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]

Lobende Worte findet Stefan Schneider, unser Chefvolkswirt für Deutschland, im neuen Podzept für das deutsche Krisenmanagement in der Corona-Pandemie. Doch was bedeutet Schneiders Lob und positive Zwischenfazit in Sachen Krisenbewältigung für unsere Volkswirtschaft? Vor allem: Bleibt es fürs laufende Jahr beim düsteren Ausblick von 9 Prozent?

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]

The German export sector has had to cope with numerous challenges over the last few years. These include “homemade” problems, above all in the auto industry, but also the shift in US trade policy. Climate change has become an increasingly important issue, too; in fact, it implies massive changes. That is why the long-term trend in many manufacturing sectors appeared unclear even ahead of the coronavirus pandemic. Now, COVID-19 has compounded already existing uncertainties. From our vantage point, a number of reasons support our hypothesis that continental value chains are likely to gain importance. [mehr]

Die deutsche Exportindustrie kämpfte die letzten Jahre mit vielen Herausforderungen. „Hausgemachte“ Probleme insbesondere im Autosektor gehörten hier ebenso dazu wie die Neuausrichtung der US-Handelspolitik. Auch die immer stärker in den Blickpunkt rückende Klimakrise implizierte massive Veränderungen. Entsprechend war die langfristige Ausrichtung vieler Sektoren des Verarbeitenden Gewerbes mit etlichen Fragezeichen versehen. Die Corona-Krise erhöht die Unsicherheit nun um ein Vielfaches. Wir denken, eine Reihe von Entwicklungen sprechen für unsere These, dass kontinentale Wertschöpfungsketten an Bedeutung gewinnen. [mehr]

Stuttgart baut weniger als andere Metropolen. Die Angebotsknappheit wird auch perspektivisch zumindest für einige Jahre bestehen bleiben. Positive Impulse von der Inbetriebnahme des neuen unterirdischen Hauptbahnhofs werden im aktuellen Jahrzehnt womöglich auch ausbleiben. Daher erwarten wir weitere Preissteigerungen. Die Mieten dagegen dürften nicht nur Corona-bedingt deutlich verhaltener zulegen. Die relativ hohen anfänglichen Mietrenditen dürften also weiter fallen. [mehr]
