Nordea’s economic outlook – September $

Since the May issue of Economic Outlook we have seen increasing signs of growth having peaked this time around. Especially in the US and China there are clear signs of a slowdown. The Euro area, on the other hand, is still steaming ahead. The main reason is that the German growth engine has finally shifted into a higher gear supported by the sharp EUR weakening earlier this year. Normally, when the US economy slows down, the European economy will also slow down after a few quarters. Therefore, we expect Euro-area growth to slow towards the end of 2010 when the individual countries’ announced fiscal policy tightening takes effect.
