Germany booms despite eurozone woes

Germany weathered the global economic crisis after workers agreed to cutting working time not jobs.

    There was not much positive economic news out of Europe in 2011, but the new year got off to a good start in Germany at least.

    The country's national statistics office has announced that more than half a million jobs were created last year despite the eurozone crisis leaving that number at 82 million - a record for Europe's largest economy.
