Headlines of the month

  • The economic momentum in the euro zone is weakening somewhat. The overall index dropped by one point to 31.9 points in February.
  • While the current situation remains strong, expectations are weakening slightly. This is particularly clear in Ger-many, the locomotive of the Euro zone economy.
  • Internationally, the economy remains strong. The latecomers Eastern Europe and Latin America are clearly im-proving, and Asia ex Japan is also in good shape. The US can also improve again, as investors are increasingly con-sidering the effects of the tax reform. Japan, on the other hand, shows a slight economic loss of momentum like Euroland.
