The black zero is a thing of the past, the German state is running up more and more debts. Who has to pay that in the end? New episode of the FAZ podcast finances and real estate.

Corona costs us all dearly – also financially. In 2020, the state took on new debt amounting to 275 billion euros. This year and next, there will also be billions in debts. But national debts are also the debts of the citizens. Who has to pay the bill in the end? The taxpayer? Or is it the coming generation? Maja Brankovic and Antonia Mannweiler talk about this in this episode of the FAZ Podcast Finances and Real Estate with FAZ publisher Gerald Braunberger.
