24. German, French economies shrink

http://www.irishtimes.com/newspaper/breaking/2013/0214/breaking10.html

Europe's two largest economies, Germany and France, both shrunk markedly in the last three months of 2012, suggesting the euro zone has slipped deeper into recession and throwing a first quarter recovery for the region into doubt.

The German economy contracted by 0.6 per cent on the quarter, official data showed today, marking its worst performance since the global financial crisis was raging in 2009.

France's 0.3 per cent fall was also a touch worse than expectations.

Worryingly for Berlin, it was export performance - the motor of its economy - that did most of the damage.
