Newsletter of February 2016

We help make complex economic dynamics transparent and understandable. The project examines the causes and effects of economic trends, as well as the connections linking one trend to another.



Departure from the Schengen Agreement

The long-term reintroduction of border controls within Europe would reduce economic growth throughout Europe. Up to the year 2025 for Germany alone a decline in growth can be expected amounting to a minimum of 77 billions from 2016 to 2025. In a pessimistic scenario these losses could even sum up to about 235 billion euros within the next 10 years.
