The Euro Area economy has been benefiting from a cyclical recovery with improving consumer spending, early signs of wage growth, a muted inflation outlook despite a moderate increase in oil prices, and improving manufacturing and exports. Despite the Greek crisis, Europe’s economy remains in a fairly solid recovery territory. A Greek exit may cause some ripple in financial markets but its repercussions in Europe and beyond are not likely to be long-lasting.
