The Secret Of Germany's Success2013092120130922 (WS)"Should the rest of Europe be more like Germany?

The biggest financial stories and why they matter to us all.

Simon Jack is joined in Hamburg by Jens Assman from the Hamburg Chamber of Commerce, journalist and social commentator, Silke Burmester, and in London, Huw Pill, chief Europe economist with Goldman Sachs.
