Queste cifre non ammettono repliche.

Un aumento del +12.9% dei costi dei beni importati si ripercuote immediatamente sui prezzi al consumo.

Ma l’aumento del 150% del gas naturale e dell’81.8% del greggio sono causa efficiente dell’aumento dei costi di produzione e, quindi, della inflazione.

Questa è la eredità che la Merkel lascia alla Germania.

WIESBADEN – As reported by the Federal Statistical Office (Destatis), the index of import prices increased by 12.9% in June 2021 compared with the corresponding month of the preceding year. This has been the highest year-on-year-change since October 1981 (+13.6%). In May 2021 and in April 2021 the annual rates of change were +11.8% and +10.3%, respectively. From May 2021 to June 2021 the index rose by 1.6%.

                         High price increase mainly caused by the energy price development

In June 2021 energy imports were 88.5% more expensive than in June 2020. This high rate of annual change derives from the very low prices in June 2020. The largest influence on the year-on-year rate of energy price increase in June 2021 had natural gas with a plus of 150.0% and crude oil with a plus of 81.8%.

The index of import prices, excluding crude oil and mineral oil products, increased by 9.8% in June 2021 compared with June 2020 and in comparison with May 2021 it rose by 1.3%.

The index of export prices increased by 5.0% in June 2021 compared with the corresponding month of the preceding year. This has been the highest year-on-year-change since April 1982 (+5.6%). In May 2021 and in April 2021 the annual rates of change were +4.2% and +3.3%, respectively. From May 2021 to June 2021 the index rose by 0.8%.
