Originäre Wirtschaftskraft der neuen Länder noch schwächer als bislang angenommen

Die Nachfrage in den neuen Ländern wird zu rund einem Viertel durch Transferzuflüsse aus Westdeutschland gestützt. Grund hierfür ist vor allem, dass die in Ostdeutschland selbst erzielten Beiträge zu den Sozialversicherungen (Arbeitslosenund Rentenversicherung) nicht ausreichen, die Ansprüche der Leistungsempfänger zu decken. Darüber hinaus wird auch die schwache Finanzkraft der ostdeutschen Länder in erheblichem Maße durch Leistungen des Bundes und der westdeutschen Länder aufgestockt. Ohne diese West-Ost- Transfers könnte das materielle Wohlstandsniveau in den neuen Ländern in bisheriger Höhe nicht aufrechterhalten werden. Bislang nicht untersucht wurde aber, wie sich diese Transferleistungen auf das ostdeutsche Bruttoinlandsprodukt auswirken. Dieses Forschungsdefizit wird in diesem Beitrag geschlossen.
