Cameron demands EU reforms - OECD drops world GDP forecast - Venezuela hikes fuel price
DW Business (02/19/2016)
German gross domestic product (GDP) grew by 1.9 percent in 2016, the highest rate in five years, government figures show. Consumer spending and the ongoing real estate boom are keeping the economy on track.
Britain's upcoming departure from the European Union has prompted the International Monetary Fund (IMF) to cut its global growth forecast for the next two years - the fifth time it has dialed back estimates in 15 months.
If she manages to hobble on, British PM Theresa May will face an economy in a delicate state, even before we start talking about Brexit. The choice appears to be ongoing austerity or quasi-Keynesian reflation.
