"How coronavirus has revealed the unexpected strengths of Germany’s model of government"

Die Coronakrise habe sich als von vielen englischsprachigen Beobachtern unerwartete Bestätigung der Stärke des deutschen Regierungsmodells herausgestellt, schreibt Jeremy Cliffe. "Germany moved faster to roll out testing. Its decentralised health system was more responsive than Britain’s top-down one and its federal state none-theless got more and faster support to businesses and workers during its (relatively mild) lockdown. Its leaders issued clearer messages about social distancing. As a result, Germany’s population of 83 million has suffered 9,000 deaths, while in Britain, with its population of 67 million, there have been at least 43,000. (…) Three key factors played out differently from what I expected. The first is the role of decentralisation. Far from slowing down policies to confront the virus, Germany’s federal structure helped them to flow. (…) There were conflicts, of course, with some federal states going their own way. But here the second German strength played a role: the emphasis on consensus. (…) The third factor is Germany’s attitude to science and technology, where its emphasis on applied research (rather than the sort of world-changing discoveries that mark out Oxford, Cambridge and Imperial) and its nuanced approach to digital technology have been beneficial. (…) The bugs in the German system turn out to be features." (New Statesman vom 01.07.2020) https://kurz.bpb.de/p5m
