Beruht das schwache Wirtschaftswachstum in den USA auf einer Innovationsschwäche oder auf zu geringen Investitionen? Edgar Walk nennt eine sinkende Innovationsrate als wichtigste Determinante eines zurückgehenden Produktionswachstums. Das überrascht angesichts der US-amerikanischen Innovationsführerschaft in der Digitalisierung. Der Chefvolkswirt Metzler Asset Management zeigt in seinem aktuellen Kapitalmarktausblick aber mögliche Erklärungen. Zudem empfiehlt er der EZB ein stärkeres Erwartungsmanagement in Sachen Inflation, ohne die Konjunktur aus dem Blick zu verlieren.

Lesen Sie mehr dazu im aktuellen Kapitalmarktausblick auf die KW 30.
