Hollande's Germany Envy: Can the German Model be Exported?

On both sides of the Rhine, there's a change of political course. Hollande is now a self-proclaimed "social democrat", while the German chancellor, who this Wednesday delivered her first state of the nation address since signing up to a grand coalition with her own Social Democrats, pledged to redress excesses for all those stuck in precarious, low-paying jobs.

Produced and prepared by Anelise Borges, Christopher Davis and Haxie Meyers-Belkin
