Germany's CDU and SPD parties have reached an agreement to form a new government. We get reaction to news of the coalition deal from Jürgen Hardt, who is a member of the German parliament for Chancellor Angela Merkel's CDU. And Gustav Horn, director of the German Institute of Macroeconomic Policy tells us how the country's economic policy might now change. Also in the programme, our US commentator Irwin Stelzer of the Hudson Institute looks ahead to next week's expected plan to overhaul US infrastructure. Companies around the world are responding to recent revelations of workplace sexual harassment by refining their employment policies.
