Steuer- und Ausgabenpolitik in Deutschland

  • Alfred Boss
Registered author(s):

    Der Kurs der Finanzpolitik in Deutschland hat sich im Verlauf des Jahres 1999 geändert. Ausgabenkürzungen wurden durchgesetzt, deutliche Steuersenkungen sind geplant. Die Finanzpolitik fördert das Wachstum der Wirtschaft. Allerdings sind die Steuersenkungen bei weitem nicht so groß wie oft behauptet; der Plan zur Reform der Unternehmensbesteuerung enthält etliche Mängel. The stance of fiscal policy in Germany changed in the course of 1999. Government expenditures were cut, significant tax reductions are intended. Fiscal policy fosters the growth of the economy. However, the tax cuts are by far not as large as is often argued; the plan to reform profit taxation includes several disadvantageous elements.
