Germany is the most populous country in Europe, and it’s biggest economy. Yet how much do we know about their society, and attitudes? I imagine the answer is, no, I don’t know much about them, but I do like their cars.
We know much about France and Spain, primarily because we Brits are frequent visitors, and in some cases holiday home owners. Many of us, sadly, are not fluent in French or Spanish, though we’ve all probably got a good smattering of words and phrases in their languages. Of German, I guess, few of us have even a smattering.
There is a splendid source of up-to-date news and opinion on German business, culture, and politics, all written for global consumption. Written in English, Handlelsblatt Global is the sister publication to Handelsblatt, Germany’s leading financial daily newspaper.
In Handelsblatt Global, there’s a section headed Ask a German: Handelsblatt Explains. Thoroughly interesting and informative.
