Economic growth across the 19-country eurozone slowed in the third quarter to its weakest level for over four years [0.2 percent], likely due to the impact of new emissions standards for cars, particularly in Germany, and a stagnating Italian economy. . . .
The quarterly performance is the worst since the second quarter of 2014, when growth was also 0.2 percent and hobbled by wide-ranging debt problems across the single currency bloc, notably in Greece.
