Schweizer Wirtschaft auf Expansionskurs



This text presents the economic forecast of the KOF Swiss Economic Institute at ETH Zurich on 23 September 2013. After an introduction describing the starting points and crucial assumptions underlying the forecast, we summarise the key results for Switzerland. Then we turn to the international economy and its effects on Switzerland and the Swiss economy in detail. For the latter, we forecast the main demand components of GDP as well as important macroeconomic prices and numbers, such as employment and unemployment, the price level and the exchange rate. In the 2013–2015 period covered by this forecast, we expect robust GDP growth along with a positive evolution of average per capita income and a cyclical peak during the winter of 2014/2015.
