Economic policy messages do matter

  • Por José María Romero Vera
  • 5th of April 2019

The case of Italy in the last year, and of other countries in the past, show the negative effect that the wrong economic policy messages can have. The Spanish economy continues to grow noticeably above the Eurozone average. However, it is immersed in a different phase of the economic cycle with lower expansion rates.

Yet the uncertainty generated by numerous economic policy messages, at the national and regional level, has resulted in a significant drop in the number of car registrations in Spain in the last few months.

Downturn and the need for certainty

  • 14th of November 2018

The Spanish economy is immersed in a downturn phase of the expansive economic cycle, with more moderate variation rates. According to estimates in Equipo Economico, GDP will grow 2.6% in 2018 and 2.2% in 2019. These figures mean a downward revision with respect to our previous estimates, as a result of the change in external tail winds, lack of economic reforms since 2016 and the uncertainty generated in the last months by the messages on economic, budgetary and fiscal matters.

New digital taxation

  • Por Irene Carrera Aguado
  • 13th of September 2017

The search for solutions to the aggressive practices in terms of taxation applied by technological multinationals in recent years is a priority for both the EU and the OECD countries. The possibilities go from the creation of new taxes, like the "Google rate", to the widening of the EP concept. However, there is currently no coordinated response on an international level. A clear positioning of the Tax Administrations will be necessary, which will favor a fair distribution of taxation, but also the greater legal certainty for the development of the activities of the digital economy.

The anti-European proposals of most candidates are of concern to global economic players, as revealed by the slight rebound in the French public debt risk premium. Macroeconomic indicators do not appear to justify the social unrest suggested by the major strength of the intention to vote for extreme political options. Against this backdrop, the EU once again holds its breath because without France there is no Europe.
