Almost 270.000 child benefit recipients live abroad

A record number of foreign child benefit recipients and indications of fraud traps increase the pressure on the federal government to reform.

"In june 2018, 268.336 children living outside germany in the european union or the european economic area receive child benefits," a spokesman for the federal finance ministry said in response to a question from the german press agency. This is an increase of 10.4 percent since the end of 2017. At that time there were 243.234 recipients in the EU abroad. In germany, more than 2.7 million children from other countries receive child benefits.

The topic has been on the minds for a long time, but is now gaining momentum as it involves hundreds of millions of euros a year. Several oberburg masters speak of an alarming increase of migration into the german social system. "The federal government is sleeping through this problem, it must finally do something about the fact that there are poverty refugees in europe," duisburg’s mayor soren link (SPD) told dpa. This poses risks for social cohesion.

New dispute over capping bonuses in the eu

New dispute over capping bonuses in the eu

The european finance ministers approved the compromise with the european parliament on tuesday. But under pressure from the uk, they want to further clarify "technical details" with the people’s representatives in the coming weeks. Parliamentary president martin schulz was disappointed in brussel: a single member state could not block legislation.

German finance minister wolfgang schauble (CDU) said: "it wasn’t an easy road. We have made good progress."He defended his course of not having a qualified majority vote on such fundamental issues. Once the details have been worked out, it should be possible to have the british on board as well and thus reach an amicable solution. "The united kingdom is in a difficult phase of domestic politics."We must not strengthen the political forces that want to leave the EU".

"We have a broad majority in favor of the compromise package," summed up ireland’s head of department michael noonan, who currently leads the european treasurers. The permanent EU ambassadors of the 27 EU countries were instructed to stop the negotiations with the people’s representatives. Several heads of department support the irish course. "This is regulatory policy, and that is what is being done here, no more and no less," summed up luc frieden from luxembourg.

Coalition and spd: karlsruhe will approve esm

coalition and spd: karlsruhe will approve esm

With a view to the decision expected on wednesday from karlsruhe, finance minister wolfgang schauble (CDU) told "bild am sonntag": "so far, the federal constitutional court has never judged the course of european integration to be against the constitution."

CSU politician peter gauweiler filed a new emergency motion in karlsruhe a few days before the decision was made. The decision by the european central bank (ECB) to help ailing states with additional purchases of government bonds in the event of a request for help from the euro bailout fund has fundamentally changed the assessment of the bailout measures, argues gauweiler.

Meanwhile, neither spain nor italy have submitted requests to allow additional bond purchases. In this case, the countries had to submit in whole or in part to the strict rules of the ESM. Madrid is seen as the first candidate for a request for help. But financial experts in spain are confident that the ECB decision alone will cause interest rates on spanish bonds to fall further on the capital market. This reduces the need to submit a request for assistance to the euro rescue fund.
