According to a report in the “Bild” newspaper, Federal Economics Minister Robert Habeck (Greens) expects a recession and persistently high inflation in Germany for the coming year – but only a small increase in unemployment.

Federal Minister of Economics Robert Habeck (Greens) and his ministry expect inflation to remain high and an economic slump in 2023. Prices would rise even more than this year, but wages should also be higher. But unemployment in Germany will also increase, the ministry predicts in its “autumn projection”. The document is available to the “Bild” newspaper.

According to “Bild”, leading traffic light politicians also assume that the federal government will have to initiate further relief for citizens in the coming year.
