I media liberal mondiali stanno passando sotto silenzio i dati relativi alla catastrofe economica che sta verificandosi in Europa.

«In the euro area in December 2019, compared with December 2018, production of capital goods fell by 6.7%, intermediate goods by 5.5%, …. In the EU27, production of capital goods fell by 6.0%, intermediate goods by 4.9%, ….

the largest decreases in industrial production were registered in Estonia (-9.9%), Romania (-8.9%) and Germany (-7.2%). Italy -4,3%»

Questo è quanto riporta Eu News, che cita il Report di Eurostat.

Ma che è anche una delle poche testate che riportano questi numeri.

Riportiamo anche l’articolo comparso sul The New York Times, dalla cui lettura il Lettore potrà farsi una idea sul modo di pensare e di porsi dei liberal democratici americani.

A nostro sommesso avviso, tacere una notizia di tale portata non significa minimamente che il fatto non sia accaduto.

Né tanto meno lo esorcizza.

Industrial production falls markedly in December

December data saw German industry end 2019 on a sour note, with industrial production contracting 3.5% month-on-month on a seasonally- and calendar-adjusted basis, contrasting the upwardly revised 1.2% monthly expansion logged in November (previously reported: +1.1% month-on-month). The December data revealed that the downturn was broad-based as production of capital, intermediate and consumer goods all decreased. Activity in the construction sector also fell, while energy production rose.

On average, industrial production fell at an accelerated rate in Q4 compared to the third quarter as the sector remained in a tough spot—amid lingering trade tensions, weak global economic momentum and structural challenges in the automotive sector—and a drag on sequential economic growth.

Compared to the same month a year prior, industrial output fell 6.8% (November 2019: -2.5% year-on-year) and marking the steepest annual contraction since November 2009. Annual average industrial production, meanwhile, fell 3.5% in December, down from November’s 3.2% drop.

Turning to this year, the downturn in the industrial sector is expected to linger, although output is forecast to drop at a much softer pace. Moreover, the balance of risks remains tilted to the downside as external headwinds remain in place.

Panelists polled by FocusEconomics expect industrial production to drop 0.4% in 2020, which is down 0.2 percentage points from last month’s forecast. For 2021, the panel sees industrial production expanding 1.7%.

NYT. German Industrial Production, Exports Weak in December

BERLIN — German industrial production dropped sharply in December and exports barely edged higher, official data showed Friday, rounding off a poor year for manufacturing in Europe’s biggest economy.

Production was down 3.5% compared with the previous month, the Economy Ministry said. It added that production over the full fourth quarter was down 1.9%, led by sharper drops in the machinery and auto industries.

Those figures came on top of a 2.1% month-on-month decline in factory orders reported Thursday.

Also Friday, Germany’s Federal Statistical Office reported that exports were up 0.1% on the month in December after dropping 2.2% the previous month. Imports were down 0.7%.

That meant that, for the full year, exports rose just 0.8% — compared with 3% the previous year and 6.2% in 2017. Imports were up 1.4%, down from 5.6% in 2018 and 8% in 2017.

Germany’s economy has grown for 10 consecutive years but last year’s 0.6% growth was the weakest since 2013. Fourth-quarter figures haven’t yet been released, but officials estimated last month that the economy grew slightly compared with the previous quarter.
