Wealth of knowledge and service occupations depending on Hanover/Dusseldorf – in an open letter to the venture capital entrepreneur Dr. Gottfried Neuhaus rubs Damian sicking Heise columnist on an overly optimistic analysis of the services sector. He refers to the dreams of the new economy. The former promises of changing the industrial to the service economy had proved to be a mistake. Is not an essential foundation of our prosperity is that we manufacture products (cars, machinery, chemical products, etc.) and global market? \”What services we can export it instead\”, wonders sicking and refers to the much quoted sentence we can not live, that we us each other a haircut. \” For the IT expert Udo Nadolski, Managing Director of the Dusseldorf company Harvey Nash, sicking comment is symptomatic of the climate of opinion in Germany – with devastating consequences for the future: the services sector is however not by hairdressers or embossed pizza bakers. A look in the Yearbook of the static Federal Office could help Mr Sicking maybe.

In Germany, especially those areas have grown to provide services for other companies. The sectoral structural change so not primarily unfolds through a displacement of industrial goods by services, but by a displacement of old products by service-intensive manufactured products\”, countering Nadolski. And also for the German export balance, Heise columnist should look more closely. He could learn a lot from the Wiesbaden statistics experts. The relationship between domestic gross value added in exports and imported inputs has shifted strongly in favor of foreign countries. The depth of the production in Germany is extremely. That’s easy-to-read on the effects of the export growth rate in our country. The boom of the world economy, we our exports increased significantly four years ago, that domestic growth was only at lean 1.2 percent. The positive external development brings no sufficient impetus to the domestic economy\”explains Nadolski.
