Abstract

Zusammenfassung Internationale Organisationen empfehlen nachdrücklich, öffentliche Haushalte von der klassischen kameralen Buchführung auf die doppelte Buchführung (Doppik) umzustellen. Doppische Haushalte sollen den Wertverzehr der öffentlichen Infrastruktur offenlegen und die implizite Verschuldung sichtbar machen. Drei unabhängig voneinander entstandene Studien haben die Wirkung der Doppik am Beispiel deutscher Kommunen evaluiert und kommen zu teils überraschenden Ergebnissen. Doppisch buchende Kommunen veräußern zwar wie erwartet weniger öffentliches Vermögen, sie investieren aber tendenziell auch weniger in neues Vermögen. Diese empirischen Ergebnisse nähren Zweifel, ob die doppelte Buchführung tatsächlich nachhaltigere Haushaltsentscheidungen fördert.
