Brexit update: constitutional warfare

2. September 2019
Region:
The government will hold a Queen's Speech - an outline of the government's legislative agenda. The votes on the Queen's Speech will be held on the 21st and 22nd October, with amendments possible only on these days. Under this schedule, the UK Parliament has just under a week in early September followed by just over a week in late October to prevent a no deal outcome. In practical terms, this schedule limits the ability of MPs to take a legislative route to block a no deal Brexit. [mehr]

The EUR 750 bn recovery package agreed upon by EU leaders two weeks ago will be financed through EU borrowing while the EUR 1,074 bn budget for the next seven years mainly depends on EU members' direct contributions. For the Commission to tap markets, the own resources ceiling – i.e. the maximum amount that can be called per year to finance EU expenditure – will be temporarily increased from the current 1.2% to 2% of EU members’ GNI. The Council committed itself to reform the EU’s financing system and plans to introduce new own resources for early repayment of EU borrowing. The top priority at present is swift adoption of the budget and recovery fund to address the consequences of the pandemic over the coming years. Following agreement in the Council, the MFF 2021-2027 now requires the consent of the European Parliament, in an absolute-majority vote. The decision about own resources – EU borrowing, increased ceiling and new own resources – needs to be approved by all member states in accordance with their constitutional requirements (including approval by national parliaments). While we do not expect an overall blockage of the package by the European Parliament or member states, delays cannot be excluded. [mehr]

EU leaders finally reached what looked impossible at times: agreement on a EUR 1.074 trillion next seven-year EU budget as well as a EUR 750 bn European recovery fund, consisting of EUR 390 bn in grants and EUR 360 bn in loans. In order to engineer consensus, Council President Michel repeatedly adjusted (downsized) his original proposal to meet the demands of frugal members. The EUR 390 bn grants facility agreed is a significant cut compared to the EUR 500 bn called for by France and Germany, but the share of grants in the Recovery and Resilience Facility (RRF) was slightly increased to EUR 312.5 bn The Council meeting that lasted from Friday to Tuesday was the first in-person conference between EU leaders since the outbreak of the Corona pandemic and took place under heightened health precautions. In the end, leaders of 27 EU members managed to find a joint response to the unprecedented economic challenges posed by the COVID-19 crisis. [mehr]

„Gemeinsam. Europa wieder stark machen“, das ist die Devise der halbjährigen deutschen EU-Ratspräsidentschaft. In ihrer Podzept-Premiere beschreibt Barbara Böttcher, Teamleiterin Europapolitik bei Deutsche Bank Research, ob das angesichts der aktuellen Herausforderungen rund um die Corona-Pandemie, Brexit-Handelsgesprächen, Digitalisierungs-Defiziten und Klimasorgen ein realistisches Ziel ist. Und sie erklärt, warum Europa für sie – trotz allem – eine echte Herzensangelegenheit ist. [mehr]

The coronavirus recession results in large-scale balance sheet changes both at euro-area and US banks. At the peak of the slump, lending to companies and corporate deposits surged further, while lending to households was much less affected. Banks also strongly increased their funding from and liquidity buffers at central banks. Within the euro area, funding from the ECB rose particularly in Germany and France, but remains much more important in Italy and Spain. Purchases of government bonds by US banks were smaller and started later than in the EMU. Over the next couple of months, corporate loans and deposits may gradually come down both in the US and Europe. Banks’ liquidity reserves at central banks are set to decrease, while their government bond holdings are expected to rise considerably. [mehr]

In vielen Ländern wächst der Finanzierungsbedarf des Staates: Regierungen legen umfangreiche Konjunkturpakete auf, um dem von der Corona-Pandemie verursachten schweren Wirtschaftsabschwung entgegenzuwirken. Neben Zentralbanken finanzieren die Banken mehr als die Hälfte des Anstiegs der Ausgaben, was sich auf die Zusammensetzung ihrer Bilanzen auswirkt. [mehr]

