Bundesbank Casts Doubt on German Rebound

In report released today, bank says nation may not meet earlier projections for recovery in second half of 2014.

The Bundesbank said geopolitical tensions may impede a rebound of the German economy, Europe’s largest, after it contracted in the second quarter.

“The economic outlook for the German economy has clouded over in the middle of the year in response to unfavorable international news,” the Frankfurt-based central bank said in its monthly report published today. “Expectations for a strengthening of economic momentum in the second half of 2014 underlying the spring projections are called into question by current data.”
