 G20-Länder nach US-Blockade nur mit Minimal-Konsens zum Handel – IWF-Chefin warnt davor, die Erholung der Weltwirtschaft auszubremsen

Baden-Baden – In der G20-Gruppe der führenden Industrie- und Schwellenländer ist der Handelskonflikt mit den USA offen ausgebrochen. Die neue Regierung in Washington verhinderte nach heftigem Widerstand ein gemeinsames Bekenntnis zu freiem Handel und gegen Marktabschottung. Die Finanzminister und Notenbankchefs verständigten sich am Samstag nach zweitägigem Ringen in Baden-Baden nur auf einen Minimalkonsens. In der Abschlusserklärung heißt es knapp: „Wir arbeiten daran, den Beitrag des Handels für unsere Volkswirtschaften zu stärken.“ Damit konnte Gastgeber Deutschland trotz teils nächtelanger Kompromisssuche nur eine Einigung auf den kleinsten gemeinsamen Nenner erreichen. Themen wie Prinzipien für robustere Volkswirtschaften oder Investitionspartnerschäften für Afrika gerieten in den Hintergrund. Den Rest des Beitrags lesen »

Roubini Warns : #Trump Fiscal Policies will disapoint

„[Markets] are overestimating the positives of the US-Trump policies. Infrastructure, stimulus, deregulation, tax cuts: I think Trump will achieve much less on those dimensions,“ he said. „And they’re underestimating the risk that the U.S. protectionist policies are going to lead to trade wars, that the restrictions on immigration are going to slow down labor supply, and that micromanaging the corporate sector is going to be negative.“

Roubini added that the policy mix for the U.S. also presents a challenge: Fiscal stimulus is going to force the Fed to tighten more, it’s going to push up interest rates and the dollar, he said. „In a way it’s going to weaken the economy over time.“

Populists helped move the nation’s mainstream parties to the right and transformed political norms despite falling short at the polls.

Dutch PM Mark Rutte wins election: Netherlands says no to ‘wrong kind of populism‘

As results flooded in after the Dutch general election, incumbent Prime Minister Mark Rutte was beaming.

The country, he said, had hit back against far-right, anti-Islam politician Geert Wilders and the hate he espoused. Wilders’s Party for Freedom came a distant second, with 20 seats, to Rutte’s People’s Party for Freedom and Democracy, which won 33. “The Netherlands said: ‘Whoa!’ to the wrong kind of populism,” Rutte told supporters at a rally. Headlines proclaimed that, despite the nativist insurgencies of 2016, the Dutch had rallied in support of the liberal center.

But the truth is not that simple. Wilders is out of power, but his influence is everywhere. He has shown how populists can transform political norms, even when they lose. Rutte’s party responded to rising populism in the Netherlands by toughening its stance on immigration. Case in point: During the campaign, Rutte took out an ad in a Dutch paper that urged migrants in the Netherlands to “be normal or go away.” Den Rest des Beitrags lesen »

Interview with Emmanuel Macron

‚I Am Offering the French Renewal‘

In an interview, French presidential candidate Emmanuel Macron discusses his surprise political ascent, the desire of many for a new kind of politics and the necessity of widespread reforms in his country.

French presidential candidate Emmanuel Macron

We’re on board the TGV 8434 train from Bordeaux to Paris. Emmanuel Macron, 39, the former economics minister and current presidential candidate is traveling in second class. The air is sticky in the compartment, in part because of the camera team that is accompanying Macron at each step of the campaign. With only five weeks to go before the first round of voting, the strain is visible.

Macron has become this campaign’s true sensation, rising from the status of outsider to becoming one of the candidates with the greatest prospects for election. His ascent has been helped by a scandal involving conservative candidate François Fillon, who is the subject of a criminal investigation by the public prosecutor’s office over allegations he used government money to pay his wife and children for jobs they never did.

Since the allegations surfaced, Macron has taken a lead over the candidate in polls going into the first round of voting on April 23. Right-wing populist Marine Le Pen also has only a slight lead over him, and it is likely that Macron would have a clear lead on the Front National leader in a run-off vote. If he prevails, Macron would become France’s youngest-ever president.

During his interview with SPIEGEL during the train ride, Macron looked a little fatigued from the campaign, but he remained attentive and concentrated throughout. Den Rest des Beitrags lesen »
