Summary:

This paper reviews economic developments in Germany during 1990–95. In early 1995, both western and eastern Germany seemed well poised to continue on their respective growth paths. However, the economy was then confronted by a sharp nominal appreciation of the deutsche mark—translating into a 5½ percent real effective appreciation between December 1994 and June 1995, most of it during February—which brought with it significant risks to exports and thereby to investment and to the recovery in general.
