I just got off a flight where I spent an hour listening to this podcast: What Are the Secrets of the German Economy — and Should We Steal Them?
One of the key themes is that Germany has a “stakeholder economy”, rather than a “shareholder economy”, which is one way to describe the Anglo-Saxon model.
There’s also a lot of discussion around cities and spatial economics.
For instance, there’s an argument that WW2 forced a decentralization of the German economy. Germany is one of the rare examples where a country’s busiest airport (Frankfurt) is not located in the country’s biggest city (Berlin).
Thanks Daniel for passing this podcast along. I enjoyed it.
