The Dependence of Individual Industries on China

Berthold Busch / Jürgen Matthes / Samina Sultan

The import and export dependency of German manufacturing branches on China at the intermediate input level is calculated here by evaluating the international input-output tables of FIGARO (Full International and Global Accounts for Research in Input-Output Analysis), which are provided by Eurostat with data as of 2020. On the import side, FIGARO data provide a better picture of the import dependency of industrial branches than the usual foreign trade statistics, because the latter also include imports from China that go into final demand here.

EU Enlargement? Alternative concepts to full membership

Berthold Busch / Samina Sultan

Debate on whether the European Union (EU) should accept new members has recently gained momentum. In June 2022, just months after Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, the European Council granted both the latter nation and the Republic of Moldova the status of candidate country, and Georgia the status of potential candidate.

Who finances the EU?: Net contributors and net recipients in the EU

Berthold Busch / Björn Kauder / Samina Sultan

The European Union finances its budget largely from contributions by the Member States. Since, in turn, substantial payments are made in the Member States via the expenditures of the EU budget, this results in net positions for the individual countries vis-à-vis the EU budget.

Single Market Emergency Instrument: An instrument with pitfalls

Samina Sultan / Christian Rusche / Berthold Busch / Hubertus Bardt

In reaction to recent disruptions concerning the Single Market, the European Commission proposed an Emergency Instrument to maintain the proper functioning of the Single Market and ensure the supply and distribution of goods and services. It provides for far-reaching measures. The dirigiste interventions in the market it allows, are to be critically questioned, while better coordination and exchange of information between the member states could be an added value of the SMEI.

Single Market Emergency Instrument – An instrument with pitfalls

Hubertus Bardt / Berthold Busch / Christian Rusche / Samina Sultan

The Single Market is one of the most important achievements of the European Union (EU) and it contributes significantly to economic welfare. In fact, most of the international trade of the Member States takes place in the Single Market.
