In Reaktion auf die COVID-19-Krise hat die Regierung ein Paket an Gegenmaßnahmen für die Wirtschaft in einer Gesamthöhe von 38 Mrd. € zusammengestellt. In der vorliegenden Studie analysiert das WIFO anhand der Sonderbefragungen des WIFO-Konjunkturtests zeitnahe die Inanspruchnahme und Wirksamkeit der Instrumente. Die Analysen begleiten die Umsetzung und liefern erste Anhaltspunkte für eine Bewertung der staatlichen Gegenmaßnahmen.

Well before the recession of 2008-09, the successful socioeconomic regime of growth of the three decades after Word War II came to an end as the smooth matching among technological innovation, productivity growth, income distribution and aggregate demand increasingly broke down. However, a new virtuous regime is hardly emerging and growth of income and productivity remains sluggish especially in Europe. The project is meant to investigate the causes of the slowdown and to propose an integrated policy package able to sustain an inclusive and welfare-enhancing process of growth resilient to climate change and population aging. The project addresses the whole thread of the interaction among innovation, productivity, and growth in a world possibly undergoing a "IV Industrial Revolution", wherein globalisation exacerbated the diverging patterns of value distribution among countries and social groups. Together, it will thoroughly study the effects of monetary, fiscal and mission-oriented policies in stimulating productivity and output growth. The team comprises leading international scholars ranging from economics of innovation, industrial dynamics, econometrics, agent-based macroeconomics, and public governance. Crucially a group of National Statistical Offices will join the research, also developing new data and measurements. The policy recommendations will be grounded on solid micro, meso and macro analyses, always accounting for the feedbacks between Schumpeterian (supply side) and Keynesian (demand side) dynamics. The relevance and adequacy of the proposed policies will be continuously challenged by the interaction with a whole set of stakeholders belonging to European institutions, civil society, and business.

Der WIFO-Konjunkturtest ist eine monatliche Befragung von österreichischen Unternehmen zur Einschätzung ihrer wirtschaftlichen Lage. Ziel der Erhebung ist es, die aktuelle und bevorstehende Entwicklung der Konjunktur mit einem deutlichen Zeitvorsprung gegenüber der amtlichen Statistik zu erfassen. Im Rahmen des WIFO-Investitionstests werden frühzeitig Indikatoren zum Investitionsverhalten in Österreichs Sachgütererzeugung und Bauwirtschaft ermittelt.
