Merkel’s cabinet in consultation with the PMs of the 16 federal states agreed to partially lift containment measures but curbing health risks clearly dominated economic risks of a longer shutdown. The decisions taken will be reviewed on a bi-weekly basis with the next meeting of political leaders on April 30. A European coordination of (national) exit strategies is important for Germany given its strong economic interlinkages with other member states. [mehr]

The coronavirus pandemic has struck the German mechanical engineering sector at an already difficult time. Since 2019 at the latest, mechanical engineering firms have been feeling the effects of a realignment in the industry, particularly as German automobile manufacturers shift towards electric mobility. On top of that, there was the possibility of unusual expenses due to the potential discontinuation of deliveries from China amid ongoing trade conflicts. Production may decline by 25% or more in 2020 as a result of the coronavirus. [mehr]

Die Corona-Pandemie trifft den deutschen Maschinenbau in einer ohnehin schwierigen Zeit. Spätestens seit 2019 belastet die Maschinenbauer die Neuausrichtung insbesondere der deutschen Automobilindustrie in Richtung Elektromobilität. Hinzu kamen denkbare Sonderbelastungen durch den möglichen Wegfall von Zulieferungen aus China (Stichwort: Handelskonflikt). Infolge von Corona ist 2020 ein Produktionsrückgang von über 25% möglich.

Die Corona-Krise würfelt auch die Tagesordnung in der Immobilienwirtschaft durcheinander. Marc Schattenberg spricht in unserem neuen Podzept über die aktuellen Entwicklungen in den unterschiedlichen Immobilienklassen. Aufgrund des erwarteten Wirtschaftseinbruchs ist die Unsicherheit im Büromarkt besonders hoch. Hinzu kommt, dass viele Haushalte erst einmal in einen „Krisenmodus“ schalten und die Job- und Existenzsicherung in den Vordergrund rücken werden. So dürfte die Bereitschaft umzuziehen, zu bauen und damit die Wohnungsnachfrage erst einmal gedämpft werden. Zudem könnten die Fertigstellungen von Wohnimmobilien kurzfristig unter krisenbedingten Lieferengpässen leiden. [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]

We’ve witnessed an immense human tragedy as the covid-19 virus has spread around the globe. Amidst the awful numbers of people who have succumbed to the disease, we’re also now witnessing an incredibly painful economic downturn. In a new podcast episode where we look at the data, ten million Americans have made jobless claims over the last two weeks.

The corona pandemic and the related travel restrictions and lockdowns have caused both domestic and cross-border travel to collapse. All types of transport are affected. If the lockdowns remain in place over the summer months, traditional tourist destinations, for example on the Mediterranean, will suffer major economic losses. [mehr]
