Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Germany's austerity was a protectionist exercise in which Germany piggybacked on the rest of the Eurozone to pay for the reunification.

It might surprise you, but history didn't start in 2002 or 1999.

Because it is totally unnecessary. Governments do not have to pay back their "debt," ever.

Yea, because after frequently defaulting they have no problem to attract new lenders.

Just how stupid do you think people are?
