    Re: Europe doesn't share Germany's economic rebound

    How much of Germany's exports does the rest of Europe buy as a percentage of total exportation?

    I ask because, how far can an export economy thrive, when the importers can't afford them?

    I would say German economic success comes more from the way their businesses are ran, over any political ruler ship. If German companies were ran like American ones, there would be a lot more German unemployed. I guess it's not always about whats immediately profitable? If only there were some way to explain this concept to our corporate big wigs here...

    The fact is that German workers are better educated and harder working than most of their European counterparts. No cultural differences appear to have been taken into account when the EU was formed, perhaps with the idea that pointing out these differences, and the different philosophical questions regarding how to live a life, might be misinterpreted as an insult or, worse yet, racism. It was a foolish idea from the start and has never really enjoyed much public support..

    Why does this surprise anyone? Germany have looked after themselves first since the formation of the Euro something that countries like Greece are not slow to point out.

    But why shouldn't Germany look after it's own people first? If Germans have to send their money to the Greeks and the Portuguese they'll soon develop the work ethic of the Greeks and Portuguese.

    The point that people are trying to make is that the Germans manipulated the Euro and the EU so they could directly benefit from it first.

    Re: Europe doesn't share Germany's economic rebound

    Canada is poised to lead the G20 in economic growth once again with Germany not far behind. The two countries have strong, conservative, fiscally responsible governments that have no problem convincing their populace to tighten their belts when the times require it. These concepts are foreign to much of Europe and it's why they are still struggling under massive debt and deficits that cripple any hopes of spurring their economies.

    Then the others countries shouldn't have signed on to it. Losers are always making excuses for themselves and blaming the winners for cheating somehow. Americans know all about that.

    Is it clear how they cheated? Is there evidence to demonstrate that this is true and, if so, can anything be done about it?
