dc.description.abstractCatching-up of East German productivity to West German levels hascompletely faded out sinde the mid 1990s. The remaining productivity gapcannot be attributed to an inferior capital endowment. Instead, it appears tobe the result of an inappropriate design of industrial policy which fosteredthe specialization of East German industry on capital intesive smoke-stackindustries. These industries are absorbing a large share of factor inputs,whereas their contribution to aggregate output is rather limited. East Germanywill have to face, therefore, another wave of painful structural adjustmentwhen public subsidies will further be reduced.-
