    Broad Electricity Price Subsidies for Industry Are Not a Suitable Relief Instrument

    The sharp rise in electricity prices has led to a discussion on possible subsidies for companies in the form of an industrial power tariff.

    Despite Crises, the Stability of the Euro Is Rooted in the Middle Class

    In the 24 years since its introduction, the euro has experienced a financial crisis, a government debt crisis, a global pandemic, and an energy crisis—and survived. Using a model focusing on households, this Weekly Report shows that the monetary union’s stability is rooted in the fact that the middle class neither gains nor loses significantly relative to an independent currency following business ...

    Chinese Loans to African Countries Differ from Western Development Loans

    Over the past 20 years, China has granted a conspicuous amount of loans to African countries. New loan data show that compared to Western multilateral loans, Chinese loans have relatively high interest rates and shorter maturities, tend to be highly collateralized, and are volatile over time.
