New Government’s Policies Give the Thriving German Economy an Additional Boost

DIW Weekly Report, 2018, vol. 8, issue 10/11, 102-105

Abstract: The German economy will grow by 2.4 percent this year, especially due to strong foreign demand. Brisk investment activity continues in this economic climate; stimulus from foreign trade, however, is weakening somewhat. Despite strong consumer demand in the coming quarters, employment and economic output growth are losing momentum. However, stimulus measures from the new federal government will increase income and thus private households’ consumption. With 1.9 percent growth in 2019, overall economic capacity will remain well utilized.
