Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
There is a good chunk of the article that describes (reasonably fairly, I thought, but maybe I'm just misinformed) the origins of the Linkspartei from the merger of the old PDS and the Lafontaine group.

Even with the qualifiers, the Economist hardly paints a positive economic situation, and clearly flags what happens when you reform - lower wages, inequality and rising poverty. I found that newsworthy (I originally intended to do a FP post with that paragraph, but as you posted this story, I added it here).

In the long run, we're all dead. John Maynard Keynes
