Germany is Europe's largest economy and like much of the world it has been hit in the financial crunch. Senior members of Chancellor Angela Merkel's coalition government have agreed on an enormous economic stimulus package for the country.

Bertrand Benoit is following the story for the Financial Times and joins us from Berlin.
