Der Economist hat aktuell zwei Beiträge über das "Wirtschaftswunder", das wir derzeit in Deutschland nach Meinung mancher erleben.
Warum Deutschland laut Economist so gut durch die Krise gekommen ist?
"What’s Germany’s secret? It helps that the country did not experience a property or credit bubble, and that it has kept its public finances admirably under control. But above all Germany’s success has been export-driven: unlike most other big rich economies it has maintained its share of world exports over the past decade, even as China has risen."Insgesamt zeigt der Economist, dass Deutschland den Zahlen nach mit das erfolgreichste G7-Land der vergangenen Dekade war.
Der Beitrag schließt mit dem Ausblick:
(ht Freakonomics)"Germany has topped the G7 league over the past decade mainly because it avoided a credit bubble. But to maintain its performance over the next decade it needs to boost both domestic spending and its services sector. The good news is that most of Germany’s growth last year did come from domestic demand, not exports. Business investment took the lead, but in the fourth quarter real consumer spending was almost 2% higher than a year ago. The lowest unemployment rate for almost 20 years is likely to push up wages this year and to encourage households to spend more of their income. A recovery which is “Made in Germany” would enable the country to keep up the pace."
