Here is another of my Welt am Sonntag portraits. He refers to himself as a "Radical Tory". Rather a lot of unkempt bangs for a Tory, I thought. Here is a quote from him:

"It's very clear we're in the middle of a paradigm shift," he says. "We are witnessing the end of the neoliberal project - just as 30 years ago we saw the end of Keynesianism. We're in a shift of comparable proportions. The interesting question is what comes next."

He takes it as given that Keynesianism is dead! Well I guess we will find out over the course of the next couple of years...
