Ifo Institute: Rising oil and gas prices are draining billions from the German economy

Rising oil and gas prices are draining billions of euros from the German economy, the Ifo Institute said on Tuesday.

The economic think tank estimated that real income losses for the current year will total around 64 billion euros ($63.95 billion), or 1.8% of the country’s economic output, while the losses incurred last year were more than 35 billion euros, or 1%. of GDP.

“We estimate that next year we will see losses of 9 billion euros or 0.2 percent of economic output,” said Timo Wollmershäuser, Ifo’s head of forecasts.

“Together, this gives us a real income loss of almost 110 billion euros, or 3.0 percent of annual economic output, over these three years. The only time this figure was higher was during the second oil crisis of 1979–81 while the loss in economic production was 4 percent.
