 "Prosperity for all – who can still promise that?" – this question was asked by Maybrit Illner on Tuesday in her half-hour special "illner intensive". The replies of the three invited politicians were a "wish you what" concert with the closing act of a dispute between Andrea Nahles and Sahra Wagenknecht.

The guests, part one

· Andrea Nahles, SPD

· Carsten Lindemann, CDU

 · Sahra Wagenknecht, The Left

The format

This week, Maybrit Illner is devoting himself to the topics of the election campaign in four half-hour interviews with leading politicians. The aim: short answers from the politicians, no sprawling discussions, for them concrete subject blocks with a crisp course – and indeed one could finally recognize differences.

The fronts

Tariffs – yes or no? On this question of Illner, which was factual, concentrated, and decisive, the difference between the three candidates was best shown. CDU economist Lindemann stated: "The problem is not the gross wages but the net wages." Taxes and duties, the CDU promises. Although she could have done that for years. At least Lindemann admitted this to himself. "We have neglected the people who make this social state possible, and we have been working on this issue for years." Actually, the CDU man provided a deselection criterion for his own party, if the co-government SPD had not sat at the same time. Their representative Nahles said that relief was good, but it would be better if there was "good wages for good work". There was also the question: Why did not the SPD do this in the Grand Coalition? According to Nahles, it would also require a "reduction of the fixed-term employee relations". The "non-objective limitation" has been abolished.

Wagenknecht, the only opposition politician in the three-round round, had an easy game. She put her finger in the wound. "I think it's striking how this is going on. They have been governing for four years," the Left said, with a view to the wishes of the government policymakers, who made promises on the subject of business already four, eight, and twelve years. "Do you mean it at last," cried Wagenknecht, telling them that the Left was a "relief for the middle class," which in turn was no other promise than that which Lindemann and Nahles had given. The difference was that the left-hand boss at least explained how this should be financed. "We want to take over a wealth tax for Superreiches and the companies. Since Schröder's time the wage drivers in the company have been red carpet." The fronts were cleared up – and they culminated directly in a veritable dispute.

The excitement of the evening

Because Wagenknecht accused the German Labor Minister Nahles, the SPD could have a government with the left and the Greens in 2013, Nahles broke out: "You have never done anything for the people out there in your political career," Nahles Wagenknecht said and accused the left-wing politician of merely tinkering through talkshows and tapping sayings. "In this legislative period, I have picked up a great deal for the people," Nahles said, almost like a defiant child, but then explained in detail what she was doing and what she already had a draft bill in the drawer. "I fight for the long-term unemployed, so I need two billion euros to solve the problem and get people out there." Where she wanted to take the money, she did not betray.

The low point of the evening

Nahles was also involved in a second word war. Carsten Lindemann had accused her of increasing the number of temporary employees in the Federal Ministry of Labor. "This is a lie," countered the SPD Minister, and announced "tomorrow to deliver on Facebook" a proof that her CDU colleague had not told the truth. One can be curious whether it delivers.

The moderators question

In a few words, the candidates should comment on the issue of minimum wages. Lindemann had no concrete answer, explained, "the minimum wage bureaucracy is a problem". How to solve this, he did not say. Wagenknecht reiterated the Left Election Program, according to which the minimum wage should be twelve euros. Nahles, on the other hand, lavished around the exact height, merely explaining that "whoever receives a minimum wage for a lifetime has not enough retirement." A problem that is well known.

What remains open

In conclusion, the three politicians were able to hypothetically explain which two immediate measures they would implement for the economy, their party would have the absolute majority at the Bundestag elections. Wagenknecht would ban the "non-justifiable time-limit and raise the minimum wage to 12 euros." Nahles would allow women to return from part-time to full-time more quickly after a child's birth and conclude a "pact for decent wages." And Lindemann, the CDU man remained the most unconcerned, he wanted to support children from Hartz IV families and put the "people in the center", which were the backbone of the welfare state, but he did not get any more concrete ,
