From Miracle to Crisis? The German Economy at the End of the Twentieth Century

Karl-Heinz Paqué

Chapter 1 in East Germany’s Economic Development since Unification, 1998, pp 3-19 from Palgrave Macmillan

Abstract: Abstract This chapter is intended to explore whether, as a result of unification, the German economic miracle is facing a crisis. The analysis indicates that the German economy can be expected to follow its traditional path, subject to three qualifications: the united Germany will face a huge fiscal burden, a less comfortable current account balance and, as between eastern and western Germany, a gap which may lead to changes in fiscal federalism and in the practice of collective wage-bargaining.
