President State

Germany needs a new social contract in Berlin – “the mere sum of individual measures is not yet consistent SME policy. Fiscal frame conditions decisive for the future of the company black-red on the first positive approaches didn’t also. Therefore the balance of medium-sized companies is at best mediocre.” The President of the Federal Federation explained this medium-sized economy (BVMW), Mario Ohoven, the balance sheet of the middle-class policies of the Federal Government. The consistent reduction of bureaucratic regulations consider the pluses. Also the expansion of is taxation in the VAT was a step in the right direction.

“On the other hand the high tax burden of small and medium-sized enterprises continued to grow”, stressed Ohoven. At the corporate tax reform, the breath was assumed halfway in the Grand Coalition. Moreover, a new spin on the control screw threaten after the Bundestag election. Doubt be attached even when the stimulus measures of the Federal Government. “Out of ten Billions of euros from the second economic stimulus package have been called off for municipal investments so far 70 million.

There it not too far is produced with the effectiveness for SMEs”, so the middle-class President. A clear signal for more investment and employment would be better than any Government stimulus program: “The Federal Government should gradually abolish the solidarity surcharge to the end of the next parliamentary term, but at least temporarily suspend.” Professor Stephan A. Jansen of Zeppelin University in Friedrichshafen, Germany sees the high rate of Government as problem, used rarely for the production of public goods. “Over 60 percent of public projects from go away for interest rates, repayments and pensions, so for services of the past, and only 10% for education. That produced a vast generation injustice”, Jansen warns in an interview with the magazine brand one. That’s why it’ll be time for a new social contract and a democratic debate was we State and what we produce private and finance want. “And what role we recognise the State. Must he establish the public goods themselves or just ensure that you are the citizen reliably available? “He must provide for all the uncertainties of life – or just make sure that we do it”, asks the Professor of strategic organization and financing. “The State is interfering, if insolvency threatened large companies – and lets go countless micro enterprises unmoved and medial unobserved bust. Why? Because the relationship between the State and the economy is not clear and we have to do it in two systems with different currencies. Income maximisation, the currency in the political system vote Maximierung is the currency in the economic system. And when it comes to maximizing votes, tens of thousands of Opera workers count more”, assembled Jansen. A message from NeueNachricht.
