Grounds for confidence or doubt

The youth unemployment in countries with dual training in the OECD comparison is very low. Depreciation of the euro, bankruptcy, inflation all these are horror scenarios currently, which dominate the public debate. The economic facts and yet they unfortunately often on the track.

The gloomy mood of the public contrasts the situation of the companies. For this, the future look much less sceptical. The unemployment rate and in May was at its lowest level in 14 years, and in the labour market, there are a lot more vacancies. For a reason, the innovation and internationality of the German company remains strong and is paying off, especially now. Nevertheless, success lies deeper.

Therefore, for the safety of the innovation the importance of tertiary education is emphasized, and indeed quite justified. The dual vocational training with their differentiated approaches to the world of work is a major explanation for the success of our industry. The success of the model reflects the very low youth unemployment among OECD countries declined only in Germany.

To counteract the lack of skilled workers, we have to play this level. For example, through hands-on training and a closer alignment of study and practice. In this way, will be facilitated the integration of problem groups in the labour market. We have just grounds for optimism as to doubt! Whether the end is approaching evil, remains our cause.

The sustainability gap

The sustainability gap of care is about 37 percent of GDP. The debt explodes in Germany this year is expected to reach about 75 percent of annual economic output. Nevertheless, this is just the tip of the iceberg. 01.01.1995 for Germany has been the long-term care as insurance and it is a time bomb. Even then, it was clear that the social contract is not up in the care.

That is the problem with all the predictions. We can make allowance for only what you know and do not take into account what you cannot know. Still I think it is better for the little that we know to be considered for predictions, rather than simply at random. Do you actually have a life insurance (endowment)? If so, why actually, but where you cannot be sure that paid in 2030, is what they have paid, plus interest?
