Abstract: The study examines public statements by German politicians and economic policy advisors on questions of deregulation. The period covered stretches from the former chancellor Gerhard Schröder's speech on the Agenda 2010 reform package in early 2003 until the beginning of the financial crisis in 2007. Based on the citations found, an index is created with which one can measure the degree of support for cutting back the government's influence on the economy. According to this index, economic policy advisors have been pushing much harder for deregulation than the large majority of German politicians. Among politicians, those of the FDP have been most in favor of cutting back the government's influence, followed by the CDU/CSU politicians. Interestingly, some of the CDU/CSU politicians have been less in favor of deregulation than prominent Social Democrats.