Die Corona-Krise hat die europäischen Banken schon im ersten Quartal hart getroffen, sie haben diese aber bisher relativ gut überstanden. Weitere Belastungen sind allerdings mit Sicherheit zu erwarten. Während die Erträge und Kosten nur leicht sanken, schossen die Rückstellungen für Kreditausfälle in die Höhe und machten den Gewinn der Branche fast komplett zunichte. Die Kapitalquoten gingen im Quartalsvergleich zurück, jedoch weniger als befürchtet, da die Banken die Dividenden für 2019 gestrichen hatten. Das Bilanzsummenwachstum erreichte mit 10% gegenüber dem Jahresende einen neuen Rekord, was auf einen Anstieg der Unternehmenskredite, höhere Liquiditätsreserven bei den Zentralbanken und ein höheres Derivatevolumen zurückzuführen war.

Commission President von der Leyen presented the long anticipated Commission proposal for a EUR 750 bn European Recovery Instrument together with an upsized EU budget for the next seven years. The plan goes beyond the Franco-German proposal that surprised markets last week. It can be expected to cause heated debates in the European Council and meet fierce resistance from frugal EU members.

During March, the first month in which the coronavirus pandemic made itself felt in Europe, banks' balance sheets grew substantially. On the one hand, euro-area banks raised enormous amounts of liquidity from the ECB, other financial corporations and non-financial companies. On the other, they just kept a large part of that at the central bank or lent it to other banks and other financial corporations. In addition, banks extended markedly more credit to non-financial firms which likewise stacked up their liquidity buffers to prepare for weaker cash flows as a result of the looming massive recession. The crisis so far had no major impact on banks’ retail business and their holdings of government bonds. [mehr]

The press statement of European Council President Michel after yesterday’s video conference of EU leaders remained vague on the EU’s joint fiscal response to the COVID-19 crisis. EU leaders endorsed their earlier agreement on the EUR 540 bn package of safety nets and also agreed “to work towards establishing a recovery fund”, asking the Commission to rapidly prepare a proposal of what this requires. Interlinking the EU's recovery plan with the budget might add another layer of complexity but could also serve as a spur for rapid agreements on both matters. [mehr]

The banking industry in Europe is entering the corona recession with strong capital levels and ample liquidity, though still only moderate profitability. Revenues will come under substantial pressure this year, loan loss provisions will jump and net income will fall materially – many banks may well make losses. However, there is likewise massive support from the public sector, with governments propping up the real economy, central banks the financial markets and supervisors relaxing rules for banks. This should mitigate the hit. Nevertheless, the risks are profound and a prolonged shutdown could even trigger a renewed banking crisis. Enormous uncertainty regarding its depth and length notwithstanding, the current crisis may well turn out more severe than the macro-financial shock scenario underlying the latest European bank stress test. Its magnitude could possibly even exceed the financial crisis and the Great Recession. [mehr]

Um die Ausbreitung des Coronavirus einzudämmen, haben die EU-Regierungen den Grenzverkehr in den vergangenen Wochen in unterschiedlichem Umfang vorübergehend wieder eingeschränkt. Die Maßnahmen reichen von Grenzkontrollen bis hin zu Grenzschließungen. Dies hatte zuweilen ernsthafte Auswirkungen auf den Frachtverkehr; die Grenzkontrollen führten zu kilometerlangen Staus, wie etwa zwischen Polen und Deutschland. [mehr]

Aufgrund der Corona-Pandemie und der damit einhergehenden Reise- und Ausgangsbeschränkungen ist der Personenverkehr auf nationaler Ebene und grenzüberschreitend dramatisch eingebrochen; dies betrifft alle Verkehrsträger. Sollte dieser Zustand über die Sommermonate anhalten, drohen gerade den klassischen Tourismuszielen z.B. in der Mittelmeerregion heftige wirtschaftliche Einbußen. [mehr]
