Corona-Krise und Klimawandel unterscheiden sich hinsichtlich der individuell gefühlten Betroffenheit und der Bereitschaft der Menschen, zur Lösung des Problems auf Gewohntes zu verzichten. Gemeinsam haben beide Herausforderungen, dass bessere technologische Lösungen notwendig sind, um hohe volkswirtschaftliche Kosten zu vermeiden.

Deposits, loans and other assets surged because clients hoarded liquidity. Banks’ capital ratios fell only somewhat and they remain well capitalised. Banks in Europe may have faced similar trends overall but will probably have benefited less from the supportive trading environment and suffered more from declining capital ratios. They are also handicapped by their much lower starting level in terms of profitability. [mehr]
