It’ll be fun to see Willy Hutton work on this

No upside surprise in Germany. Real GDP fell by 0.1% q-o-q in Q2, decelerating from a 0.4% rise in Q1.

Willy uses a recession in England to say England must be more like Germany. Will he use a recession in Germany to argue that England must be less like Germany?
