Marshall plan
2020-05-04 13:52
Marshall plan played just a very small role in our Wirtschaftswunder. It was also very little compared to other european countries. check per capita and remember that germany was totally destroyed learneurope.eu/files/1313/7509/6435/Dist..
2020-05-04 13:55
Also the Marshall plan consisted of 12 billion $ which is equivalent to over $128 billion today ... for all of europe. Furthermore, the money was not a gift, it was a credit. We had to pay it back which we did really fast.
2020-05-04 14:13
On top of that you still had to pay the Versailles war reparations too as far as I'm aware.
2020-05-04 15:46
We had to pay a cut of them. Actually only finished paying all (of the cut + interest) in 2010

Germany today is a shadow of its former self. Many millions of strong and brave Germans died in WW1 + WW2
2020-05-04 13:50
+1 and it is very sad story for the World
2020-05-04 15:09
Because USA helped Germany a lot
2020-05-04 13:49
kinda wrong, they helped because they were dependant on german industry. USA never does something good without clear benefits.
2020-05-04 14:06

2020-05-04 14:31
But Italy, France and the UK got more help from the US than Germany.
2020-05-04 14:57
France and the UK were allies
2020-05-04 15:43
Yeah, but they got more money so help from the US isnt a good argument since others got more help.
2020-05-04 16:12

Most influential and economically strongest EU country
2020-05-04 13:52
Just take a look at the BIP and you have the answer.
2020-05-04 13:52
oh you are right GERMANY BEST, NUMERO UNOOOOOO
2020-05-04 13:54
100% the best EU country in literally everything (beside muslim flood maybe, but since i am not living there - i can judge just by other's words). edt. but if i could chose just EU coutnry to live at - id still go with switzeland :D
2020-05-04 14:11
switzerland is not in the EU but i guess you meant european country?!
2020-05-04 14:13
Shit, i meant to write Eu, not EU (forgot its also abbreviation for european union POG).
2020-05-04 14:14
It would be much more convenient if all EUROPEAN countries were in the EU xD that would fix most EU/Eu misconceptions

Because of this. hugelol.com/lol/229864 Think just some asain countries are even more workaholics
2020-05-04 13:52
I would say the US aswell. So many over there think it's normal to work like 50-60 hours a week. Very few do so in germany
2020-05-04 13:54
U.S dont do it because they workaholics, but because its shit country
2020-05-04 14:21
Just check how they won against Coronavirus. Germans definitely know something we don't.
2020-05-04 13:53
because they work
2020-05-04 13:56
In short after ww1 germany got fked hard, thats why ww2 started in the first place. Uk and america realized that they cant just fk a country like germany, so instead they helped their side of germany that they controlled and germany got back on to their feet, and basically thats it. Germany was always a strong country, they were only weak after ww1 and became their old selves after ww2

One reason: Prussia still today we have this system. My history teacher call it "Leading a country as a military barrack". We have rules for every shit. Things other countries wouldn't even think about. As an example, Greece has no real welfare system. They have pension instead. So everyone who lost his job at a certain age got a pension. In Germany, you have to beg and join the hated Hartz 4 system. Also Germany has as only country in Europe the dual system for the apprenticeship. So 3 days work 2 days school. Very good and it is known it is good but no other country copy that. Really easy
2020-05-04 14:04
i have unrelated question. in which age in school germans as kids learn akkusative and dative in language

as german you are born with it. I never need to ask myself "what case it is now" But as far as I remember at my school time it was 5th or 6th class. Depends on federal state in Germany. Everyone has their own school agenda.
2020-05-04 15:34
ty.and is it really important not make mistake in dayly conversations?
2020-05-04 16:09
It triggers people more than you skip a verb. Or when you say sth like "Das Schule" instead of "Die Schule" A hard trigger cuz then you sound stupid.
2020-05-04 16:11
GERMANY Sold their nazi germany scientist to murica for a deal. thats my guess.

well not exactly there are no superior countries but there are countries wich are 1000x better by living standards
2020-05-04 14:30
Asians have higher IQ's on average, so they are superior in that aspect. If a country has better living standards it is "better". Or would you like to live in Africa. Stop the PC bullshit.

Allies had to put a shitton of a money into ze Germans cause they don’t want no WW3 thanks to Germany crashing and being poor as fuck again. (It’s one of the main reasons why Hitler got into power and gave us WW2. Poverty and hyperinflation)

But Italy, the UK and France got more money than Germany.
2020-05-04 15:01
France and Italy were completely torn to shreds. UK was a key part of the Allies victory so thats likely why and London got bombed. And yet despite that, Germany (West Germany at the time) in the end still had a fucking larger economy despite getting bombed and destroyed to fucking oblivion.
2020-05-04 15:46
Larger economy than UK and France after losing a war is an achievement I guess hahaha

Germany has good economic structure but nobody is really happy here. Most of people working 40-50h per week and haven't enough to buy something for themself.. too many migrants who working for 1-2 years and living from gouvernements money. For example turkish/arabic people come here to "work" and some of them doing it, paying taxes, but alot like really alot of them do not work, living from "harz4", having alot of children for "childrenmoney" (220€+/child) and working unregistered iligal. Why stuff like this happen ? BC GERMAN IDIOTS GIVING MONEY TO EVERYONE AND INVITING EVERYONE TO COME HERE.. FUCKING SOCIAL SYSTEM ALLOW THEM TO DO THIS... and working people paying for this.. sooo if you plan to live in germany. make sure, your registered location is in your homecountry so you don't pay taxes for this stupid gouvernement. ps. don't forget all the refugees who comes here.. germany do this bc of their "social engagement" bc of their history.. fucking germans

I mean the standards here are good, no questions! but they set a limit for you. like you have to take care of others, even you don't know them. and they take half of your salery and you can do nothing about it. And what they do with this money ? right now people who payed taxes for 10-20 years.. over hundred-thousands of euro getting nothing back. not even full payed salery for 3 months..of corona.. they are not allowed to work and later workers have to rebuild. In russian people know what they got and gouverment don't telling lies like yeah we are the best and all this stuff like german dogs in politics

hard-working and also the biggest country population-wise, excluding russia. but the eu and germany is lead by globalists, so it doesn't have a positive effect on the country. germany also has the highest taxes from all first world countries, working people are pretty much sucked dry, we could be a much more prosperous country with less work, but people like the idea of socialism and big government
