Die deutsche Konjunktur lahmt, insbesondere die jüngsten Industriedaten bestätigen die Rezession über das Winterhalbjahr. In China nehmen jüngst die Deflationssorgen zu. Dagegen gibt es positive Neuigkeiten aus den USA. Dort wird ein Soft Landing wahrscheinlicher und das kräftige Wachstum von über 2% wird unserer Prognose nach beibehalten. Auch in Europa gibt es positive Entwicklungen. So fallen in vielen Südländern die Arbeitslosenraten strukturell. Hält dieser Trend an, könnten in den nächsten Jahren immer mehr Länder und schließlich die Eurozone und die EU insgesamt Vollbeschäftigung erreichen. [mehr]

Viele Jahrzehnte lang gab es in Deutschland und in den USA Zeiten geteilter wirtschaftlicher Unsicherheit. Nachrichtenbasierte Unsicherheitsindizes für die USA und Deutschland waren stark korreliert. Von den USA ausgehende Schocks wie der 11. September 2001 oder die Finanzkrise lösten in Deutschland eine erhöhte politische Unsicherheit aus. Und Schocks, die von Europa ausgingen – die Staatsschuldenkrise oder der Brexit – erhöhten die Unsicherheit in beiden Volkswirtschaften. Im Vergleich zu solchen externen Schocks verursachten selbst wichtige wirtschaftspolitische Debatten in Deutschland, wie die Agenda-Reformen Mitte der 2000er Jahre, wenig Unsicherheit. [mehr]

The German government this week agreed on the main features of a new power plant strategy. It is intended to address the problem that there will continue to be phases in the future when weather-dependent renewable energies are unable to cover the entire demand for electricity. Back-up power plants with base load capability are currently a necessary building block of an energy strategy based on renewables. German government has decided to bank on hydrogen-ready gas-fired power plants. The government aims to establish a new capacity mechanism by 2028 whereby power plant operators are remunerated for providing secured capacity via tenders. In a first step, 10 gigawatts (GW) of capacity are to be put out to tender in the short term (4 x 2.5 GW). This corresponds to around 20 power plant units. Pending further details, we believe that these plans for a capacity market are a positive development. In our view, it promises greater investment and thus energy security than the alternative of relying on market incentives, i.e., electricity prices remaining temporarily high enough in future to be able to operate such power plants profitably even at low capacity utilisation. One of the major challenges of the future is to obtain sufficient (green) hydrogen for the operation of power plants and industrial processes. [mehr]

Risk capital markets are key to financing the innovations needed for the twin transition. They spot promising startup companies and provide them with funding to realise their growth potential. Venture capital (VC) investment volumes in the EU have increased almost fivefold over the past decade. However, the market remains much smaller in Europe than in the US, making it more difficult for young European firms than their US peers to scale up. To grow further, VC firms in the EU need not only to overcome the current market slump, but also to address structural issues related to fundraising, scaling up investments, and the exit environment.

Germany lags behind in digitalization. E-Government is a case in point. Historically, public projects are often based on complex coordination across many various entities. We think, switching from this traditional approach to a clear central governance is essential to implement a public cloud, to digitalize registers and offer digital services for citizens and businesses. Interestingly, Bavaria outperforms and seems to have a more central approach than other Länder. [mehr]
