Abstract: Widely independent from the specific economic structure of a country, investment is indispensable for economic development. Against this background, backlogs in private and public investment, especially in fields which are critical for future growth, are often seen as a cause for concern. This paper deals with the development of private and public investment activity in Germany since 1991. Using a probit model, we observe for small and medium-sized businesses that their probability of investing seems to increase with higher profit margins, equity capital ratios and employment growth, as well as with better business expectations.
