Joint Economic Forecast Spring 2014
Apr 10, 2014: The German economy is experiencing an upturn in spring 2014. Gross domestic product (GDP) is expected to grow by 1.9 percent this year. The 68 percent projection interval ranges from 1.2 percent to 2.6 percent. Domestic demand is the main driver of growth. Consumer prices will increase by a moderate 1.3 percent in 2014. The number of persons in employment looks set to rise steeply once again in 2014. Economic activity, however, will have to weather an economic policy headwind. The entitlement to a full pension as of 63 years is a step in the wrong direction and the introduction of the minimum wage will curb the rise in employment in 2015. Details
The Joint Economic Forecast Autumn 2014 will be presented at 11 a.m. CEST on 9 October 2014 at a federal press conference and will be available online at this time. read on Next Internet Publication Date of the Joint Economic Forecast: 9 October 2014 11:00 AM CEST
