Link to article: German business sentiment ‘jubilant’: Ifo / Ifo projects stronger German economic growth
Any other similar article, no matter the date, would fit the suggested talking points. Articles which talk about the Ifo report are great because there’s a little bit of analysis and a bunch of figures/facts you can use. So, Germany’s expectation of the future are higher than ever before, unemployment is low and falling, inflation might start picking up as well. Can we use economic concepts to explain what is happening in the country? How are the main economic variables connected?
