14 Jan 2022 Draghi's Departure Wouldn't Change Italy's Outlook, Much

  • Decent hard data lead us to raise our Q4 forecast for Italy, as for Spain, but GDP growth has slowed.
  • Italian GDP likely rose by 0.8% in Q4; Q1's outcome will be little more than zero, as virus restrictions bite.
  • An early election in Italy would put upward pressure on BTP yields, but it would prove short-lived.

2 Nov 2021 Italian Reforms are Coming; will they make a Difference to Growth?

  • Italy has a reputation for a slow judicial system, weak tax collection and low labour productivity...
  • ...But Draghi has pushed through reforms aimed at reversing these drags on the economy.
  • We are hopeful, but sceptical, about how much reform will happen before the next election, in 2023.

20 Oct 2021 Construction in the EZ has St alled, but Should Rebound Slightly in Q4

  • EZ construction output slipped in August, all but ensuring a decline through Q3 as a whole.
  • Shortages in labour and raw materials are holding back construction, but output should rebound in Q4.
  • A traffic light coalition is now a solid base-case in Germany, but a leap in fiscal stimulus isn't.

28 Sept 2021 A Traffic Light or a New Grand Coalition in Germany

  • Germany will get a Traffic Light or a new Grand Coalition, but we don't dare bet on either outcome.
  • Slower growth in EZ real M1 points to a further dip in the composite PMI to about 55 in Q4.
  • Bank lending to non-financial firms is now rising again, slightly; the trend has slowed.

24 Sept 2021 GDP Growth in the EZ is Now Slowing, but How Quickly

  • The message from the PMI: The reopening boom is over, and supply-side woes are hitting demand.
  • We are adjusting our EZ GDP growth forecast for Q4 down a tad, to 0.7-to-0.8% quarter-on-quarter.
  • No change from the SNB, as expected; Spain's Q2 GDP growth cut by more than half.

22 Sept 2021 A New Chancellor in Germany, but Same-Old Murky Coalition Politics

  • The polls in Germany have stabilised, pointing to an inconclusive result in Sunday's vote.
  • The SPD's Olaf Scholz likely will be Chancellor, but the route to a stable coalition isn't clear.
  • All eyes on the combined tally of the SPD, the Greens, and Die Linke; +50% and bunds will suffer.

2 Sept 2021 The Eurozone's Industrial Sector Remains in the Doldrums, for now

  • EZ manufacturing output is still hampered by supply-side woes, but it's not all bad news.
  • Unemployment in the EZ fell further at the start of Q3; we think the good news will keep coming.
  • SPD's lead in the German polls is startling, but not yet a game-changer for the final outcome.
