The German economy in April 2021 – cautious optimism warranted

To me, the March ’21 figures implied that – given the then stark rising corona-figures – the German economy was rather „walking on egg-shells“ fearing another crash due to the ongoing and soon to be hardened lockdown (cf. here). However, there were signs of hope. Now let’s take a more detailed view into the German economy for April 2021 to see if this hope was indeed warranted:

The German economy in March 2021 – walking on egg shells?

After the February figures presented a mixed picture while discussions on a „serious“ lockdown alienated the economy (here) the question was how the German economy would fare in March 2021. Not too bad, but, hey, let’s take a more detailed view into the German economy:

The German economy in February 2021 – Lockdown 3.0 looms…

After not too bad of a start into the year (here) hopes were (and are still) high that the German economy would have a a decent start into the year. However, as lockdown 3.0 looms (did we even get out of „2.0“?), are there now clouds appearing on the economy’s horizon? For that let’s take a more detailed view into the German economy:

The German economy in December 2020 – the year ends better than anticipated

After November showed that the German economy would get through the crisis in a „W“-shape at best (cf. here), it will be interesting to look into the December figures in order to assess the path ahead. But, let’s look into the German economy in some more detail:

The German economy in November 2020 – Merry W-shape recovery to all!


Before the Lockdown 2.0, the German German economy – after bottoming out in May (cf. here) – rebounded in June (cf. here), July (cf. here) and August (here) – and somewhat climaxed in September 2020 (here) –
– as proven with the October figures (here) . The hard lockdown seems to have taken a toll at the German economy already in November 2020. But, let’s look into the German economy in some more detail:

The German economy in October 2020 – Lockdown 2.0

Before the Lockdown 2.0, the German German economy – after bottoming out in May (cf. here) – rebounded in June (cf. here), July (cf. here) and August (here) – and somewhat climaxed in September 2020 (here). The question, hence, is whether in anticipation of the new Lockdown in Germany (which finally came into force only on 2 November 2020 but was heavily discussed since mid-October) already put a break on the rising economy in October. So, let’s look into the German economy in some more detail:

The German economy in September 2020 – climax?

Again, unfortunately, close to the eleventh hour of October I am able to review the fate of the German economy in September. And, again, the German German economy – after bottoming out in May (cf. here) – started its rebound in June (cf. here), the rebound gaining momentum in July (cf. here), and August (here), and continued its upward trend in September 2020. But, hey, let’s look into the German economy in some more detail:

The German economy in August 2020 – licking its wounds

Literally at the eleventh hour of September I got to finish my review of the German economy in August – rather for purposes of chronology than actual information. Still it is a worthwhile look to behold, the German German economy – after bottoming out in May (cf. here) – started its rebound in June (cf. here), the rebound gaining momentum in July (cf. here), August figures overall seem to indicate a further strengthening of this trend.
