McKinsey predicts a golden era for Germany (as long as an agenda 2025 is implemented and gets executed).
No one had a plan or agenda for the golden seventies, however they are fondly remembered.
Let’s take a second and look back.
I can vitaly remember having seen the picture to the left when it was originally published.
See through blouses and women wearing no bras, psychedelic musik and looking forward in indisputable confidence. The seventies remain in good memory.
It was a decade of exhaling and being at peace with oneself, at least for baby boomers and compared to the turmoil and lack of trust in government and businesses we have today.
The outlook for a forthcoming, golden era requiring another agenda, fails to raise hope or confidence, but causes suspicion and perhaps panic. McKinsey must have considered the soft facts.
All that the agenda 2010 is remembered by is Hartz IV, which depleted the retirement fonds from Germany’s elders and stripped ‘social’ from the once dependable welfare state, people so heavily relied on.
On the other side Hartz IV is said to be responsible for Germany standing out with a strong economy.
The Christian Party (CSU) spearheaded by Horst Seehofer has already introduced a hashtag (Spearheading Progress) for Bavaria and the city of Munich claiming leadership of the technology movement, despite it’s late entry.
