1 in 6 German Firms cut Production & Employment

https://oilprice.com/Latest-Energy-News/World-News/High-Ener…
One of every six German industrial companies feels forced to reduce production due to high energy prices, a survey by the Association of German Chambers of Industry and Commerce, DIHK, showed on Monday.

Nearly a quarter of the companies forced to reduce production have already done so, and another one-quarter are in the process of scaling back production due to sky-high energy prices, according to the survey of 3,500 companies from all sectors and regions in Germany.

This is also a big excuse for the German planned shift to supply side econ. Layoffs and streamline industries. No country needs a brewery in every small town.

Yeah let’s make all beer in huge breweries. Then they will just like the USA. Homogenization-that’s the ticket!

tj,

On a bus out of Dublin airport for downtown talking to the woman next to me. She is a German accountant. Her take most of those breweries are not making money and taking up resources. It is a waste. The German economy has a wealth of problems from demand side econ. Supply side early on is a necessary evil. Later on it is a huge set of never ending lies.

Meanwhile as Germany needs the US to be working with supply side econ for Germany to have demand side econ, we now need Germany to have a big dose of supply side econ for us to have our welcome dose of demand side econ.

The western world can not all of us have demand side econ at the same time. We can not all profit.

I take a fair number of road trips and make a point of asking for local beers. These craft breweries have been sprouting up like mushrooms after a rain.

I vote with my pocketbook for ‘a brewery in every small town’.

Did she explain how they stay in business?

BTW Ireland — voted for small microbreweries when a tax break for small brewers was put into effect in 2005 by the Irish government

I agree. That doesn’t sound like enough at all.
There should be a minimum requirement for small towns.

==========================================================

All the EU countries unemployment is on the rise. You really are anti-Germany for who knows what reasons. You keep posting false information about Germany. Lets look at the facts on unemployment in EU:

Germany - 3.6%
France - 8.1
Italy - 9.4
Spain - 15.3
Sweden - 9.0
Norway - 5.0
Switzerland - 5.2

DB2,

She means they are up and down profit wise. The IRR is up and down. She is right the breweries are a waste of resources often. But this was not only the literal I set up. The German economy could have better return rates.

I agree. That doesn’t sound like enough at all.

Without resorting to Google to double check, I can count 7 within about a 3 mile radius of my home (Golden, CO)…and that’s not counting Coors.

The opposite is true.
What we do not need is the same beer in every town. Locally produced food and drink may not be efficient enough to pass the accountants test, but they sure taste better. We need less accountants and more craftsmanship.
