    Key Quotes

    “Germany has been running a tight budget over the years, but the German government has room to spend more: tax revenues have been growing at a decent clip of 5% last year, although this pace has slowed since the fourth quarter.

    Although the Germans are generally unwilling to be drawn into budgetary stimulus, the 2017 budget looks set to be one of the more buoyant in the last five years.
