Confidence in Traffic Lights Alliance despite fears of China's influence

Confidence in Traffic Lights Alliance despite fears of China’s influence

DrGermany’s business, political and management leaders are pursuing the installation of a traffic light government with exceptional goodwill. This was shown by the current elite poll conducted by pollsters in Allensbach on behalf of the FAZ and the magazine “Capital”. Although the majority of the 489 decision-makers would have preferred a different outcome, 76 percent said they were satisfied with the outcome of coalition negotiations.

It is seen that the level of satisfaction in the higher levels of companies is 82% higher than in politics. Two-thirds of the representative respondents find the coalition of the SPD, the Greens, and the FDP to be strong. Accordingly, a majority is confident Olaf Schultz will become a strong federal advisor and expect the new partners to do well together.

Allensbach boss Renate Kocher was surprised by this apparent result. She told FAZ that the business leaders represented on the elite committee were mostly inclined towards the Union or the FDP, so the CDU is in a very difficult position: “Their supporters gave the new government a very friendly welcome. Now they just look at the traffic light and give it a lot.” From advance praise.” This may be due to the fact that nearly half of the directors in the coalition agreement discovered the FDP line in particular. Just under a fifth think the Social Democrats have made the most, while only 10 percent see the Greens ahead.

The union is also unlikely to like the fact that the majority of influential leaders find most central traffic light projects “correct” and praise them as progressive. Only a third doubt the benefits of Germany’s traffic light schemes. However, decision makers are less confident – no matter how confident they are in Principal Scholz – when it comes to the question of how many projects a traffic light can achieve. “In general, there is currently skepticism about whether the Traffic Light Alliance will make much progress on important core goals,” is the somewhat realistic finding of the SPD, Greens and FDP surveys. This applies above all to the stability of the pension system, but it also applies to the reduction of bureaucracy, the modernization of the administration and the transport infrastructure.

Only two decisions give the elite a safe chance: raising the minimum wage to 12 euros and legalizing cannabis. Only half believe that coal phase-out can occur as early as 2030. Only a quarter consider the goal of producing 80 percent of their electricity from renewable sources by 2030 realistic. However, the majority of committee members wish and expect the traffic light to significantly enhance climate protection. But there are no illusions about the minuses: three-quarters are afraid of great burdens on citizens and the economy. 64 percent expect power supply problems when the last three German nuclear reactors shut down at the end of the year. However, only one in four hopes for a political rethink and an extension of operating periods.
