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
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.
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.
This area provides up-to-date and interesting developments from the world of business, economics and finance.
A wealth of information is available on topics ranging from stock markets, consumer climate, labor market policies, bond markets, foreign trade and interest rate trends to stock exchange news and economic forecasts.

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...23.07.2015 | Read more
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.23.06.2015 | Read more
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...02.06.2015 | Read more
In April, the Container Throughput Index of RWI and ISL increased slightly to 120.1 points from a revised 119.9 points in March.
This points towards an ongoing moderate expansion of world trade. The March value was adjusted upwards by a rather large amplitude of 0.8 points as special...21.05.2015 | Read more
It's a simple enough question: how long does a typical business have to live? Economists have been thinking about that one for decades without a particularly clear answer, but new research by scientists at the Santa Fe Institute in New Mexico reveals a surprising insight: publicly-traded firms die off at the same rate regardless of their age or economic sector.
Companies come and go for a variety of reasons. Some are bought, some merge with others, and some go out of business completely. There's no shortage of...02.04.2015 | Read more
- Share of innovative companies falls to just 28%
- Weak economic activity in the eurozone and intense price competition hamper progress
- Sales and employment opportunities remain unexploited

The Container Throughput Index of the Rheinisch-Westfälisches Institut für Wirtschaftsforschung (RWI) and the Institute of Shipping Economics and Logistics (ISL) declined again from (revised) 123.2 to 123.1 points in January.
For the previous month in December, almost all data are available now. These data show at least that the decline was less clear than in the flash estimate...19.02.2015 | Read more

The more electronics steer, accelerate and brake cars, the more important it is to protect them against cyber-attacks. That is why 15 partners from industry and academia will work together over the next three years on new approaches to IT security in self-driving cars. The joint project goes by the name Security For Connected, Autonomous Cars (SecForCARs) and has funding of €7.2 million from the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research. Infineon is leading the project.
Vehicles already offer diverse communication interfaces and more and more automated functions, such as distance and lane-keeping assist systems. At the same...
A research team led by physicists at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) has developed molecular nanoswitches that can be toggled between two structurally different states using an applied voltage. They can serve as the basis for a pioneering class of devices that could replace silicon-based components with organic molecules.
The development of new electronic technologies drives the incessant reduction of functional component sizes. In the context of an international collaborative...

At this year's LASYS, the LZH will exhibit light-based processes such as cutting, welding, ablation and structuring as well as additive manufacturing for...
There are videos on the internet that can make one marvel at technology. For example, a smartphone is casually bent around the arm or a thin-film display is rolled in all directions and with almost every diameter. From the user's point of view, this looks fantastic. From a professional point of view, however, the question arises: Is that already possible?
At Display Week 2018, scientists from the Fraunhofer Institute for Applied Polymer Research IAP will be demonstrating today’s technological possibilities and...
