Read e-book online Technologischer Fortschritt und Beschäftigung (German PDF

By Sascha Wahl

ISBN-10: 3656085544

ISBN-13: 9783656085546

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2010 im Fachbereich VWL - Konjunktur und Wachstum, Universität Hohenheim, Veranstaltung: Vertieferseminars Wachstum und Beschäftigung/AVWL-Seminars, Sprache: Deutsch, summary: 1. Einleitung
Die Diskussion über den Technologischen Fortschritt zieht sich wie ein roter Faden durch
die ökonomische Wissenschaft. Von Adam Smith, der in Bezug auf die quantitativen Beschäftigungseffekte
eine durchaus optimistic Sichtweise in seinem Hauptwerk „Der Wohlstand
der Nationen“ einnimmt, über David Ricardo, der mit seinem Maschineriekapitel
den Grundstein für viele Kontroversen und eine tiefergehende examine legt, und Knut
Wicksell, der als erster neoklassischer Ökonom die Grenzproduktivitätstheorie auf diese
Problematik anwendet, bis hin zu Paul Krugman, der sich bezüglich der Auswirkungen
des Technologischen Fortschritts auf die Einkommens- und Vermögensverteilung äußert,
stellt diese Diskussion ein immer wiederkehrendes second dar. Damit wird deutlich, dass
das Thema heutzutage, wenn guy von Rationalisierungsmaßnahmen und Outsourcing
spricht, ebenso präsent ist, wie zu den Zeiten der Industriellen Revolution. Dabei dreht
sich die Diskussion letztendlich immer um die zentrale Fragestellung, inwiefern der Technologische
Fortschritt Auslöser für eine technologisch bedingte Arbeitslosigkeit ist und
welche Bedingungen erfüllt werden müssen, damit freigesetzte Arbeitskräfte schnellst
möglichst absorbiert werden. In der folgenden Darstellung sollen die theoretischen Erkenntnisse
und deren Implikationen bezüglich dieser Frage erläutert werden.
