    Restrictive US Trade Policy Has a Significantly Negative Effect on Financial Markets

    With its America First strategy, the former US administration turned away from an internationally oriented trade policy. It attempted to assert its interests, especially vis-à-vis China, with bilateral and mostly restrictive measures such as import tariffs. This Weekly Report shows that the costs of such a strategy are immense, at least in the medium-term analysis conducted: Almost all US industries ...

    Climate Neutrality Requires Coordinated Measures for High Quality Recycling

    For Europe to reach climate neutrality by mid-century, it needs to move toward a circular economy. Waste avoidance, reuse, and recycling save primary resources and avoid emissions in the production of basic materials like steel, cement, and plastics.

    The Case of Deutsche Telekom: How Stock Market Crashes Can Persistantly Affect Household Investment Decisions

    Since decades, only one fourth of German households invest in shares.

    Global Economy: Advanced Economies Facing a Strong Upturn: DIW Economic Outlook Summer 2021

    Global recovery is progressing more slowly than was indicated in 2020 due to high coronavirus rates and related economic restrictions in Europe and Japan.
