After all these questionmarks, doubts and armageddon-foresights (cf. for February here) now that: Hope! First, we all survived the 15th of March 2017 – despite the doomsday-sayers, neither the debt-ceiling nor the rate-hike in the US nor the Dutch elections could derail the „economic train“ which seems to get momentum even beyond Germany now. But, as always, I am getting ahead of myself. So, let’s see what’s behind the (German) curtain for this month: „The German Economy in March 2017 – silver lining ahead“ weiterlesen

August remained a relatively quiet month – especially in comparison to June and July. The developments of the previous months (and the season) only took a small toll on the current German economy. However, the outlook has deteriorated. „German economy August 2016: Seasonal slowdown or new trend?“ weiterlesen

Amid Brexit, the Turkish Coup and now also terrorist attacks on its soil, the German economy overall remains strong in July 2016: „German economy July 2016: The saga continues, but not so glossy after all“ weiterlesen

Uhrenverkäufe als Konjunkturindikator?

Ich versuche mich ja seit einiger Zeit an der Deutung aller möglichen Wirtschaftsindikatoren als Barometer für die wirtschaftliche Entwicklung. Ein Schwerpunkt dabei sind die Frachtraten-Indizes, wie etwa der schon mehrfach besprochene Baltic Dry Index. Nach neuesten Meldungen könnte man aber auch über einen weitern Indikator nachdenken: den der Uhrenverkäufe. „Uhrenverkäufe als Konjunkturindikator?“ weiterlesen

Another proof that Brexit was a „black swan“: IFO-business climate index climbs again

Was die Diskussion über die wirtschaftliche Entwicklung angeht, gehe ich eher von einer schockartigen Entwicklung, denn von einer normalen Rezession aus (die sich in den USA aber anbahnt; s. auch das von mir empfohlene Buch „Tipping Point“). Ein derartiger Schock könnte durch ein Ereignis, wie bei der Deutschen Bank im Februar ausgelöst werden, über dass ich mich auch schon mal ausgelassen habe. „Tipping Point“ weiterlesen

Baltic Dry Index – really a sign for the coming bust?

08.02.16 – Today, the Baltic Dry Index (BDIY) stands at 293 points – coming from its all-time high of 11,793 points on 20 May 2008 and from its “last-time high” of 2,330 points on 13 December 2014. Currently it seems that this index is in line with the downward movement of other indicators, like commodities, bonds, etc. However, does this correlative movement make the BDIY really a reliable (leading) crisis indicator? „Baltic Dry Index – really a sign for the coming bust?“ weiterlesen
