Ausblick Deutschland: Öffentliche Investitionen und Wohnungsbau ziehen an
Abstract: Öffentliche Investitionen: Mehr in der Pipeline. In der internationalen Debatte werden öffentliche Investitionen vielfach als nützlicher Hebel für eine höhere Binnennachfrage gesehen. Trotz internationaler Kritik und politischer Willensbekundung sind die öffentlichen Investitionen in Deutschland in den letzten zwei Jahren nur moderat gestiegen. In den kommenden Jahren dürften die öffentlichen Investitionen jedoch spürbar zulegen.

Focus Germany: Investment: Public, residential – gradually picking up
Abstract: In international debate public investment is often regarded as a useful lever for promoting higher domestic demand. Despite international criticism and political declarations of intent, public investment in Germany has only increased moderately over the past two years and has remained average, at best, on an international scale. In the coming years, however, public investment is expected to grow significantly. The current investment plans for the federal budget are 40% higher than those adopted in 2013. Public contracts for the construction industry in 2016 were between 15 and 27% above the average of the previous 10 years. The excellent state of the public finances at the various government levels also supports the prospect of increasing investment growth. However, severe capacity shortages in the construction industry are likely to mean that the high demand for investment will not quickly lead to an increase in construction activity.

Are Europeans facing an identity crisis?
Abstract: In the current debate about the future of the EU, politicians as well as the media are warning of a tendency by member states to shift their focus back to their own national interests and of a subsequent loss of significance of the EU. Are policymakers reacting to actual changes in the attitudes of EU citizens or is there an underlying perception issue here?

Identitätskrise der Europäer?
Abstract: In der aktuellen Debatte um die Zukunft der EU warnen Politiker ebenso wie Medien vor dem Rückfall der Mitgliedstaaten in „Nationalstaaterei“ und einem damit verbundenen Bedeutungsverlust der EU. Reagiert die Politik damit auf tatsächlich veränderte Einstellungen der EU-Bürger oder gibt es hier eher ein Wahrnehmungsproblem?

The future of the EU: Which road to take?
Abstract: The discussion about the future of the EU27 is on. To frame the debate, the European Commission issued a White Paper in early March, including five scenarios to outline what the EU could look like in 2025. There is more than “more or less integration”. In fact, the two scenarios attracting most attention are ideas for a Union with stronger emphasis on differentiated integration and an option trying to reconcile calls for a leaner EU with ambition for integration on key issues. Ideas about multi-speed integration in particular are a sensitive topic among member states. The White Paper only marked the start. There are five further papers planned for Q2 to provide more detail for different policy areas. From a market perspective, the paper fleshing out ideas for the future of EMU to be published towards the end of May should be the key one to watch.

Who is afraid of populists?
Abstract: With developments in the UK and the US, populism was a key theme in 2016. But does the perception of 2016 as “the year of the populists” really fit for Europe? A closer look suggests that while populism was an omnipresent theme in public discourse, support for populist parties in polls rather remained stable and elections did not translate into outright populist wins. The rise of populist parties has however been a multi-year trend. Populists can affect national politics in various ways. One possible effect is that forming a government (coalition) often gets more complicated and time-consuming and results in more fragile governments. Another is populists’ potential impact on policy discussions’ style and content. Pursuing policies with long-term benefits but which are often not instantly popular becomes more difficult ‒ both at the national and the European level.

Focus Germany: Growth and inflation leave ECB still unfazed
Abstract: At face value the pick-up of GDP growth at the end of 2016 (Q4: +0.4% qoq vs. +0.1% prev.) seems to fit with improving sentiment. However, given its composition we would argue that underlying growth was weaker than the headline suggests. We stick to our below consensus GDP forecast for 2017 (1.1%) and only make cosmetic changes in the details. We are raising our inflation forecast slightly overall for 2017, from 1.6% to 1.7%, compared with only 0.5% in 2016. We still expect core inflation to be only slightly above 1% in 2017. If the signs of global price increases are confirmed, then we could in fact see a more pronounced increase in core inflation, particularly if rising prices translate into second-round effects when wage negotiations are conducted in 2018.

Ausblick Deutschland: Wachstum und Inflation dürften EZB noch kalt lassen
Abstract: Auf den ersten Blick scheint das anziehende BIP-Wachstum zum Jahresende 2016 (Q4: +0,4% gg. Vq.; zuvor: +0,1%) konsistent mit den angestiegenen Konjunkturindikatoren. Allerdings zeigt die Zusammensetzung des BIP-Wachstums eine eher schwächere zugrundeliegende Dynamik. Wir behalten deshalb unsere unter dem Konsens liegende BIP-Prognose von 1,1% für das Jahr 2017 bei. Unsere Inflationsprognose für 2017 heben wir insgesamt minimal an auf 1,7% von 1,6% nach nur 0,5% in 2016. Dabei erwarten wir die Kerninflation in 2017 weiter bei gut 1%. Sollten sich die Anzeichen für den globalen Preisauftrieb bestätigen, könnte die Kerninflation aber deutlicher zulegen, insbesondere wenn in 2018 anziehende Preise Zweitrundeneffekte bei den Lohnverhandlungen nach sich ziehen sollten. Wir erwarten weiterhin, dass die EZB erst im September Aussagen zum „Tapering“ treffen wird, die dann ab Januar 2018 umgesetzt werden. Von der Pressekonferenz erwarten wir Hinweise in Richtung eines langsamen und graduellen Übergangs zu einer weniger expansiven Geldpolitik.

ECB unimpressed by the rise in inflation – for now
Abstract: The headline inflation rates, which have increased substantially in recent months, have rekindled the debate surrounding the ECB's bond-buying programme. German producer prices have also risen sharply in recent times. In December 2016, the prices of metal (up by 5% on December 2015) and energy (up by 10%) increased particularly sharply. Nevertheless, the remaining inputs (weighting: 83.6%) continued to show no inflationary pressure at all.

Synthetic securitisation: Making a silent comeback
Abstract: Securitisation markets have returned to policymakers’ attention recently, only this time as a hoped-for panacea to anaemic lending in Europe rather than a culprit for the financial crisis. To date, the focus is largely on true-sale securitisation. Yet synthetic securitisation has notable potential as well, especially for SME lending. Synthetic securitisation saw mixed trends in recent years. 1) Complex arbitrage deals have almost disappeared. 2) Balance sheet synthetic deals have surged to an issuance volume of EUR 94 bn in 2016. Transactions have become mostly private, yet are now much less complex and of robust asset quality. A firm inclusion of balance sheet deals in the evolving framework for simple, transparent and standardised (STS) securitisations would be sensible and could well contribute to a recovery in lending in Europe.
