Positive Economic Outlook for Germany

ZEW president, Achim Wambach recently mentioned, “The economic forecast improves for Germany.” He attributes this positive change to the fact that over 50% of survey participants anticipate the European Central Bank (ECB) to execute interest rate cuts in the first half of the year.
