View on USA and Latin America

The economic situation in the world is relatively stable in February compared to January 2022. In Euroland and al-so in Germany, we measure a slight improvement in the situation and expectations. In Asia, the picture is mixed. The development in the USA is problematic. Here the overall index is falling for the third time in a row, which is due to the decline in expectations. The signals we are receiving from Latin America are encouragingly positive.
