Germany getting its act together?Report Date: 5th September, 2022
Germany’s SPD-Green-FDP coalition has announced a new support package for beleaguered households and SMEs struggling with surging energy prices.
The headline total is equivalent to 1.8% of GDP. But a lot of the detail is missing and the timing vague. Some of it is contingent on forthcoming discussions with German states and some on related EU-level negotiations.
At the margin it should help to mitigate recessionary pressures. For now, though, we remain neutral on the euro and out of EU financial assets.SUBSCRIBE
