Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Look, the German conviction that the 1923 hyperinflation caused Hitler in 1933 is a neurosis, to put it charitably. Brünning was applying austerity in 1931.

Don't they teach the history of the Weimar Republic in German schools?

A society committed to the notion that government is always bad will have bad government. And it doesn't have to be that way. — Paul Krugman
