If Nothing is Achieved – Who Pays for the Brexit?
ZBW, Intereconomics, Vol. 53, No. 5, 2018, pp. 274–280
Germany’s labour market faces substantial challenges caused by demographic change in the next decade. Looking back over the last 10 years we observe a key role regarding of a successful labour market integration leading to higher employment rates and fostering economic growth.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
