    It is not in a recession, that´s just Polish onanism.
    In fact, our second quarter saw a minus of 0,1 % but in order to have a official recession you need to two sequent quarters with a minus.
    The current minus affects many countries and will ultimately hit its origin, the USA.

    You think the UK is socialist when it's got the most right wing government it's had for years, probably ever?

    Your migrants statement is nonsense.

    Our economy is the engine of the fucking planet. SOrry that we can't always be pulling you along as much as you would like.


    We would improve it if we could. We are trying. But we have a lot of morons who want to just give up.

    The vast share of the US economy is subjected to US consumption. How can that affect us? In fact, when there is a decline of German money making in the US, that doesn´t affect us, as well. I will still go out and buy my stuff, do exactly like I did before. That´s fear mongering of US agents. If the US goes down, we won´t have a real problem.

    I'm sure that you just happen to have a 70 billion a year trade surplus with US, and that you don't care about that money at all.

    The surplus is good for looking at it but it has no effect here on the ground. The most German exports go to EU member states, anyway.

    Asshole - do you know who's the the most responsible factor for this? Exactly: the USA. Every German company who trusted in the USA or Great Britain gets now serios problems. Additionally break the import markets of China down for all companies from the western world, because all people of the western world are Nazis - ah sorry: US-Americans - for the Chinese. And you are indeed right. The markets not only from Germany but also of the complete western world are essentially in danger to break down - and not only this - this process is able to be for the USA an irreversible process. The USA destroys in the moment not only the western world and the world economy - it is also doing suicide. It will need decades until someone will be able to trust in the USA again.

    Where you also have a healthy surplus.


    Don't get me wrong. I think you guys are on to something. I've often cited your trade balance as something we should try to emulate.


    AND your manufacturing employment.

    The typical nonsense from Trump - he is not calculating the US-services as for example operating systems, internet companies like Amazon and so on. Asides: The shareholders of German companies are in most cases not Germans. Germans are in general not big shareholders - nowhere - in no country - also not in the own country. Indeed we are not a rich country - we are hard workers, that's all.
