Abstract

Deutschland wurde bereits zweimal, 1966–1969 und 2005–2009, von einer großen Koalition regiert. Deskriptive Zeitreihenanalysen wirtschaftspolitischer Kennzahlen zeigen nicht auf, dass es unter diesen großen Koalitionen signifikante Kurswechsel in der Wirtschaftspolitik gab. Qualitative Analysen zeigen jedoch, dass die erste große Koalition 1966-1969 die Staatstätigkeit ausgeweitet hat. Mit der im Dezember 2013 ins Amt gewählten Koalition scheint es ähnlich zu sein: Der Wechsel des Koalitionspartners der CDU/CSU von der FDP zur SPD lässt deutlich expansivere Wirtschaftspolitiken und eine Ausweitung der Staatstätigkeit erwarten.
