Considerazioni.

Sia l’Unione Europea sia l’eurozona sono in piena recessione: la produzione industriale è scesa del -2.0% anno su anno, e la discesa perduta da molti mesi, senza vederne una possibile via di uscita.

Tuttavia questa non è una sorta di maledizione divina o di catastrofe naturale: essa dipende strettamente dalle politiche economiche perseguite dai rispettivi governi, aggravate poi dai comportamenti della Commissione Europea uscente.

A riprova, per esempio l’Ungheria è passata da 107.3 del 2017Q4 ad un 115.5 del 2019Q2. La produzione industriale ungherese è aumentata del -8.7% anno su anno.

La Polonia, poi, è passata da 113 del 2017Q4 ad un 121.6 del 2019Q2.

La Germania, invece, è scesa da 106.2 del 2017Q4 a 101.1 del 2019Q2.

Non sono dati inspiegabili.

Governo Cinese convoca l’ambasciatore di Germania.

«The Chinese Ambassador to Germany said on Wednesday that a recent meeting between the German foreign minister and Hong Kong activist Joshua Wong had sent “very negative signals.”»

«German companies, many of which have been impacted by the ongoing trade war between Beijing and the Washington, traded nearly €100 billion ($109.87 billion) with China in the first half of 2019»

«Beijing had repeatedly asked Berlin to deny Wong entry to Germany»

«Da fonti cinesi solitamente molto bene informate si apprende che oltre un centinaio di ditte cinesi hanno già disdetto contratti in essere con la Germania.»
