Economisch commentaar

Brexit Monitor: customs fudge and economic blues (Engelstalig)

The choice of the UK to leave the EU will have significant consequences for trade between the EU and the UK and will affect many companies. Our Brexit Monitor tracks the latest Brexit developments and anticipates on further progress.


Brexit update: transition ON! (Engelstalig)

The EU and the UK reached an agreement over a transition period on March 19, 2018. That is good for business continuity but does not affect our Brexit outcome base case. Hence, we maintain our view that the economy will slow down in 2018.

Argentinians vote: Macri, carry on! (Engelstalig)

On 22 October, Argentina held legislative mid-term elections and the ruling coalition Cambiemos claimed the victory - an important vote of confidence regarding its reform path.


Latin America: the times, they are changing (Engelstalig)

Anti-establishment sentiment is growing in Latin America, just like elsewhere on the back of a growing and increasingly vocal middle class. Latin America continues to shift away from populism and policy is becoming more constructive.


Latin America: The only way is up (Engelstalig)

Having reached rock bottom in 2016, Latin American economies are performing better in 2017. Most countries have fared well the adverse period, though fiscal positions have weakened across the board.


Latin America: Trump-eting throughout the region (Engelstalig)

A large-scale protectionist package by the US could hurt Latin American economies via lower exports, foreign direct investment and remittances. Our base case is that such a package will not come given the short term adverse impact on the US economy.


Argentina: open for business (Engelstalig)

A new government has embarked on a major and much-needed shift in economic policies. The economic recovery is in sight and business opportunities arise in sectors with high catch up potential.
