU insgesamt der Druck auf die Preise aufgrund des intensiveren Wettbewerbs. Zum anderen steigt das bisher noch relativ niedrige Preisniveau in den neuen Mitgliedsländern im Zuge des wirtschaftlichen Aufholprozesses.
