HUDSON INSTITUTE CENTER FOR EMPLOYMENT POLICY
Germany’s economy, one of the worst hit by the global downturn, is forecast to show a contraction of five percent in 2009 and stagnation in 2010. Germany’s most successful exports are facing a sudden collapse in demand. In addition to stimulus measures, the government is attempting structural reform of the labor market and the banking system as well as measures to encourage entrepreneurship. Klaus F. Zimmermann, President of the German Institute for Economic Research and a regular adviser to German governments and to the President of the European Commission, discussed the political consequences in the context of the upcoming German elections in September 2009.
