German Economy Remaining Robust in Uncertain Times: DIW Economic Outlook

DIW Weekly Report, 2018, vol. 8, issue 36, 334-337

Abstract: The German economy will keep on growing amid risks although growth will slow down somewhat. GDP will continue to grow noticeably at 1.8 percent this year, 1.7 percent next year, and 1.8 percent in 2020. Private household incomes in particular—and thus consumption as well—are boosting growth, as the labor markets are improving: the unemployment rate will fall from 5.2 percent this year to well below five percent in 2020 and lead to stronger wage increases. However, inflation will remain moderate at almost two percent.
