On Foreign Policy’s new economics podcast, columnist Adam Tooze discusses two data points that explain the world.
German politicians are meeting these days to try to forge a governing coalition after Olaf Scholz and his Social Democratic Party won the most votes in the Sept. 26 federal election.
To command a majority in parliament, Scholz will need the support of at least one other party among six that qualified to enter government, including the Christian Democrats, the Greens, the Free Democratic Party, Alternative for Germany, and the Left.
On the latest episode of Ones and Tooze, Cameron Abadi and Adam Tooze discuss the results of the election and the economic policies of Scholz, who served as minister of finance for the past three years.
Also on the show: Why is Greece, a country with huge debt and a terrible financial record, able to borrow money virtually for free?
Ones and Tooze is Foreign Policy’s weekly economics show. On each episode, Abadi and Tooze examine two data points that explain the world.
