Bus/Financial - Economics / Operative Haushaltssalden der EU
English term or phrase: Satzverständnis
In meinem Text geht es um die Kritik an der Methode der operativen Nettosalden, die bei der Haushaltsplanung der EU angewendet wird.

Der vorstehende Satz lautet: "The Commission never publishes Operating budgetary balance calculations without first emphasising the caveat that this indicator is ill-suited as a measure of a Member State’s benefits of EU spending."

Jetzt folgen die beiden Sätze,von denen ich mir nicht sicher bin, ob ich sie richtig verstehe:
"These caveats are very significant. Firstly, the precise construction of Operating budgetary balances has properties that lead to misleading conclusions. For example, Operating budgetary balances are arithmetically constructed, and its own resource payments are artificially scaled to precisely equal the allocated expenditure, thus resulting in zero."
Übersetzungsvorschlag: "Diese Warnungen sind sehr ernst zu nehmen. Erstens ist die konkrete Berechnung der operativen Haushaltssalden so beschaffen, dass irreführende Schlussfolgerungen gezogen werden. Zum Beispiel werden die operativen Haushaltssalden rechnerisch aufgestellt, die Eigenmittelmittelzahlungen werden künstlich so skaliert, dass sie genau den aufteilbaren Ausgaben entsprechen und somit Null ergeben."

Der nachstehende Satz, das Resümee, lautet: "Hence, this indicator implicitly assumes that the distribution of benefits from EU spending follows the logic of a zero-sum game."
