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.

EZB: Vom Inflationsanstieg (noch) unbeeindruckt
Abstract: Die in den letzten Monaten deutlich gestiegenen (Headline)-Inflationsraten haben zum Wiederaufflammen der Diskussionen über das EZB-Anleihekaufprogramm geführt. Zuletzt legten auch die deutschen Erzeugerpreise deutlich zu. Im Dezember 2016 erhöhten sich die Preise von Metallen (+5% gg. Vorjahresmonat) und Energie (+10%) besonders dynamisch, während der Rest (Gewicht 83,6%) aber weiterhin keinerlei Inflationsdruck zeigt.

Germany: CDU & CSU team up to clip Schulz' rise
Abstract: At a meeting in Munich, the executive committees of the CDU and the CSU have largely demonstrated unanimity and the willingness to close the ranks behind Chancellor Merkel in the imminent election campaign after months of tension over Merkel’s refugee policy. The meeting is meant as the start signal of a joint campaign which aims at keeping Chancellor Merkel in office and preventing a “left republic”, the term the CSU uses to describe a coalition among the SPD, the Left and the Greens. As an anchor for a common campaign a joint election platform shall be launched. The platform is likely to focus on external and internal security, (income) tax reductions, support for families, prosperity and jobs and European policy. The Bavarian CSU, however, will stick to its demand for an upper limit on migration of 200,000 p.a. as a major element of its own complementary platform for Bavaria, weakening the signal of unanimity at a time when the SPD is surging in polls.

Ausblick Deutschland: Risiken für den Export – trotz unterstützender EZB
Abstract: Das deutsche BIP-Wachstum in 2016 erhöhte sich im Vergleich zu den beiden Vorjahren weiter (1,9% gg. Vj. nach 1,7%, bzw. 1,6%). Einige temporäre Faktoren (Flüchtlingszustrom, geringe Inflation, Stärke des Arbeitsmarktes) sorgten für eine äußerst robuste Binnenwirtschaft. Die Verlangsamung der Exporte belastet dagegen die privaten Ausrüstungsinvestitionen. Etwa die Hälfte des BIP-Wachstums ging auf Staatsausgaben zurück. Insgesamt deckte sich die Entwicklung weitgehend mit unseren Erwartungen und verändert daher unseren Ausblick auf 2017 nicht: Da einige günstige Faktoren abklingen und ein Arbeitstageeffekt dämpft, dürfte sich das BIP-Wachstum in 2017 auf 1,1% abschwächen. Jüngste Stimmungsindikatoren signalisieren gewisse Aufwärtsrisiken für unsere Konjunkturprognose. Weitere Themen:„Border Adjustment Tax“: Was ist das und was bedeutet es für deutsche Unternehmen? EZB: Geduld, Transparenz und Kerninflation.

Focus Germany: New SPD frontrunner unlikely to defeat Merkel
Abstract: 2016 GDP growth picked up further relative to the previous two years (1.9% vs. 1.7%). Growth was strongly tilted towards consumption thanks to several tailwinds (refugee crisis, low inflation, labour market strength), while slowing exports weighed on private equipment investment: With several tailwinds fading and a strong workday effect weighing, GDP growth looks set to slow to 1.1% in 2017. Recent sentiment indicators herald some upside risks for the current quarter. However, the 2.3 point drop in the expectations component of the January ifo index seems to corroborate our more cautious stance. In an unexpected turn, SPD party leader Gabriel announced that he would not run against Angela Merkel. Instead Martin Schulz, the former president of the European Parliament, will be the party’s frontrunner. Mr. Schulz’s unexpected nomination is likely to push the SPD’s campaign for the federal election on September 24 but unlikely to derail Merkel.

Uncertainty is slowing capital expenditure
Abstract: In view of the pronounced economic and (geo)political uncertainties and the weak starting level, (private-sector) equipment investment in Germany is likely to decrease in 2017 despite a respectable level of capacity utilisation. The interplay of multiple factors is currently causing a high level of uncertainty: the potentially serious impact on Germany in the event of the uncertainties materialising, the continued high number of simultaneous uncertainties, the complexity of many capital expenditure decisions and the lack of confidence in politicians (and/or their ability to come up with solutions). We will present several uncertainty indicators based on news, surveys and financial markets data that provide a way of quantifying the uncertainty.

Coping with mixed feelings: What future for European trade policy?
Abstract: It is hard to overstate the importance of trade policy for Europe. The EU28 is the largest trading bloc, the top trading partner for about 80 countries worldwide and ranks 1st for in- and outbound investment. The EU’s free trade agreements (FTAs) vary substantially, depending on partners and policy priorities. “New generation trade agreements” go beyond traditional tariff reductions, including issues like services trade, intellectual property or investment. EU agreements to foster trade (and investment), however, have sparked mixed feelings more recently given the backlash against globalisation as well as EU-internal controversies over the power to strike such deals. Yet, the EU’s ability to conclude trade deals is also contingent on political support. Rising scepticism about globalisation means, that (potential) distributional effects of FTAs and their (potential) interaction with national legislation, is going to feature more prominently throughout negotiations and in the public debate.

Unsicherheit bremst Investitionen aus
Abstract: Aufgrund der ausgeprägten wirtschaftlichen und (geo-)politischen Unsicherheit und des schwachen Startniveaus dürften die (privaten) Ausrüstungsinvestitionen in Deutschland 2017 sinken trotz insgesamt ordentlich ausgelasteter Kapazitäten der Unternehmen. Ein Zusammenspiel mehrerer Aspekte sorgt derzeit für das hohe Unsicherheitsniveau: die potenziell gravierenden Auswirkungen auf Deutschland bei Eintritt der Unsicherheiten, die anhaltend hohe Zahl gleichzeitiger Unsicherheiten, die Komplexität vieler Investitionsentscheidungen sowie der Mangel an Vertrauen in die (Lösungskompetenz der) Politik. Wir stellen eine Reihe von nachrichten-, umfrage- und finanzmarktbasierten Unsicherheitsindikatoren vor, die eine ansatzweise Quantifizierung der Unsicherheit erlauben, und geben einen Ausblick auf die unseres Erachtens wichtigsten Unsicherheiten.

Bargeld, Freiheit und Verbrechen: Bargeld in der digitalen Welt
Abstract: Obwohl der Zahlungsverkehr zunehmend digital wird, wächst in Europa die Nachfrage nach Bargeld. Der Euro-Bargeldumlauf ist mittlerweile auf 1,1 Billionen Euro gestiegen – eine Verdreifachung im Vergleich zu 2003. Bargeld setzt der Macht der Zentralbanken Grenzen, es gewährleistet Datenschutz und kann somit dazu beitragen, Bürgerrechte zu sichern. Andererseits geht eine intensive Nutzung von Bargeld häufig mit einer stärkeren Schattenwirtschaft einher. Der Wechsel zu bargeldlosen Zahlungen scheint dagegen zu einem Anstieg des Kartenbetrugs zu führen.
