Germany is Our Problem is a book written in 1945 by Henry Morgenthau, Jr., U.S. Secretary of the Treasury during the administration of Franklin D. Roosevelt.

You might think that recent events — market turmoil, weakening growth, declining manufacturing production — must be producing some soul-searching in the White House, particularly over Donald Trump’s view that “trade wars are good, and easy to win.” That is, you might think that if you haven’t paid any attention to Trump’s past behavior.
What he’s actually doing, of course, is attributing the economy’s troubles to a vast conspiracy of people out to get him. And his recent remarks suggest, if anything, that he’s preparing to open a new front in the trade war, this time against the European Union, which he says “treats us horribly: barriers, tariffs, taxes.”
What Hitler's rise to power teaches us about modern extremists
The rise of Adolf Hitler and the Nazi Party in Germany holds important lessons for the present.
“A lot has been discussed and announced, but very little has been implemented.” “It’s still not a lot of people for such a large and rich country like Germany ,” she “ Germans , who love to be appalled by the injustice in the world , by the Islamists in the Middle East, and the tax evaders in Greece, largely
Key problems . The Weimar Republic was created at a time of confusion and chaos after Germany had lost the World War One. Many people felt that Germany had received a very harsh deal in the Treaty of Versailles and they resented the government for signing it and agreeing to its conditions.

The funny thing is that there are some aspects of European policy, especially German economic policy, that do hurt the world economy and deserve condemnation. But Trump is going after the wrong thing. Europe does not, in fact, treat us badly; its markets are about as open to U.S. products as ours are to Europe’s. (We export about three times as much to the E.U. as we do to China.)

The problem, instead, is that the Europeans, and the Germans in particular, treat themselves badly, with a ruinous obsession over public debt. And the costs of that obsession are spilling over to the world as a whole.

Although Germany has had the most asylum applications in 2015, Hungary had the highest in proportion to its population, despite having closed its border with Croatia in an attempt to stop the flow in October. Nearly 1,800 refugees per 100,000 of Hungary's local population claimed asylum in 2015.
Some background: Around 2010, politicians and pundits on both sides of the Atlantic caught a bad case of austerity fever. Somehow they lost interest in fighting unemployment, even though it remained catastrophically high, and demanded spending cuts instead. And these spending cuts, unprecedented in a weak economy, slowed the recovery and delayed the return to full employment.

While debt alarmism ruled both here and in Europe, however, it eventually became clear that there was a crucial difference in underlying motivation. Our deficit hawks were, in fact, hypocrites, who suddenly lost all interest in debt as soon as a Republican was in the White House. The Germans, on the other hand, really meant it.
True, Germany forced debt-troubled nations in southern Europe into punishing, society-destroying spending cuts; but it also imposed a lot of austerity on itself. Textbook economics says that governments should run deficits in times of high unemployment, but Germany basically eliminated its deficit in 2012, when euro area unemployment was more than 11 percent, and then began to run ever-growing surpluses.
Fire Hydrants Have Been New York’s Cool Solution for 100 Years
More than a century after it was published, the article reads like slapstick comedy from the silent-movie era. It was May 1904.
“I have a huge problem .”. I can relate to this sentence. It’s hard to find someone who hasn’t uttered this sentence once in his life. Everybody has problems . Everybody worries about it. But have we ever thought about every people in the world ?
The World Bank Group works in every major area of development. We provide a wide array of financial products and technical assistance, and we help countries share and apply We face big challenges to help the world ’s poorest people and ensure that everyone sees benefits from economic growth.
© Michael Probst/Associated Press The European Central Bank in Frankfurt. Why is this a problem? Europe suffers from a chronic shortfall in private demand: Consumers and corporations don’t seem to want to spend enough to maintain full employment. The causes of this shortfall are the subject of a lot of debate, although the most likely culprit is demography: low fertility has left Europe with a declining number of adults in their prime working years, which translates into low demand for new housing, office buildings, and so on.
The European Central Bank, Europe’s counterpart to the Federal Reserve, has tried to fight this chronic weakness with extremely low interest rates — in fact, it has pushed rates below zero, which economists used to think was impossible. And bond investors clearly expect these extreme policies to last for a very long time. In Germany, even long-term bonds — all the way out to 30 years! — pay negative interest rates.
[For an even deeper look at what’s on Paul Krugman’s mind, sign up for his weekly newsletter.]
Some analysts think that these negative interest rates hurt the functioning of the financial sector. I’m agnostic on that point, but what’s clear is that with monetary policy stretched to its limits, Europe has no way to respond when things go wrong. Indeed, much of Europe may well already be in recession, and there’s little if anything the central bank can do.
Editor of Germany's biggest tabloid predicts no-deal Brexit 'with so many side agreements, that it's basically a Brexit deal'

