The article reconstructs the internal debate in Germany during the years of the Great Recession about the ambivalent role played in this phase by Modell Deutschland, as a paradigmatic and problematic reference at the same time. In a fi rst phase, the debate focuses on the model of Rhenish capitalism, seen as an alternative to the excesses of Anglo-Saxon-style kasino-kapitalismus. In a second phase, the export-led nature of the German model and its sustainability in the European context is discussed; in the third and fi nal phase, the external projection capacity of the Modell Deutschland is put in relation to the exercise of German leadership in the Eurozone crisis.
