Berlin. Employer boss Rainer Dolger sees no reason to give all clarity on the current economic crisis. “We haven’t reached the mountain yet,” he told Welt am Sonntag.
Many companies see their very existence in jeopardy and some have already filed for bankruptcy because their business model is no longer working due to rising energy costs. Against the backdrop of improved economic data, Federal Chancellor Olaf Scholz (SPD) announced this week that the German economy will not slip into recession in 2023. “In addition to the acute crisis, we are in the midst of a structural change,” Dolger emphasized. Meanwhile, Germany lags far behind in the international positioning competition.
“We will not be able to maintain the prosperity we are used to in Germany,” warned the head of the Federation of German Employers’ Associations (BDA). By 2030, the number of working people will be reduced by five million, said the head of the BDA. This cannot be compensated for on this scale. Thus the state will have lower taxes and contribution income available.
He demanded that social systems must adapt to this.
