Economic Sluggishness Looms Over Germany as GDP Outlook Plummets

According to a new report by five of Germany’s leading economic research institutes, the country’s economy is facing significant challenges. The group of experts downgraded their GDP outlook for Germany from 1.3% to just 0.1%, citing declining growth forces and overlapping economic and structural factors contributing to sluggish overall economic development.

Despite a recovery expected to begin in the spring, experts cautioned that the momentum may not be significant due to high energy prices affecting the competitiveness of energy-intensive goods, a key strength of the German economy. Additionally, Germany’s economy is facing challenges due to a sharp tightening of fiscal policy by the government in preparation for the return of the constitutional debt brake, which restricts the issuance of new debt.

The “diagnosis” was compiled by five prominent German economic research institutes, including DIW in Berlin, IfW in Kiel, IWH in Halle, RWI in Essen, and Ifo in Munich. They emphasized the importance of consumer purchasing power in improving the economic outlook for Germany.
