EU Growth Package Instead of Business Cycle Stimulus

EU growth package instead of business cycle stimulus

Matthias Diermeier / Florian Güldner / Markos Jung

The EU-27 suffered a hard, economic hit by the Covid-19 crisis. The EU Commission is now primarily trying to support Southern and Eastern European countries. The proposed 750 billion euro stimulus is not so much aimed at counteracting the economic corona crisis but should rather be understood as a long-term growth package – coinciding with the EU’s sluggish nature and supranational purpose.

If Nothing is Achieved: Who Pays for the Brexit?

Michael Hüther / Matthias Diermeier / Markos Jung / Andrew Bassilakis in Intereconomics

The United Kingdom will depart from the European Union in March 2019. Numerous open questions remain about details and conditions especially with regard to post-Brexit EU-UK trade relations. In case of a negotiation failure, a "hard Brexit" could cause considerably high costs on both sides of the Channel. In the short run, companies will be charged more than 15 billion euro as tariffs. In the long run, UK-EU trade could be reduced up to 50 percent.

It’s business models, stupid!

Matthias Diermeier / Michael Hüther / Markos Jung

In contrast to a massive current account deficit against China, the US runs a current account surplus with respect to the European Union. The US-EU surplus is largely driven by a positive service balance and primary incomes originating from US investments abroad. Services and primary incomes overcompensate the US goods trade deficit with the EU. Rather than representing a “rip–off”, the different balances reflect the economies’ different business models.

Economic crisis slows European convergence

Regional growth: Economic crisis slows European convergence

Matthias Diermeier / Markos Jung / Pekka Sagner

Up until the economic and financial crisis, economic conditions in the European regions had been converging. This process has come to a complete standstill in recent years due to lower growth in Eastern Europe and stagnation in Southern Europe.

The poorer regions are not catching up anymore

Convergence in Europe: The poorer regions are not catching up anymore

Before the economic crisis, European regions with low economic output per inhabitant grew faster than the wealthier ones. The living conditions on the continent became more similar. Since 2010, however, the process of catching-up has been stopped.
