Welcome to the new version of European Tribune. It's just a new layout, so everything should work as before - please report bugs here.
I guess the industrialists were happy to let the bankers make most of the contributions and get most of the press until....

Fortunately for Germany, it still HAS a manufacturing sector. In better run economies, such as the USA and UK manufacturing is SO 20th century. My question is: why have the industrialists let things get to this point? Or does it take the earth opening up beneath them to arouse them from their stupor?
