Schleswig-Holstein's economy challenged by globalization

After years of rather subdued economic development, Schleswig-Holstein is seeing an upswing on the current edge.

Against this background, the authors examine the question of how well the Schleswig-Holstein economy is prepared for the challenges of globalization.
