Economic Growth in Germany Hindered by Experts.

Germany’s economic research institutes have collectively downgraded their GDP outlook for the country, citing declining growth forces and high energy prices as contributing factors. The group of leading economic think tanks released their report on the German economy, revising their previous growth forecast from 1.3% to just 0.1%. They emphasized the importance of consumer purchasing power in improving the economic outlook.

According to the report, Germany’s economy is showing signs of weakness, with low domestic demand and 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. High energy prices are also affecting the competitiveness of energy-intensive goods, a key strength of the German economy. Despite these challenges, experts anticipate a recovery beginning in the spring, although momentum may not be significant.

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.
