Stock markets, the economy and economic cycles as a reliable engine

Seldom before have developments in the stock markets, the economy and economic cycles influenced the development of society as a whole. Eachphase of the economic cycle produces new trends and evolving economic theories. Even the field of research responds directly to economic fluctuations. There is no questioning the fact that positive developments within the economy, booming economic cycles and solid stock markets have a positive impact on the development of society.

For this reason, entire branches of research are engaged in analyzing the economy, developments in the stock markets and economic cycles. With great interest, researchers continuously observe the individual phases of the economic cycles. Interestingly enough, the detailed examination of the economy, economic cycles and the stock markets in regular intervals is precisely what teaches us that prior conclusions and scientific findings regarding the stock market and economic cycle developments must be constantly corrected and enhanced.

When the stock market, and thus the economy as whole, experiences far-reaching, long term changes, experts never fail to reanalyze and reexamine heretofore irrevocable theories about stock markets and economic cycles

Triad serves as the engine of perpetual motion

The theory of perpetual motion is generally considered physically impossible under the laws of physics. If society is viewed in terms of perpetual motion though, it doesn't take long to realize that this triad, which consists of the stock markets, the economy and economic cycles, is a fixed component of the whole.

During the course of a detailed observation, one thing that quickly emerges is that this triad is much more than what an initial glance could reveal. The three parts of the triad, stock markets, the economy and economic cycles , are subject to periodic shifts. These cyclical changes not only influence one another. Radical shifts in stock market prices always correspond directly to changes in segments of a country's economy. In turn, this always impacts economic cycles.

If only one part of the triad undergoes change, this also affects the harmonious interaction of the stock markets, the economy and economic cycles. In turn this leads to changes within the respective society. All too often, the radical shifts of the past decades have dramatically demonstrated where they can lead to.

The economy, stock markets and economic cycles are also sensitive

We are conversely reminded that society is also subject to constant change. Attitudes, emotions and values are in a constant state of flux. Each of these changes has a direct impact on the economy. Negative sentiments directly influence the development of the stock markets and thus a country's entire economic cycle.

A country's overall political environment can have a devastating impact on its economy. Society pays for its mistakes and failures through a slow-down of the economy. Stock markets are likewise sensitive.

It comes as no surprise then that an entire armada of experts focuses their attention on the stock markets, our economy and how economic cycles develop. The economy is tied closely to the stock markets. The stock markets in turn drive economic cycles, which then influence the economy.

Theseamless interaction of the stock markets, the economy and economic cycles has yet to lose its fascination.

Is there a bubble in the art market?

Researchers at the University of Luxembourg are warning of an overheating art market, one of the fastest-growing investment sectors of the past decade, after applying a new bubble detection method analysing millions of auction records.

Few sectors of the market have rebounded as robustly as art – particularly contemporary art, which has doubled in value since the beginning of the financial...

Finance: Belief in higher returns from private equity may be misplaced

New research at the Luxembourg School of Finance suggests that investor belief in higher returns by investing in private equity investment funds may be misplaced, calling into question their rising popularity.

Many investors believe that higher returns can be achieved by investing in funds which buy firms not listed on stock markets (so-called private equity...

RWI/ISL Container Throughput Index: World Trade Remains Sluggish

In July, the Container Throughput Index of RWI and ISL softened from 118.6 (revised June value) to 118.4 points.

However, this is not a statistically significant decrease. The average amplitude of revision over the past years was 0.6 points; the June value was revised...

RWI/ISL-Container Throughput Index Indicating Ongoing Weakness in Global Container Trade

In June, the RWI/ISL Container Throughput Index declined once more, albeit by a small amount. From a (revised) 118.2 points the index softened to 118.1 points.

The index has now been falling since February 2015. The flash estimate for June is based on data for 41 ports, which combined account for almost 73% of the...

RWI/ISL Container Throughput Index: Setback for World Trade

In May, the RWI/ISL Container Throughput Index shrank by almost two points from a (revised) 119.8 to 117.9 points. The index thus relapsed to a low level last seen in 2014.

Declining port handling volumes have been reported predominantly in some Asian ports as well as in the Baltic Sea.

New research shows positive welfare effects of natural resource extraction in Africa

Ruthless exploitation, environmental disasters and refugees. That is a common narrative of the consequences of the extraction of natural resources in Africa. A new dissertation from the School of Business, Economics and Law at the University of Gothenburg gives a more nuanced picture. Stronger labor market participation for women, more gender equality and halving infant death are also part of the recent expansion of mining in Africa.

“There are, of course, lots of problems with extractive industries – oil, natural gas and mineral mining – in Africa. But I have explored welfare determinants...

Im Focus: Computational high-throughput screening finds hard magnets containing less rare earth elements

Permanent magnets are very important for technologies of the future like electromobility and renewable energy, and rare earth elements (REE) are necessary for their manufacture. The Fraunhofer Institute for Mechanics of Materials IWM in Freiburg, Germany, has now succeeded in identifying promising approaches and materials for new permanent magnets through use of an in-house simulation process based on high-throughput screening (HTS). The team was able to improve magnetic properties this way and at the same time replaced REE with elements that are less expensive and readily available. The results were published in the online technical journal “Scientific Reports”.

The starting point for IWM researchers Wolfgang Körner, Georg Krugel, and Christian Elsässer was a neodymium-iron-nitrogen compound based on a type of...

Im Focus: Atomic precision: technologies for the next-but-one generation of microchips

In the Beyond EUV project, the Fraunhofer Institutes for Laser Technology ILT in Aachen and for Applied Optics and Precision Engineering IOF in Jena are developing key technologies for the manufacture of a new generation of microchips using EUV radiation at a wavelength of 6.7 nm. The resulting structures are barely thicker than single atoms, and they make it possible to produce extremely integrated circuits for such items as wearables or mind-controlled prosthetic limbs.

In 1965 Gordon Moore formulated the law that came to be named after him, which states that the complexity of integrated circuits doubles every one to two...
