She is one of Germany's most powerful women, Birgit Steinborn, deputy head of Siemens supervisory board. We want to know how and we'll talk about the expectations of the up and coming generation of women.
Eating without paying the bill - your average German would say that's no way to behave. And anyone who runs up debts should be made to pay them back, right? We visit a Greek restaurant in Germany to ask the diners what they think: should the EU provide aid to Greece or force Athens to continue on the path of austerity?
The idea of a possible Greek exit from the eurozone first surfaced five years ago. But it never occurred. Since then, Greece has gone through five years of painful austerity and its economy has shrunk by around a quarter. The country's national debt has risen and the country remains dependent on outside aid.
Would a Greek exit from the eurozone provide the solution for Athens? Financial expert Markus Henn doesn't think so. He believes without the euro, Greece would find it even more difficult to reduce its debt and build up its economy. What's needed, he says, is a change of mentality: a realization that tax evasion is a complete no-go.
