Bruttoinlandsprodukt, zweites Quartal 2016: Verteilungsspielraum ausgeschöpft, Wirtschaftswachstum angemessen?
English Summary: Yesterday the Federal Statistical Office has published the detailed results of gross domestic product for the second quarter 2016. On that basis we calculate whether the development of wages and growth were appropriate. At the beginning of each year we additionally calculate which growth rate would be necessary to reach full employment in Germany (see here). The calculations and their interpretation are decisive to estimate the economic and social development in Germany. They could serve as an instrument for a proper economic policy, too.

Medienanalyse, Juni und 2. Quartal 2016: Wie häufig kamen die Parteien im öffentlichen Rundfunk zu Wort (neu: nachrichtlich ergänzt um AfD und FDP)?
English summary: Each month WuG presents a media analysis answering the question how often German parties, represented in the national parliament of the Federal Republic of Germany, Deutsche Bundestag, are being interviewed by German public broadcasting. This in our view is decisive for a democratic formation of opinion. The high imbalances we found out so far resulted already in a case at the broadcasting commission. The final answer of this commission which we received is not at all convincing. On the contrary, the letter of the chairman of the broadcasting commission poses new questions. Against this background we found out in a further analysis that according to our information more than one third of the membership of the broadcasting commission is active in a political party and had or have a certain political rank in it, among them the chairman and the deputy chairman of the broadcasting commission. This contrasts with a judgement of the Federal Constitutional Court as we have outlined in the same article. Moreover, whereas the parties CDU, CSU, SPD, Bündnis 90/Die Grünen are represented in the broadcasting commission the left party “Die Linke” is not. One regular result of our analysis is that the public radio station Deutschlandfunk interviews politicians of the left party far less than those of the other parties represented in the national parliament. However, it is less important which party is strikingly underrepresented in public-broadcasting, but rather that one party is strikingly underrepresented at all – for years.

English Summary: “Experts are surprised: The fast-paced appreciation of the CHF has not affected the Swiss economy. Recently exports even slightly grow”, writes Holger Alich in the German financial newspaper “Handelsblatt” on the figures of gross domestic product in the second quarter published today by the State Secretariat for Economic Affairs SECO. However, the development is not a surprise according to our comprehensive analysis on the Swiss economy published in three parts in January and our monthly analysis of the Swiss business cycle on the basis of the economic activity indicator developed by Claus Köhler, former member of the German Council of Economic Experts.
