India: Battered but not beaten (Engelstalig)

Tapering talk has sent the Indian rupee to record lows, but India is not a blameless victim. It struggles with fundamental issues constraining economic growth, large twin deficits and declining investor confidence on the back of inadequate reforms.


Economic Update Russia (Engelstalig)

Russia’s economic growth has continued to slow this year and we expect 2.2% growth in 2013. The central bank is likely to loosen monetary policy amid falling inflation. The government’s stimulus measures are justifiable, but no effect is expected in the very short term.


France: A jobless recovery (Engelstalig)

A strong GDP figure in 13Q2 and rising sentiment levels show that economic conditions are improving. That said, the GDP figure was boosted by temporary factors while the rigid labour market does not show any signs of recovery yet.


Spain: Adios recesión? (Engelstalig)

A better than expected GDP figure for 13Q2 and rising sentiment levels suggest that economic conditions are improving. That said, a quick housing market and labour market recovery is not on the cards yet.


Germany: Still going strong (Engelstalig)

Second quarter economic growth in Germany was broad-based. Given the current readings of both the producer and consumer confidence, the economy is expected to continue growing in the coming quarters.


Over de waardering van woningen

In deze Special schatten we een huizenprijsmodel. De modeluitkomsten suggereren dat transactieprijzen binnen afzienbare tijd zullen stabiliseren en op termijn weer gematigd zullen gaan stijgen. Exacte voorspellingen voor toekomstige prijsontwikkelingen zijn echter niet te geven.

Kwartaalbericht Woningmarkt

Kwartaalbericht Woningmarkt

Dutch Housing Market Quarterly (Engelstalig)

Several signs indicate a possible market recovery. E.g. the affordability of housing and consumer confidence improved due to lower prices since 2008. However, economic upturn is essential for a substantial recovery of the housing market.



De huizenmarkt is op zoek naar een nieuw evenwicht. Een eufemisme om te zeggen dat woningprijzen structureel lager komen te liggen. Veel wijst erop dat we nu onder het nieuwe evenwicht zitten. Maar welke evenwichtskunstenaar brengt ons daar weer naartoe?

Economisch Kwartaalbericht

Has the world turned upside down? (Engelstalig)

The emerging markets are facing some headwinds. Slower growth in China together with the ‘taper’ talk in the US is weighing on economic activity.

Economisch Kwartaalbericht

Finally some tailwinds (Engelstalig)

There are signs that UK’s economic activity is gathering momentum. But the recovery is not on a solid footing yet and, therefore, needs to be nurtured. Should ‘forward guidance’ not succeed to stem the tightening of financial condi-tions, more QE will probably be reconsidered as an option, especially because the government will not opt for a slower pace of fiscal austerity.
