“The Mindset”: Growing Number of Investment and Economic Analysts Grasping Reality of Eurozone Crisis

As “Europa Germanica” takes form and additional substance, the reality of what Germany is doing is being recognized by a growing number of analysts. They are grasping the extent to which the German political and economic agenda is bad for business. The program Deutschland is imposing on Europe undermines the security of any wealth invested in the afflicted nations.


“We have a new kind of occupation in Europe by the Germans”: Did Germany Inflate Greece’s Deficit?

Waging “war by other means,” Germany has used its banks to do what Teutonic armies have accomplished in the past. A Greek official has charged that the 2009 Greek deficit was deliberately inflated to justify harsh austerity measures. Zoe Geroganta stated “We have a new kind of occupation in Europe by the Germans.” Germany is waging World War III in the economic sphere, in keeping with the principles of Prussian military theoretician Carl von Clausewitz.


“. . . Almost a Victory in the Third World War”

Waging “war by other means,” Germany has used its banks to do what Teutonic armies have accomplished in the past. A former Italian cabinet member has accused Germany of deliberately precipitating the euro-zone crisis. Tellingly, Renato Brunetta termed what Angela Merkel did as “almost a victory in the third world war.” It is vital to understand that the events overtaking the world were deliberate and preconceived. Germany is waging World War III in the economic sphere, rather than the military one, in keeping with the principles of Prussian military theoretician Carl von Clausewitz.


Austerity, Up Close and Personal, Part 3: The Continuation of War by Other Means

As the European debacle continues, we are in a position to further evaluate the depth and scope of the social destruction stemming from it. A recent report notes that Europe faces several “lost generations” as impoverished young people incur the damage resulting from “austerity.” Interestingly and significantly, large numbers of desperate, unemployed youth are seeking work in Germany. Ultimately, this figures to have the effect of increasing the social stress and pressure on the German workforce, who will face increased and intense competition for available jobs. “Anti-immigrant” sentiment has proved an effective recruiting tool for the far right around the world. The neo-fascist Golden Dawn has begun actively recruiting among Greek expatriates who have moved to Germany in search of work.


German Banks and the Eurozone Crisis

German banks were fundamentally involved in pumping the capital into the now-troubled Eurozone economies than others, despite lies to the contrary. In addition, they have been using Germany’s bailouts to shore up their own balance sheets. German finance is principally responsible for this crisis. Currently holding the world economy hostage in order to dissolve the political sovereignty of European nations, Germany is attempting to realize the goals of the Third Reich.


Krugmenistan vs Austeria

There has been some chatter in recent weeks about Paul Krugman’s tiff with the nation of Estonia. It’s being referred to as “Krugmenistan vs Estonia“. It might seem like a small story about one man pissing off an entire country, but it’s actually part of something much bigger: Krugmenistan vs Austeria.
