DWS, ESB Business School publish origins of euro crisis
DWS Global Financial Institute and ESB Business School, Reutlingen University, have jointly published a White Paper into the root causes of the European sovereign debt crisis.
ESB professor Bodo Herzog, together with DWS Investments’ chief economist Johannes Müller looked at the euro crisis through analysis of how foreign debt holdings have negatively impacted domestic growth of European states.
One key finding is that while contagion was felt, not all states fell to the debt crisis for the same reasons and causes.
The analysis has also led to the development of an “Investors’ Toobox”, to support decision making by financial professionals, including asset managers active in the sovereign bond markets.
Müller said: “The white paper offers a comprehensive view of all aspects of the eurozone crisis, unlike current financial markets or media discussions wherein only one aspect of the crisis, such as the debt banking or competitiveness issue is highlighted.”
