Central Bank: Dutch Economy to Shrink Further Next Year

The Dutch Central Bank expects the Dutch economy to shrink by 0.6% next year. This follows an estimated decline in the economy in 2012 of 1%.
Unemployment, which at present is 5.2%, is likely to increase to 6.2% of the professional population in 2013 and to 6.7% in 2014. The budget deficit is likely to be 3.5% in both 2013 and 2014. That is above the European maximum norm of 3%. The bank considers that the government will have to introduce further budget cuts beyond the large ones already planned.,tekort+boven+europese+norm&hl=iw&tbo=u&source=univ&tbm=nws&sa=X&ei=cTbIUK7FI4-q0AW15oDQCg&ved=0CCsQqAI&bav=on.2,or.r_gc.r_pw.&fp=a93c0b2002fd6e05&bpcl=39650382&biw=1024&bih=57
