Abstract

Ziel dieses Beitrags ist die Quantifizierung der mit der Einführung des Arbeitslosengeldes II verbundenen Arbeitsangebots- und Beschäftigungseffekte. Zusätzlich wird ein Reformszenario simuliert, welches die Anreizstruktur im Niedriglohnbereich verbessern soll. Methodisch wird ein Mikrosimulationsmodell mit einem allgemeinen Gleichgewichtsmodell kombiniert. Dieses Vorgehen vereint die Vorteile der Mikrosimulation durch die detaillierte Berücksichtigung der Haushalte auf Basis der Daten des Sozioökonomischen Panels mit den Vorteilen eines allgemeinen Gleichgewichtsmodells. So werden neben den Erstrundeneffekten auch Rückkopplungseffekte aufgrund von Preisänderungen mit eingeschlossen. Für die Hartz IV-Reform lässt sich auf Basis der Simulationsergebnisse ein geringfügiger Beschäftigungsgewinn in Höhe von 45.000 Personen quantifizieren. Demgegenüber errechnet sich für das alternative Szenario, welches eine Absenkung der Regelsätze sowie der Transferentzugsquote vorsieht, ein Beschäftigungsgewinn von 190.000 Personen.
