For as long as I can remember, I’ve always had an interest in current events.
We all know that the past few years have been extremely challenging on the economic front. More recently, the focus has moved to Europe. Leading the charge for what has been labeled “austerity measures” is Germany. I wanted to get a german perspective on this. I was delighted when my friend Matthias Bollmus, an instructor ast Carroll University and a West German national, agreed to join me in conversation.
I hope you enjoy the conversation! I found my time with Matthias to be extremely educational.
