What has happened to the German economic miracle? Rebuilding from the rubble and ruin of two world wars, Germany in the second half of the twentieth century recaptured its economic strength. High-quality German- made products ranging from precision tools to automobiles again conquered world markets, and the country experienced stratospheric growth and virtually full employment. Germany (or West Germany, until 1989) returned to its position as the economic powerhouse of Europe and became the world's third-largest economy after the United States and Japan. But in recent years growth has slowed, unemployment has soared, and the economic unification of eastern and western Germany has been mishandled. Europe's largest economy is now outperformed by many of its European neighbors in per capita terms. In "Can Germany Be Saved?" Hans- Werner Sinn, one of Germany's leading economists, takes a candid look at his country's economic problems (many of which he traces to an increasingly intractable conflict between Germany's welfare state and the forces of globalization) and proposes welfare- and tax-reform measures aimed at returning Germany to its former vigor and vitality.
