The German economy in May 2022 – optimism and hope warranted?

After the reality of the war in Ukraine (for regular updates, cf. here, in German) has set-in in Germany, making for a mixed (economic) bag in April (cf. here) the question is how the German economy fared in May 2022. So, let’s take a closer look:

The German economy in April 2022 – slow recognition

In April 2022 the war in Ukraine (for regular updates, cf. here, in German) was also dominating the economic headlines in Germany, while Corona slowly faded from the front pages. After the reality of the war and other factors hindering a swift ecomic upturn had seemingly set in with the German economy in March 2022 (here), the question is how it fared in April. So, let’s take a closer look:

The German economy in March 2022 – Reality is setting in

The war of Russia against Ukraine dominates the headlines for over a month now (cf. here for the current situations update, in German). And while other nations and the largest parts of Europe had their respective „freedom day“ a while ago, Germany was still fighting its own (unwinable) war against Corona – until the envisioned vaccination-obligation came crushingly down in the German parliament (as to the current German corona-status, cf. here, in German). The war as well as the (retarded) liberation from Corona will surely take a large toll on the German economy in the long run. In February (here), though, the German economy did not look too bad. But, hey, let’s take a look at immediate consequences, if any:

The German economy in February 2022 – like Wile E. Coyote?

Although the case-numbers of people infected with corona were actually increasing in February (cf. here), this issue was put on a backburner even before Russian troups actually started their attack against the Ukraine on 24 February 2022. Hence, even if it was clear that there would be no „freedom day“ as such, even Germany was opening up again. But then, Russia shocked the world. The consequences for the German economy are still not clear. So, hey, let’s take a look at the immediate pre-war status of the German economy:

The German economy in January 2022 – from „distressed“​ to „war“​?

The short-term outlook for 2022 was not look to bad at the end of last month, given the „hard KPIs“ of orders, production and exports at the end of December 2021 (here). Also, the „end“ of the pandemic indeed begins to materialise. However, rising inflation and a potentially escalating conflict in the Ukrainian might serve as a party crusher. But hey, let’s take a more detailed view on the January 2022 figures before jumping to conclusions:

The German economy in December 2021 – „distressed“​ winter

After there were more questionmarks to the German economy than positive outlooks in November 2021 (here), the ongoing question is, whether it gets better in the foreseeable future. To answer that question, let’s take a more detailed view on the December figures to answer that question:

Morning Briefing – 5. November 2021 – auch „dette is Barlin“!

Guten Morgen,

Wie ich bei der Zusammenstellung dieses Posts feststellte, habe ich aus Versehen eine weitere Rubrik, nämlich „dette is Barlin“ kreiert, die schon gar nicht mehr so klein ist (zum Thread hier) und dabei habe ich schon so einige Facetten der Stadt ausgeleuchtet. Nachdem heute mal wieder Freitach is und ich Sie, meiner verehrten Leserinnen und Leser, auch diese Woche wieder mit einigen Unsäglichkeiten genervt haben dürfte (mit Clan-Kriminalität (hier), Minority Report (hier), Bastardökonomie (hier) und N26 (hier)) und in letzter Zeit meine eigene Wahlheimat kampfsportmäßig gebashed habe (zuletzt hier), heute mal ein paar positive (Lebens-)Zeichen aus der Hauptstadt des Wahnsinns – sprich, es gibt sie auch hier noch, die guten Nachrichten (zuletzt hier):
