This is the key result of the ZEW-PwC China Economic Barometer in the third quarter of 2014. The ZEW-PwC China Economic Barometer surveys executives of German firms in China about their expectations regarding the overall macroeconomic development, the development of the legal and regulatory environment, as well as investment and merger activities in various industries. read more

Survey Among Financial Market Experts - Altogether Rather Low Risk of Recession in Germany

In January, ZEW asked financial market experts to assess the risk of a decline in German GDP in the first quarter of 2012. According to the experts, this risk has increased since the last interview October 2011. But still, the more popular view among the respondents is that there will be at least a small positive growth rate of the German GDP during this year’s first three months. The experts are more optimistic about the second quarter 2012. They consider the ehances of a positive growth of the German GDP higher than for the ongoing first quarter. These are the findings of a survey among approximately 200 financial market experts, conducted by the Centre for European Economic Research (ZEW) in January 2012. read more
