23 Nov 2022 Eurozone Monitor The EZ Current Account Deficit will Continue to Narrow, For Now

6 Oct 2022 Eurozone Monitor EZ PMIs for September were Ugly, and they will be Worse in Q4

  • The EZ PMIs weakened further in September, and we fear further declines lie ahead.

21 Sept 2022 Eurozone Monitor The EZ Current Account Crashed at the Start of the Third Quarter

16 Sept 2022 Eurozone Monitor Net Trade is A Wildcard for Our EZ Recession Call

  • Another rise in imports meant the EZ trade deficit widened further at the start of the third quarter.
