Interactive Map Of Europe's Recessionary Tide

Tyler Durden's picture

As noted earlier, and in the aftermath of both the UK and Spain officially double dipping, very soon a majority of Europe will be submerged under the latest recessionary tide which has already engulfed Spain, UK, Greece, Italy,  Portugal, Ireland, Belgium, Denmark,  Holland, Czech Republic, and  Slovenia. The primary wildcard remains Germany, although there is a more than 50% chance that following some very weak PMI data, the country will follow up its already negative Q4 GDP print with another decline, officially pushing the European growth dynamo into recession as well (as for France which reps and warrants that everything is great, it is not as if anyone actually believes those numbers, especially after Hollande becomes president in one week). For everyone who wants to track the European double dip tsunami in real time, the following interactive chart from Reuters is just for you.

What is very interesting, is that the heavy Baltic cuts have resulted in a quick return to growth.

But APPARENTLY Krugman knows better, and the path of profligate spending which NOT ONCE before in the history of mankind has worked, is the ONLY WAY OUT of the current malaise.

Krugman is an absolute imbecile.

Krugman is an absolute imbecile.

Definitely, and the fact that he was not stripped of his Nobel (not yet or ever) means that he is not a plain but, on the contrary, a useful imbecile.

More LTRO so markets are headed up. And if things turn for the better the markets are headed up. And if Fukushimo reactor spent fuel pool #4 topples I'm headed south.

I call bullshit on the bar chart. Are we to believe that GDP year-on-year growth of 1% or less is not a recession? The positive bars (blue) also assume the official government published deflators (CPI) which are all massaged down by at least a factor of 2. The correct interpretation is that the whole EU is in recession or damn near it.

Once more, the algorithm sells gold on no relevant news. I guess these guys are upset we fucked them on Apr 25th, when they lost money trying to drive it down to $1,625. They will need to lose more money to achieve that. Fuckers! I just cannot believe there is no one, nobody, investigating this manipulation.

I think the books are coocked, there is a skeleton in the closet and a pile of shit under the rug... From what I know every entity is in massive debt over here, its all just waiting to blow up. Truth will rise to the surface sooner or later, and I hope we'll be dropping all the polititians out of helicopters into the baltic sea in a little while.

I am on to you's picture

No one else on this planet tells the truth,on the ongoing planetary money laundering show,global style.

Exports add to GDP.... but there is a domestic demand crisis withen that country.

Ditto for Ireland...... Ireland looks like the worst country from GDP perspective but its must worse really... our domestic demand is down by more then a quarter now.

But our exports are fantastic.... we have the highest trade surplus in the Eurozone per capita  .. but it is not taxed much.

The Euro boys club are using exports from these countries to pay off a stock of debt.

Take away the deficit spending and the blues turn to reds and the reds turn to blood.

I don't understand this stuff about Germany. When I look at Germany I see flat retail sales, luxury goods discounted for cash, people panhandling. I see a hard slog for Otto Normalverbraucher to survive rising petrol costs, rising energy costs, extra tax levies, and the Nebenkosten which unlike rents are not capped. So just who is doing so well in Germany ? It seems the Top Decile is doing fine but the rest of the population has been reamed.

It is so easy to say Germany ie. The Country benefits from a weak Euro to export - but the People who live, breathe and work - buy food and other imported goods now priced in Euros. If the weak Euro is good for Manufacturers it is awful for Consumers who now pay a higher price for food, foreign vacations, and imported goods from Club Med than they would do if they had D-Marks.

Germany is not in recession from a Corporation standpoint but it is from a Consumer/Worker standpoint because the Real Wages have been going backward since the Euro was introduced. Germans are Marxian Wage Slaves whose Surplus Value is being stolen by the Capitalists through the Exchange Rate
