German defence policy: Towards a more integrated security framework
Abstract: Defence policy and defence expenditures have moved into the light of public attention ahead of September parliamentary elections, fuelled by US criticism of Europe’s NATO spending, the experience of the refugee crisis but also regained momentum for European integration. While NATO membership and EU defence integration is supported by the German public, a majority rejects an increase in the military budget. To reach NATO’s 2% of GDP target by 2024, defence expenditures would have to more than double within seven years. Mainstream parties agree that a more holistic security framework is required but they are divided on the details, in particular when it comes to the question on how much to spend for it.

Focus Germany: Cyclical boom no reason for fiscal complacency
Abstract: Forecast for German Q2 GDP lifted to 0.8%. Following recent strong soft and hard data, we have lifted our forecast for Q2 GDP from 0.6% qoq to 0.8% (Q1 0.6%). Private consumption should remain the major driver behind above potential growth. In H2 the recent strong appreciation of the EUR should leave its mark. Still, in July ifo export expectations stood just 1 point below their all-time high. This could be related to the stronger than expected recovery within the Eurozone as well as stronger demand from China. (Also in this issue: private consumption, Germany's fiscal outlook, the view from Berlin)

Ausblick Deutschland: Konjunkturboom kein Grund für fiskalische Selbstzufriedenheit
Abstract: Prognose für das deutsche BIP-Wachstum in Q2 auf 0,8% angehoben. Angesichts zuletzt starker Vertrauensindikatoren und monatlicher Daten haben wir unsere BIP-Prognose für Q2 von 0,6% auf 0,8% (gegenüber Vor-quartal) angehoben (Q1 0,6%). Der private Verbrauch dürfte der Haupttreiber für das deutlich über Potenzial liegende Wachstum sein. Im zweiten Halbjahr sollte die zuletzt deutliche Euro-Aufwertung spürbar werden. Andererseits haben die ifo Exporterwartungen in den letzten Monaten deutlich zugelegt und lagen im Juli nur noch um einen Punkt unter ihrem Allzeithoch. Dies könnte auf die stärker als erwartet wachsende Konjunktur im Rest der Eurozone sowie auf eine Belebung der Nachfrage aus China zurückzuführen sein.

Packed European agenda for the next government: Numerous challenges, no (easy) answers
Abstract: The benign economic and public environment allows to fundamentally address shortcomings of the E(M)U. The next German government’s term is faced with numerous challenges ranging from Brexit and its impact on the next EU Budget to migration and the upgrade of the euro area. A revitalised relation with France provides the opportunity for substantive steps to further stabilise the euro area albeit Germany and France need to find common ground on many issues and seek the support of EU partners. European politics is still less of a topic for the German electorate not least as mainstream parties are all various shades of pro-European. However, the next government’s party composition is likely to matter for both speed and scope of changes on European level.

The grass is always greener on the other side: Europeans more EU-sceptic than non-Europeans
Abstract: The European project has had some ups and downs but the extent of European cooperation is unique in history. This is why the outsiders’ view on the European Union is even more interesting.

Auf der anderen Seite ist das Gras grüner: Europäer EU-kritischer als Rest der Welt
Abstract: Die europäische Einigung hat in der Vergangenheit einige Höhen und Tiefen erlebt, in ihrem Umfang ist die europäische Zusammenarbeit allerdings historisch einmalig. Umso interessanter ist der Blick von außen auf die EU.

Ausblick Deutschland: Überhitzungsrisiken drohen
Abstract: Die deutsche Wirtschaft dürfte auch im zweiten Quartal ihr kräftiges Wachstumstempo beibehalten haben. Insbesondere der Konsum entwickelt sich dank zuletzt wieder sinkender Ölpreise und weiter kräftig steigender Beschäftigung günstiger als erwartet. Wir haben unsere BIP-Prognose für das Gesamtjahr auf 1,6% (1,3%) angehoben, was einer kalenderbereinigten Rate von 2% entspricht. Auch in 2018 dürfte das deutsche BIP mit 1,7% bereits das fünfte Jahr in Folge über der Potenzialrate von 1 ¼% wachsen. Die Outputlücke dürfte dann auf über 2pp steigen. Der enge Arbeitsmarkt könnte bei den Anfang 2018 anstehenden Tarifverhandlungen (Metall, Öffentlicher Sektor und Bau) zu steigenden Lohnabschlüssen von teilweise deutlich über 3% führen. Vor dem Hintergrund zusätzlicher fiskalischer Impulse nach der Bundestagswahl und einer weiterhin extrem lockeren Geldpolitik steigt das Überhitzungsrisiko zumindest in Teilbereichen der deutschen Volkswirtschaft zusehends an. Jedoch dürfte die Inflationsrate bis weit in das Jahr 2018 noch unter 2% liegen, nicht zuletzt weil wir keine Abwertung des EUR gegenüber dem USD mehr erwarten.

Focus Germany: Overheating risks are looming
Abstract: The German economy is likely to have maintained its rapid growth rate in the second quarter. Consumer spending, in particular, has been stronger than expected thanks to the recent fall in oil prices and the continuing significant rise in employment levels. We have revised our GDP forecast for the whole year upwards to 1.6% (1.3%) which is equivalent to a calendar-adjusted rate of 2%. With an expected increase of 1.7% in 2018, German GDP is again likely to exceed the trend growth rate of around 1.25% – for the fifth successive year – and the positive output gap should widen to over two percentage points. The tight labour market could lead to increases in pay settlements of more than 3% during the round of collective pay bargaining (public sector, construction and metals) set to take place in early 2018, especially as these deals that are due to expire were originally negotiated some time ago, which signals some catch-up potential. Against the backdrop of additional fiscal stimuli after the Bundestag election, and monetary policy remaining extremely relaxed, the risk of overheating, at least in parts of the German economy, is increasing. However, the rate of (consumer price) inflation over the coming two years should remain below 2%, especially as we are not anticipating a depreciation of the euro against the US dollar.

Defence spending, fiscal stimulus and European integration
Abstract: European defence and security spending is a thread that connects several disparate themes: the refugee crisis and the need to better secure EU borders; US criticism of Europe’s NATO spending; and the move towards closer European integration. A Macron-Merkel alliance promises to push European integration. Strengthening the single currency area will take time. Progress towards a common treasury, stabilization funds and safe bonds is unlikely before 2020 – after the next European Parliamentary elections. These ideas are controversial, complex and not guaranteed to materialize. Defence and security issues, on the other hand, are more immediate and are starting to be addressed by policy with the recent European Defence Action Plan (EDAP). How far Europe is willing to go in this area could signal the appetite for progress in other areas too.
