In this Handelsblatt report, Peter Ross Range takes an in-depth look at the so called “German Model” of economic and political success. Why, amidst all of the negative issues currently surrounding European nations – and for that matter much of the world – does Germany seem to be doing so well? By speaking to a number of individuals that help devise and run these seemingly successful policies in Germany, Mr. Ross Range hopes to find out what they are doing right, and what America may be able to learn from these experiences to address its own internal issues.
Peter Ross Range is a journalist who writes frequently on Germany and German affairs. He also coauthored a New York Times Op-Ed with AICGS President Jack Janes entitled Can Joachim Gauck Make Germany Likable?
