Hans-Werner Sinn - German economist

Katya Adler speaks to Hans-Werner Sinn, one of Germany's most influential and controversial economists, about the country's role in resolving the Eurozone crisis.

Germany's pivotal role in resolving the Eurozone crisis has sparked fierce international discussion but also deep rifts at home.

Katya Adler speaks to Hans-Werner Sinn, one of Germany's most influential and controversial economists, who is at the heart of that debate.

Recently he joined forces with more than 100 colleagues to oppose any move towards Germany paying for the bank debts of other countries and appeared in front of the German constitutional court to criticise the EU bailout fund.

Is he reflecting genuine public concerns or fuelling Germans worst fears?
