Dabei ist den meisten der Ernst der Lage durchaus bewusst. Mit 27 Prozent schätzen so wenige die allgemeine Wirtschaftslage als gut ein wie seit der Finanzkrise nicht mehr. Auch der Ausblick fällt durchwachsen aus. Was die wirtschaftlichen Herausforderungen angeht, sieht die Hälfte Deutschland gut, die Hälfte schlecht aufgestellt. Gleichzeitig ist aber das Vertrauen in die Politik da. 92 Prozent finden es zum Beispiel richtig, dass Firmen Hilfsgelder erhalten, wenn sie aufgrund der Pandemie in Schwierigkeiten geraten. Fast zwei Drittel glauben, dass die Regierung in der Lage ist, die wirtschaftlichen Probleme des Landes zu lösen. pm, ots
Despite the crisis, two-thirds of Germans consider their economic situation to be good. Despite the crisis, two-thirds of Germans consider their economic situation to be good. This is shown by the results of a survey by the banking association, which are exclusively available to the Tagesspiegel.
According to the survey, significantly more people are even satisfied than in previous years. One reason is likely to be that most have hardly suffered any losses from Corona so far. 76 percent said they had been hardly or not at all financially affected by the crisis so far.
The fact that many have automatically spent less could also play a role.
"Many were unable to go on vacation, were forced to cut back on consumption during the crisis and have saved money," Andreas Krautscheid, chief executive of the banking association, told the Tagespiegel. "This also conveys the feeling that, after all, you're doing quite well financially."
Yet most are well aware of the seriousness of the situation. At 27 percent, so few assess the general economic situation as good than at any time since the financial crisis. The outlook is also mixed. As far as the economic challenges are concerned, half see Germany in a good position, while half see it in a poor position. At the same time, however, there is confidence in politics. 92 percent, for example, think it is right that companies receive aid money if they get into difficulties due to the pandemic. Almost two-thirds believe that the government is capable of solving the country's economic problems. pm, ots, mei
