Europe absolutely leads in renewable energy, there's no comparison there.

And, to Migeru, this is what González said in contrast:

Well, it appears we think González doesn't have a very realistic assessment of where Europe stands, let alone where the US stands.

There is also:

the fracture of lack of adaptation to the technological revolution... because Indian software engineers have to be imported to Germany, which is the land of Engineering.

Actually, the idea to import foreign software engineers was pushed by the IT business association, citing 10% of jobs permanently unoccupied, but more likely inspired by hopes of lower labour costs. However, even though already Schröder tried to put policies in place, very few people came - even Indian programmers want higher wages.

Also note that say two top programs, the anti-virus program Avira and the anti-spyware program Ad-Aware, are creations of German start-up companies.
