Berlin, Germany - People pose for photos in front of a painting in the largest remaining part of the former Berlin Wall in Berlin, German, on Tuesday Oct 18, 2022. The German government and leading economists say that Germany is heading toward a recession. The economy ministry expects Germany's gross domestic product to grow by 1.4% this year and then decline by 0.4% next year. That's a far cry from its estimates in late April when it had forecast 2.2% growth in 2022 and 2.5% next year. This scenario could very soon apply to Germany and elsewhere in Europe because high energy prices for are taking up too much purchasing power — money that consumers then lack elsewhere. The painting features former Soviet leader Leonid Brezhnev kissing his East German counterpart Erich Honecker (R) on a segment of the East Side Gallery in Berlin. (Jeremy Chan/EYEPRESS)
