What Germany Sees


Some simple graphics from Germany’s Der Speigel mag.  The graphs aren’t anything new, but it is noteworthy that this is what Germans are deeply concerned about.

Der Spiegel:  Nation in Debt

Now the really inexplicable part comes in as German/European worry over our finances intersects with their dismay over Obama’s self-described “shellacking” in the midterms and the rise of the Tea Party.  The Euros seem not to grasp the connection between building the nanny-state and the cost to do so.

Is it hyperbole to say that the last European to really, really understand America was Tocqueville?
