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.

Europe's microtechnology industry is attuned to growth

Global economic, social and political developments as well as technological disruptions like the digital transformation do not leave the representatives of the European microtechnology industry unaffected. Nevertheless, growth forecasts for the next three years are distinctively positive. More than 80 percent of the companies expect to increase sales in the period from 2017 to 2019. The number of employees is also expected to rise in more than three-quarters of the companies.

Preferential trade agreements enhance global trade at the expense of its resilience

The global commodity trade is a complex system where its network structure, which may arise from bilateral and multilateral agreements, affects its growth and resilience. At time of economic shocks, redundancy in this system is vital to the resilience of growth.

How Strong Brands Translate into Money

Brand maintenance is not only a matter for the Marketing Department. The colleagues in Finance should also be interested in a strong brand image. After all, it will help them to reduce the company’s debt ratio and improve its credit rating. These are the findings of Alexander Himme, professor at Kühne Logistics University in Hamburg, and Marc Fischer, professor at the University of Cologne, as published in their study entitled "Financial Brand Value Chain".

The Marketing Department’s main goals are to make brands more recognizable and increase sales. The Finance Department’s work is aimed at safeguarding the...
