It is getting quite boring to announce record after record in the German economy: From DAX to employment and from industrial output to ifo – record-highs everywhere. We Germans are not accustomed to such a lengthy period of record-growht. There are, however, not many pessimists left now who are willing to predict any sort of crisis. And I am currently at least not one of them. First, let’s look into the German economy with the help of several key indicators:  „The German Economy in October 2017 – on the rise“ weiterlesen

Morning Briefing – 26. September 2017 // Cyber-Crime // WP’s unter Feuer // IFO-Index fällt

Morning

Guten Morgen,

Die Folgen der Wahl werden spürbar: die AfD zerlegt sich gleich mal selber, die Geschlossenheit der SPD ist dahin, Rücktrittsforderungen gegen „Drehhofer“ werden laut, FDP und Grüne stellen Bedingungen für Jamaika – und die Kanzlerin? Ja, wo läuft sie denn? Zur SPD natürlich, das findet sie nämlich doof, dass die jetzt nicht mehr mitspielen wollen. In Anbetracht dieser Unübersichtlichkeit warnt Fuest erst mal vor Neuwahlen – weil die der Wirtschaft schaden würden. Also, der ganz normale Komödienstadel. Wir dürfen auf die Koalitionsverhandlungen gespannt sein… „Morning Briefing – 26. September 2017 // Cyber-Crime // WP’s unter Feuer // IFO-Index fällt“ weiterlesen

Although we will see in the following that not all but most indicators point to another record month of July (thereby topping June), there are at least some minor signs of trouble ahead – which still can be resolved easily, though. Hence, let’s take a deeper dive into the data:  „The German economy in July 2017 – Peak German Economy?“ weiterlesen

The German economy in June 2017 – can it get any better? Really?

With a view to the most recent figures and indices tracing the German economy this question should indeed be permitted. After May 2017 setting record after record (cf. here) the question is whether June topped it again: „The German economy in June 2017 – can it get any better? Really?“ weiterlesen

The German Economy in May 2017 – running really hot!

And indeed – at least in Germany – the train of economic growth kept rolling throughout May unabated (as hoped for at the end of March) – now reaching levels never seen before in ALL of the areas: „The German Economy in May 2017 – running really hot!“ weiterlesen

The German Economy in March 2017 – silver lining ahead

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

The German economy in November 2016 – Trump ante ports

Until 8 November the month began rather „ordinary“ and did not continue the rebound from September. Obviously, everybody was waiting for the outcome of the US Presidential elections. And then the unthinkable (at least from the viewpoint of the MSM) happened – Trump was voted President. And then, again, the unthinkable happened: stocks did not only NOT crash but – especially in the US – started a rally rarely seen. „The German economy in November 2016 – Trump ante ports“ weiterlesen

The German economy in October 2016 – rebound?

While in September the clouds hanging over the German economy rather indicated the end of the world („On the edge„) current October figures seem to indicate a moderate to strong rebound: „The German economy in October 2016 – rebound?“ weiterlesen

The question raised at the end of August („seasonal slowdown or new trend?„) might indeed be answered in the very near future – at least, if Deutsche Bank‘ shares contiue to plunge. But I am getting ahead of myself… „The German economy in September 2016 – on the edge“ weiterlesen

German economy August 2016: Seasonal slowdown or new trend?

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
