    HERBERT IM GLÜCK

    Title of an article about a businessman. Happy Herbert? A Happy Man? Or does Im Glück have a distinct meaning?

    There is a fairy tale, called "Hans im Glück": Hans became a very happy man by fortunate circumstances (in his view) and also by his simple mentalitiy.

    The businessman's name is Herbert. He probably is a happy man, too, by fortunate circumstances and by having a certain mentality that allows him to accept the feeling of being happy.
