Bundesbank projection: moderate growth for the German economy

07.06.2019

According to the Bundesbank’s current projection, economic activity in Germany will experience a marked slowdown. This is primarily due to the ongoing downturn in industry, which is suffering from weak growth in exports. However, the experts at the Bundesbank do not currently expect a significant, more persistent decline in economic output.

The Bundesbank began issuing the new €100 and €200 banknotes on 28 May. They both incorporate two new and innovative security features, making them even more difficult to counterfeit, says Johannes Beermann, the Bundesbank’s Executive Board member responsible for cash management. The Europa series is thus complete.

Bundesbank President Jens Weidmann says that non-standard monetary policy measures can have a variety of effects on income and wealth distribution. “Much like conventional interest rate policy, the non-standard measures are more likely to have reduced income inequality,” he said in a speech in Hamburg.
