Conjunctuurbeelden: altijd up to date!

Conjunctuurbeelden zijn onze periodieke publicaties met de actuele conjuncturele ontwikkelingen in de beschreven (industrie-)landen. Daarbij kijken we ook naar onder meer het (economische) beleid van de desbetreffende overheden en het sentiment onder ondernemers.

Conjunctuurbeeld

Russia: Economic slowdown continues (Engelstalig)

Russia’s economic activity has continued to slow in 13Q3 and we expect growth in 2013 as a whole to be around 1.5%. The economic slowdown is starting to adversely impact public finances. The central bank has left rates on hold for now, despite falling inflation.

Brazil: Economy contracts in third quarter 2013 (Engelstalig)

The third quarter was disappointing for Brazil, as GDP contracted for the first time since 2009 on a quarterly basis. Growth in the coming quarters is likely to be somewhat stronger, but leading indicators suggest that momentum remains rather weak.

Italy: Arrivederci recessione?! (Engelstalig)

GDP growth stagnated in 13Q3. One cannot talk of a start of economic recovery yet, though. The contribution of domestic demand was negative and there are still significant headwinds. On a positive note, policy uncertainty might fall going forward.

Nederland: Het groeigevoel

Het sentiment in de Nederlandse conjunctuur duidt op economische groei in het vierde kwartaal. Tegelijkertijd is het herstel broos en zal de werkloosheid waarschijnlijk nog oplopen.

Conjunctuurbeeld

Spain: Basta recesión! (Engelstalig)

Spanish GDP rose in 13Q3, after nine quarterly contractions in a row. Although positive, we do not expect a quick recovery on the labour market. Based on the Budget 2014, the fiscal effort will be slightly less than in preceding years.

Germany: Steady as she goes (Engelstalig)

Once again, the German economy posted a positive growth figure in the third quarter. The increase has been entirely domestic-driven. We expect domestic demand to remain strong given the solid labour market and the positive investment outlook.

Conjunctuurbeeld

France: Nombres rouges (Engelstalig)

The French economy slightly contracted in 13Q3, but this was largely due to a bounce back from the strong 13Q2 figure. We expect the recovery to continue, albeit very gradually. Therefore, we do not envisage a robust improvement in the labour market.
