  • German headline inflation to first stay near current level of 1.8pct and then decline around year’s end due to a base effect.
  • The German economy remains in a strong upturn
  • The order situation at German industrial firms is “excellent”
  • Monetary policy makers should consider the possible repercussions for their own price and financial stability when making decisions that impact the exchange rates and capital flows of emerging economies
  • Private consumption could ease back but no lasting deterioration seen
