Abstract

Wenige Jahre nach der Etablierung der EWU zeigt sich ein gespaltenes Bild. Trotz unbestreitbarer Erfolge bei der Sicherung von Preisstabilität scheint die Beschäftigungs-Performance des Euroraums getrübt. Im vorliegenden Beitrag wird die These vertreten, dass dies auch an einer mangelhaften Koordination Zentralbank und Gewerkschaften liegt. Hierzu wird ein spieltheoretisches Modell konstruiert, mit dem verschiedene makroökonomische Ergebnisse erklärt werden können. Mit einem Reputationsgleichgewicht wird ein Vorschlag dargestellt, der es Zentralbank und Gewerkschaften ermöglichen würde, Preisstabilität und einen hohen Beschäftigungsstand vereinbar zu machen. Wesentliche Voraussetzungen hierfür scheinen in Euroland aber nicht erfüllt zu sein.
