Germany’s engineering prowess has driven the nation’s economic success for decades. Now that model is being questioned thanks to rising protectionism, slowing global growth, new technologies and Germany’s own underinvestment in its infrastructure. Bloomberg’s Catherine Bosley has a report from the factory floor, then host Stephanie Flanders talks with columnist Ferdinando Giugliano about what’s ailing Europe’s powerhouse.

Stephanie also hears from economic editor Paul Gordon about another hot topic where Germany’s influence is uncertain: the race for the next president of the European Central Bank.
