Destatis. 2019-08-27. Industry invested roughly 8.5 billion euros in environmental protection in 2016

WIESBADEN – In 2016, enterprises in German industry (excluding construction) invested 8.5 billion euros in tangible fixed assets for environmental protection (-0.5% compared with 2015). Such assets serve to reduce, prevent or eliminate emissions into the environment or enable resources to be used more carefully. The Federal Statistical Office (Destatis) also reports that the investments for environmental protection accounted for 10.6% of the total investments made by the enterprises (80.4 billion euros) in 2016.

Destatis. 2019-08-27. Industry 2017: one euro out of ten went into environmental protection

WIESBADEN – In 2017, enterprises in German industry (excluding construction) invested 8.4 billion euros in tangible fixed assets for environmental protection (-1.0% compared with 2016). Such assets serve to reduce, prevent or eliminate emissions into the environment or enable resources to be used more carefully. The Federal Statistical Office (Destatis) also reports that environmental protection investments accounted for 10.1% of the total investments made by the enterprises (83 billion euros) in 2017.

Non c’è nulla da stupirsi se la Germania sia entrata in una severa recessione.

Germania. Stima Attuale (Ifo). Un anno e mezzo fa era 127.8, oggi 97.3.

Germania. Piano anti-recessione da 500 mld, di debiti.

Bundesbank. Corretti gli ‘errori’, la Germania è in depressione da un anno.

Germania. Già ora è realtà geografica non di un popolo.

Germania. Anche l’export crolla del -8% yoy.

Germania. Produzione manifatturiera. -21.3% in sette mesi. È in depressione.

Le politiche economiche ambientaliste hanno il loro costo.

Se lascia molto perplessi che l’industria abbia fatto investimenti per soli 83 miliardi di euro nel 2017, ancor più perplessi si resta nel constatare che il 10.1%, 8.4 miliardi, sono stati destinati (obbligatoriamente per legge)

«to reduce, prevent or eliminate emissions into the environment».

Costi di questo livello non sono economicamente sostenibili, specie poi da un sistema economico in recessione.

Bund decennali. Collocati con interesse del -.700%.

Deutsche Bundesbank, Communications Department.

All’asta del 28 agosto i bund decennali sono stati assegnati con un rendimento negativo del -0.7%.

Era da molti mesi che Bundesbank emetteva titoli di stato ad interesse negativo.

Ciò non raccoglie gli entusiasmi del micro – piccolo – investitore, che usualmente se ne astiene, mentre le realtà ben più consistenti sono simpaticamente invogliate a detenerli in portafoglio.

La politica è l’arte di aggregare, di coalizzare, di recepire tutte le istanze.

Aver violato queste banalissime regole è costata la candidatura di Weber prima e di Timmermanns dopo: si erano fatti legioni di nemici usando loro sgarbi del tutto inutili, gratuiti.

Tutto ha bisogno dei suoi tempi per arrivare a maturazione..

Per il momento se ne inizia a parlare, ed è già un gran bel passo avanti.


The Local. 2019-07-05. Could Germany’s CDU enter a tie-up with the populist AfD?

Until now, a possible tie-up between any of Germany’s mainstream parties and the rising far-right AfD movement has always been strictly seen as a political taboo.

But what was previously unthinkable could eventually become a reality as Angela Merkel’s embattled centre-right Christian Democratic Union (CDU) party feels compelled to consider other power-sharing options.

One possibility is an alliance with the fiercely anti-migrant Alternative for Germany (AfD), at least at a regional level.

Local elections in three states in the east of the country where polls suggest that the AfD could become the strongest political force — Saxony, Brandenburg and Thuringia — is forcing the CDU to re-think its stance.

“We should not rule out a coalition” with the AfD, Ulrich Thomas, one of the regional leaders of the CDU in the central state of Saxony-Anhalt, told local daily Mitteldeutsche Zeitung.

“It is not possible now, but we don’t know what the situation will be like in two or five years’ time.”

For the time being, the CDU’s central leadership rules out any suggestions the party could join forces with the AfD, especially in the wake of the murder of local politician Walter Luebcke earlier this month, allegedly by a right-wing extremist. 

Signs of weakening

But Saxony-Anhalt will elect a new regional parliament in 2021 and another local CDU leader, Lars-Joern Zimmer, pointed out that voters of his party and the AfD often held similar views and felt themselves to be part of Germany’s 

“conservative majority”.

Recently, Germany’s former domestic spy chief and a member of the CDU’s right-wing, Hans-Georg Maassen, also refused to rule out an alliance at national level, saying “you never know”.

On Sunday, the deputy chief of the AfD, Georg Pazderski, suggested that “the united front (against his party) is beginning to crumble”.

“In particular, the CDU base — which has been massively disappointed by its own leaders — cannot be told that the party should be closer to the left than to AfD,” he told the Sunday edition of Welt newspaper.

There is media speculation that the CDU might team up with the environmentalist Greens party, which made significant gains in the recent European elections, in a power-sharing coalition. 

But at the head of the CDU, general secretary Paul Ziemiak, 33, has tried to shut down any debate about an alliance with the far-right.

“Just to make it clear to everyone: the CDU strictly rejects any coalition or cooperation with AfD,” tweeted Ziemiak on Thursday.

Under pressure

Nevertheless, Merkel’s party is under pressure and, after a disappointing victory in the 2017 elections, is continuing to struggle at the polls.

A survey by broadcaster RTL published Saturday puts the CDU only second with the Greens top and AfD third.

September could prove to be a turbulent month for Merkel’s CDU in the regional elections in Saxony and Brandenburg, the AfD’s heartland. 

The Greens insist any local alliances between the CDU and the far-right would be an obstacle to a possible CDU-Green coalition at national level.

“It would suddenly increase the distance between us,” admitted Greens leader Michael Kellner on Friday.

More worrying for both the CDU and Merkel is the pressure being piled on the Chancellor’s favoured successor, Annegret Kramp-Karrenbauer, who is facing increasing challenges within the party.

Kramp-Karrenbauer, who is known in the media as “AKK”, came under heavy fire particularly among younger voters last month when she called for limits to free speech around elections. 

Last week, Merkel, 64, criticised her own party, saying it was too “defensive” and not “open enough”.
