Christian Glocker, Positive Growth Continues. Business Cycle Report of May 2018

WIFO Bulletin, 2018, 23(5), S.38-44
In the first quarter of 2018, the Austrian economy grew by 0.8 percent compared to the previous quarter, thus similar to the course of the previous year. Along with a buoyant domestic economy, that growth is underpinned by foreign trade, stimulated by a dynamic global economy. In line with that, the Austrian labour market is also continuing to show a positive trend.

Stefan Ederer, Austria's Economy Stays on the Growth Path. Economic Outlook for 2018 and 2019

WIFO Bulletin, 2018, 23(4), S.27-37
Lively business activity abroad is driving Austria's export industry and raises productive capacity utilisation, giving rise to buoyant investment. Private consumption will continue to support domestic production as income growth is set to pick up over the forecast period. Austrian GDP is projected to grow by 3.2 percent for this year and by 2.2 percent in 2019.

Stefan Ederer, Strong Growth Prospects for Austria's Economy. Economic Outlook for 2017 to 2019

WIFO Bulletin, 2018, 23(1), S.1-12
Austria's manufacturing sector is benefitting from buoyant international business activity. The high degree of productive capacity utilisation provides major stimulus for domestic investment. Private consumption also lends continued support to output growth, even if it does not give a strong additional momentum at the advanced stage of the cyclical upswing, as income growth remains moderate.

Marcus Scheiblecker, Global Economy in Best Shape. Business Cycle Report of November 2017

The Austrian economy continues its upswing. Sentiment indicators have reached record highs in the euro area and the EU as a whole. The US economy once again grew vigorously in the third quarter. In these economic regions, stock exchange prices continue their sharp upward trajectory. Emerging market economies participate in this currently robust global economic activity and report a further improvement in their economic performance.

Josef Baumgartner, Serguei Kaniovski, Hans Pitlik, Stefan Schiman, Significantly Improved Growth Prospects. Medium-term Forecast for the Austrian Economy until 2022

WIFO Bulletin, 2017, 22(16), S.155-172
Following the financial and economic crisis (GDP –3.8 percent in 2009) and the sluggish development in 2012-2015 (+0.7 percent p.a.), economic activity picked up significantly from mid-2016 onwards. For the years 2017 and 2018, the current forecast foresees an annual real GDP growth of 2¾ percent. In the medium term, an average growth of real GDP of 2 percent per year is expected (2013-2017 +1.2 percent p.a.), which is about ¼ percentage point higher than the average of the Euro area. The robust growth for the world economy has a stimulating effect on exports (+3.7 percent p.a.), which in turn has a positive effect on equipment investments. Private consumption is expected to increase by 1½ percent p.a. over the forecast period due to an increase in disposable income (2013-2017 +0.7 percent p.a.). The economic expansion combined with labour market policies ("Employment Bonus" and "Initiative 20,000"), will have a stronger positive effect on employment surpassing the dynamics of labour supply, resulting in a drop in unemployment. From 2020 onwards, labour supply is expected to again increase more strongly than labour demand, and as a result the unemployment rate is expected to rise from 8.0 percent in 2019 to 8.4 percent by the end of the forecast period. Inflationary pressure will remain moderate in the medium term, and the inflation differential to the Euro area average is expected to further decrease. The consumer price inflation will average of 1.9 percent p.a. On the basis of the projected business cycle and the assumed economic policy framework the overall government budget is expected to be balanced (both structurally and as defined according to Maastricht) from the middle of the forecast period onwards. As a result, the government debt ratio (total public debt as a percentage of nominal GDP) is projected to decline by around 17 percentage points to nearly 64 percent between 2017 and 2022.

Werner Hölzl, Thomas Leoni, International Unit Labour Cost Position in Manufacturing Deteriorated in 2016

WIFO Bulletin, 2017, 22(15), S.143-154
According to recent data, the Austrian economy experienced a deterioration in its international unit labour cost position for goods manufacturing in 2016, compared to the weighted average of its global trading partners, as well as in comparison to the EU trading partners and to Germany. This was mostly due to a higher rise in labour costs in Austria. In the long term, the Austrian unit labour cost position was comparatively stable, with a negative trend since 2013.

Marcus Scheiblecker, Strongest Economic Growth in Six Years. Economic Outlook for 2017 and 2018

WIFO Bulletin, 2017, 22(12), S.111-122
After an acceleration of economic activity in the first half of 2017, latest business surveys do not suggest a further strengthening for Austria. GDP is expected to grow by 2.8 percent in 2017, the highest rate in six years. Despite the appreciation of the euro and a slowing growth momentum in third countries, the euro area should keep a firm upward trend in 2018, driven by the expansionary monetary policy of the ECB and a still untightened fiscal stance. The Austrian economy may grow in 2018 at the same rate as in 2017. From a cyclical perspective, further extension of the current expansionary fiscal policy would not be appropriate.
