Gross Domestic product

German economy grew 1.5% in 2018

According to first calculations of the Federal Statistical Office (Destatis), the price adjusted gross domestic product (GDP) was 1.5% higher in 2018 than in the previous year. The German economy thus grew the ninth year in a row, although growth has lost momentum. In the previous two years, the price adjusted GDP had increased by 2.2% each. A longer-term view shows that German economic growth in 2018 exceeded the average growth rate of the last ten years (+1.2%).

EU-Stability pact

The European procedure in the event of an excessive deficit

According to the Treaty establishing the European Community, the member states of the EU are obliged to avoid excessive government deficits (Article 104). That obligation was confirmed by the European Stability and Growth Pact when the EURO was introduced as a common currency in the participating member states. If certain reference values are exceeded in a member state, the excessive deficit procedure, as it is called, is triggered, at the end of which fines amounting to billions may have to be paid.
