Germany’s Bundesbank has lowered its growth and inflation outlook, blaming an unexpectedly low rate of price increases for services and industrial goods and a

The central bank's inflation projection for 2016 has been cut to 0.2 per cent from 1.1 per cent, while next year's forecast has been lowered from 2 per cent to 1.5 per cent.
