Germany's economic challenges
There are fears that the global trade war might tip Germany's economy into recession.
There are fears that the global trade war might tip Germany's economy into recession. Marcel Fratzscher is the president of the research institute DIW Berlin, and thinks Germany may already have reached that point. Danae Kyriakopoulou is the chief economist at the think tank OMFIF, and explains the significance of Germany's economy to the rest of the continent. And Klaus Deutsch, head of economic and industrial policy at industry group the BDI tells us why Germany's automotive sector is currently struggling. Also in the programme, we hear about a technology startup disrupting the rental property sector in Nigeria. Plus, in an effort to tackle counterfeiters, researchers have developed an artificial tongue that can detect subtle differences between whiskies. Alasdair Clark of the University of Glasgow tells us how it works. And we get reaction from Annabel Meikle, director of the Keepers of the Quaich, a society of whisky experts.
