Germany’s Economy: Is the Crown Slipping?

BBC’s “In the Balance” is a weekly discussion show on BBC World Service radio. I recently participated in a discussion round about the German economy.

 

Programme Preview:

Germany’s economy is teetering on the brink of a new recession – we ask what is Berlin’s plan to turn things around and will it do anything to help the rest of the Eurozone? Ed Butler speaks to the German Deputy Finance Minister Steffen Kampeter and discusses the issues with Marcel Fratzscher, head of the German Institute for Economic Research; Philippe Legrain, a visiting senior fellow at the London School of Economics’ European Institute, and Christian Schulz, senior economist at the German bank, Berenberg.
