Ökonomische Implikation der Patentierung von Computersoftware
In: List Forum Band 31
The current system set up to boost the economy in eastern Germany turns out to be expensive and little efficient: There is hardly any convergence to perceive. Active labour market policy reveals poor effects, the same as the attempts to foster investments, and infrastructure doesn't seem to be a major growth obstacle any more. Reforms aimed at the causes of the poor economic performance should let the east German laender out of Germany's rigid institutional framework. This would enable the east German laender to remove investment obstacles. As locational competition becomes harder, they could reach for a unique competitive position. The transfers to East Germany's laender shouldn't be paid within the federal systems, which are poorly suitable for an economy supposed to catch up. Lump-sum payments at the laender's free disposal are more appropriate. As east Germany's laender obtain the means to help themselves, transfers can be reduced more quickly.(Original text only available in german language)
