Abstract

Ziel des vorliegenden Papiers ist es, den Einfluss makroökonomischer Größen auf die Einkommensungleichheit zu untersuchen. Auf Basis des sozio-ökonomischen Panels (SOEP) analysieren wir erstmalig diesen Zusammenhang für Deutschland. Dabei ist zu beobachten, dass die makroökonomischen Größen nur einen geringen Einfluss haben und ein positiver Zeittrend dominiert. Die Schätzungen eines Fehlerkorrekturmodells ermöglichen jedoch vorsichtige Schlüsse über die Auswirkung der Finanzkrise auf die Ungleichheit. Unter der Annahme, dass sich diese als (negativer) exogener Wachstumsschock manifestiert, ist zu erwarten, dass die Finanzkrise eine dämpfende Wirkung auf die Einkommensungleichheit in Deutschland haben wird.
