BERLIN May 15 German Finance Minister Wolfgang
Schaeuble said on Thursday he saw no risk of deflation at a time
when euro zone inflation has been in what the European Central
Bank calls "the danger zone".
Speaking after data showed Germany's economy doubled its
growth to the highest level in three years in the first quarter,
Schaeuble added that everything pointed to a broad-based pickup.
International Monetary Fund chief economist Olivier
Blanchard said on Wednesday the Fund saw a 25 percent chance of
the euro zone slipping into deflation by the end of 2015.
