The German economy in December 2022 – not so bad after all!?!

The war in Ukraine was still raging, but even in Germany Corona became old news as 2022 drew to a close. Hence, the hope which came up in October already as to the fate of the German economy (here) stabilised in November (here) and got even better at the end of one of the most disturbing years I personally encountered in my not so short life-span. But, hey, let’s take a closer look on how the German economy fared in December 2022:

The German economy in November 2022 – have we really seen the bottom?

The war in Ukraine is still ongoin though there wasn’t too much actual movement throughout the month – probably due to Rasputitsa(for regular updates, cf. here, in German). The hope which came up last month as to the fate of the German economy (here) seems to somewhat stabilise now albeit on a low level. So, hey, let’s take a closer look on how the German economy fared in November 2022:

Fog of War – 19. Dezember 2022 – Tag 299

Nach dem „Totalausfall“ des deutschen Schützenpanzers Puma (hier, nicht meine Worte, sondern die des Gen von Butlar) könnte ich ja jetzt in einen ähnlichen Rant verfallen, wie neulich, als wir feststellen konnten, das die Bundeswehr acht Monate nach Beginn des Krieges in der UKR noch nicht mal Munition nachgeordert hatte (hier). Könnte ich. Mir geht aber angesichts des neuerlichen Desasters eigentlich nur noch „die Lage ist hoffnungslos, aber nicht ernst.“ durch den Kopf.

Oha, in Deutschland geht es nicht nur im BMVg (mein Post gestern, hier) ordentlich ab – die „Reichsbürger“- Bewegung scheint ja durchaus nicht nur eine Truppe rüstiger Stammtischredner zu sein (hier). Scheinbar auch wieder (ex-)Bundeswehrsoldaten dabei. Nicht gut.

The German economy in October 2022 – things are never as bad as they seem, hopefully

While the war at the eastern and southern front is (not very much but still) progressing in favour of Ukraine, Russia continued its attacks on civil infrastructure unabated (for regular updates, cf. here, in German). After hope for the German economy was (thus) already in short supply in July (cf. here), everything seemed to be in dire straits in August (here) and despair was brewing in September (here), it might be that things won’t indeed turn out as bad as originally thought, at least some hope came up in the course of the month. But, hey, let’s take a closer look on how the German economy fared in October 2022:

The German economy in September 2022 – despair is brewing

While the war at the eastern and southern front is still very much progressing in favour of the Ukraine, Russia, under the leadership of Mr. Putin has – seemingly over recognising that a military victory is not feasible – startet to destroy Ukraine’s civil infrastructure (for regular updates, cf. here, in German). Hope was already in short supply in July (cf. here) and everything seemed to be in dire straits in August (here). So, let’s take a closer look on how the German economy fared in September 2022:

Nachdem der Intimus von Herrn Scholz, Herr Wolfgang Schmidt, in der letzten Woche noch mal das wahre Gesicht der SPD zeigen konnte (hier), zeigt sich Herr Klingbeil nun reuig und gesteht, dass die SPD in den letzten Jahren Fehler im Umgang mit Russland begangen habe (hier). Nun ja. Ich erspare mir und uns mal die Kommentare, die mir so auf der Feder liegen. Wir haben was Besseres zu tun.

The German economy in August 2022 – dire straits?

The war in Ukraine is progressing very nicely – for the Ukraine, for the Russians not so much (for regular updates, cf. here, in German). Despite (or because?) of this development, hope was already in short supply in the last month (cf. here). Now, with our Ukrainian brothers (and sisters) in arms recovering lost ground, we seem to be in dire straits. But hey, let’s take a closer look:

The German economy in July 2022 – hope is in short supply now

The war in Ukraine currently sees a change of initiative – from Russia to Ukraine (for regular updates, cf. here, in German) which seem to validate the optimism Germany’s economy developed already in June 2022 (cf. here). Still, the question is whether this optimism is warranted – which I denied. So, let’s take a closer look:
