Despite being the fourth largest economy in the world, Germany’s outlook is deteriorating as they fallen into recession in May. So in this video, we’ll examine the German economy, why it’s currently stagnating and whether it will recover any time soon.
Our mission is to explain news and politics in an impartial, efficient, and accessible way, balancing import and interest while fostering independent thought.

The channel is run by a small group of young people, with us hoping to pass on our enthusiasm for politics to other young people. We are primarily fan sourced with most of our funding coming from donations and ad revenue. No shady corporations, no one telling us what to say.
