Die Messung des Sozialstaates: Beschäftigungspolitische Unterschiede zwischen Brutto- und Nettosozialleistungsquote

Listed author(s):
  • Kemmerling, Achim

Das Konzept der Nettosozialleistungsquote (NSLQ) von W. Adema hat in jüngster Zeit einige zentrale Annahmen der vergleichenden Wohlfahrtsstaatenforschung erschüttert. Nicht nur die quantitative Dimension des Wohlfahrtsstaates in OECD-Ländern, sondern auch seine strukturelle Zusammensetzung erscheinen dadurch in einem anderen Licht. Dieses Diskussionspapier stellt die wesentlichsten Unterschiede zwischen klassischen Indikatoren des Sozialstaates und der NSLQ dar und entwickelt einige Hypothesen zu den Implikationen der NSLQ. Einerseits soll danach gefragt werden, was die NSLQ für die Suche nach Erklärungsursachen und die Typologisierung von Wohlfahrtsstaaten bedeuten kann. Andererseits werden wichtige Korrelate der NSLQ untersucht, um Anhaltspunkte für eine Effizienzbetrachtung der Wohlfahrtsstaaten in ausgewählten OECD-Ländern zu gewinnen. Die NSLQ liefert wertvolle Ergebnisse über parteipolitische Präferenzen für unterschiedliche Politikinstrumente sowie über die Verteilungswirkungen der steuerlichen Anreizsysteme. Sie ist jedoch gegenwärtig nur sehr bedingt für die Evaluation von allokativer Effizienz und beschäftigungspolitischer Performanz verwendbar.
