Europe macroeconomic model analysis

The two most important economic indicators of the Europe economy are real economic growth expectations and inflation. MacroVar uses Europe Manufacturing ESI Order Books to gauge economic growth expectations and Europe Manufacturing ESI Selling Price expectations of next months to gauge inflation expectations. Europe’s economy is healthy when it generates stable economic growth with low inflation. Policymakers (the government and the central bank) use fiscal and monetary policy to inject liquidity during slowdowns (to solve weak economic growth) and withdraw liquidity from an overheating economy (to solve high inflation).

The four economic environments

There are 4 economic environments based on economic growth and inflationary conditions. Financial assets are affected by economic growth and inflation expectations as explained in the diagram below.
