The German government has responded quickly and decisively to the economic fallout from the corona pandemic. Altogether, Germany’s anti-crisis measures – consisting of extra spending, guarantees and loan/participation programs – sum up to an astronomic value of around EUR 1.9 tr (well above 50% of GDP in 2019). This gives the government huge scope to fight the pandemic and economic crisis. In this note we try to quantify Germany’s fiscal costs from the corona crisis. [mehr]

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]

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.

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-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]
