Abstract

Der vorliegende Beitrag untersucht die Frage nach der Wahl eines optimalen Wechselkursregimes für ausgewählte Transformationsländer (Tschechische Republik, Ungarn, Estland, Slowenien und Polen), die an einer baldigen Aufnahme in die EWWU interessiert sind. Der gewählte Analyseansatz greift auf positive und normative Hinweise der Club Theorie zurück. Es wird zunächst gezeigt, wie sich die optimale Größe (Anzahl der Mitglieder) und die optimale Bereitstellung des Clubgutes (Inflationsrate) einer Währungsunion simultan bestimmen lassen. Gleichfalls wird die Anreizstruktur für bisherige Mitglieder, neue aufzunehmen und für Aufnahmekandidaten, der Währungsunion beizutreten, dargestellt. Vor diesem Hintergrund werden Kriterien (Kosten und Nutzen des Beitritts) für eine bestmögliche Strategie der Wechselkurspolitik der Beitrittskandidaten zur Vorbereitung auf den EURO entwickelt. Der am Ende erarbeitete Vorschlag läuft darauf hinaus, das Konzept von der Schlange im Tunnel neu zu beleben, wobei die Reformstaaten enge Bandbreiten ihrer Wechselkurse untereinander und vergleichsweise weite gegenüber dem EURO wählen sollten.
