Germany Reliant on Consumers for Growth as Investment Slips
German themed bars of novelty soap sit displayed for sale in a store at the Mall of Berlin, in Berlin, Germany, on Tuesday, Nov. 25, 2014.
Germany relied on domestic consumers for economic growth last quarter as investment fell, putting the strength of the nation’s recovery at risk.
Gross domestic product in Europe’s largest economy gained 0.1 percent in the three months through September, the Federal Statistics Office said yesterday, confirming a Nov. 14 estimate. Private consumption climbed 0.7 percent, while capital investment sank 0.9 percent.

Donovan Tyee is the 11-year old creative genius behind Toil & Trouble Bath on Etsy and I have to tell you about his bath shop (UH YEAH, those are SOAPS).
I recently read about Donovan and his supermom Casey Smith on Soapqueen.com, and I was completely blown away by their selflessness and creativity. Read their interview here! Half the proceeds of their Pie Soaps (currently available in Peach (pictured above), Coconut Custard and Banana Cream), and a portion of their candle sales go toward the Supportive Housing Coalition of New Mexico. And if you follow Toil & Trouble on Facebook, you’ll see how frequently they donate their goods and time to charitable causes!
Casey has been a long time soap-maker and started teaching Donovan how to soap as part of his Math and Science lessons. They’re a pretty dynamic duo and their shop reflects that, offering a ton of products for kids/kids-at-heart (Sci-fi and Superhero soaps) and adults (Mocha Frappuccino body butter made with real coffee bean butter) alike! Plus, they also cater to vegans and those with fragrance and skin sensitivities!
This guy is already going places, but please spread the word! Favorite their shop on Etsy, and give them a like on Facebook. Let’s get him to 300 sales by New Years and get him one step closer to his dream of visiting the museums of France and drawing under the Eiffel Tower! <3
