Inflation in Germany
Frankfurt - AFP

Inflation in Germany, Europe's biggest economy, remained stuck at its lowest level in four and a half years in August, according to final data on Thursday.
Confirming a preliminary flash estimate released at the end of last month, the federal statistics office Destatis calculated that German inflation this month stood at just 0.8 percent year-on-year, unchanged from July.
The last time inflation in Germany was lower was in February 2010.
Inflation has been unusually low across the 18-nation eurozone, fuelling concern the region could slip into deflation -- a sustained and widespread drop in prices that hampers economic activity and threatens job losses.
While falling prices may sound good for consumers, deflation can trigger a vicious spiral where businesses and households delay purchases, throttling demand and causing companies to lay off workers.
Such concerns persuaded the European Central Bank to cut interest rates last week and unveil other measures to ease monetary conditions in the single currency area.
Using the Harmonised Index of Consumer Prices (HICP) -- the yardstick used by the ECB -- inflation in Germany also stood at 0.8 percent in August, far below the bank's annual inflation target of just below 2.0 percent.
