The coalition agreement between the CDU/CSU and the SPD contains the first steps towards an expansion in public investment in education and child care, housing and digital infrastructure. Additional investments in these three core area are to be considered a plus from an economic and social point of view, but the agreed upon financing volume is too small in certain areas. In this article, a more ambitious investment agenda is developed that permanently satisfies the public investment needs in Germany. A simulation analysis shows that the proposed investment agenda pays off for everybody in the long run.