In reality, the two world wars were very distinct conflicts, with very distinct treaties afterwards in both of which Poland received territory, but the To answer the question then of why Poland received historic German territory after the First World War is simple: it didn’t; it received historical Polish territory.
Most Third World countries have no population growth control or clear demographic policy The demographic problem is one of the most important and problematic . First, no clear and, more importantly, legally and ethically acceptable world mechanism has yet been developed to decrease
There is, however, an obvious solution: European governments, and Germany in particular, should stimulate their economies by borrowing and increasing spending. The bond market is effectively begging them to do that; in fact, it’s willing to pay Germany to borrow, by lending at negative interest. And there’s no lack of things to spend on: Germany, like America, has crumbling infrastructure desperately in need of repair. But spend they won’t.

On Putin's leadership
"If he says great things about me, I'm gonna say great things about him. I've already said he is really very much of a leader. I mean, the man has very strong control over a country.

Taking on MMA fighter Ronda Rousey (pictured) after her historic defeat to Holly Holm, Trump tweeted the above on Nov. 15, 2015. This might have been something to do with Rousey's suggestion that she'd vote for Democrat hopeful Bernie Sanders.
On shutting down mosques
"Well I would hate to do it but it's something you're going to have to strongly consider...some of the absolute hatred is coming from these areas...the hatred is incredible. It's embedded. The hatred is beyond belief. The hatred is greater than anybody understands."

Trump said to a reporter of the Rolling Stone magazine in September 2015 as fellow Republican presidential candidate Carly Fiorina (pictured) appeared on TV during an interview.

Trump commented this on U.S. Senator John McCain (pictured) on July 18, 2015, at the Family Leadership Summit in Iowa.
On the infamous 'wall'
"I will build a great wall — and nobody builds walls better than me, believe me — and I’ll build them very inexpensively. I will build a great, great wall on our southern border, and I will make Mexico pay for that wall. Mark my words."
In his Presidential Campaign Announcement Speech on June 16, 2016, Trump proposed to build a wall between the U.S. and Mexico.
On beating China
"Our country is in serious trouble. We don't have victories anymore. We used to have victories, but we don't have them. When was the last time anybody saw us beating, let's say China in a trade deal? I beat China all the time. All the time."
He made the emphatic statement during his June 16 speech.
On not topping TIME magazine list
"I told you @TIME Magazine would never pick me as person of the year despite being the big favorite. They picked person who is ruining Germany."

He tweeted the above on March 28, 2014. On Sept. 3 he tweeted on the issue again, saying, "I am being proven right about massive vaccinations--the doctors lied. Save our children & their future. No more massive injections. Tiny children are not horses--one vaccine at a time, over time."

On the day of the 2012 U.S. Presidential elections, Trump flooded Twitter with a trail of posts, including the above.

When "Twilight" stars Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart separated, Trump flooded Twitter with seven back-to-back tweets on Oct. 18, 2017. One of his tweets read the above.
On the 'birther' conspiracy
"An 'extremely credible source' has called my office and told me that @BarackObama's birth certificate is a fraud."
In August 2012, he published a tweet questioning the then-President Barack Obama's birth certificate. For a very long time he was one of the leading proponent of the 'birther movement' that promoted the false notion that Obama was born outside of the U.S.
On Obama's birth certificate
"He may have one but there's something on that, maybe religion, maybe it says he is a Muslim. I don't know. Maybe he doesn't want that. Or he may not have one. I will tell you this: if he wasn't born in this country, it's one of the great scams of all time."
Continuing with his stance on the 'birther' issue, he said the above during an interview on March 30, 2011.
On being rich
"Part of the beauty of me is that I am very rich."
During an interview with ABC’s "Good Morning America" on March 17, 2011, Trump said he may run as an independent in the general election if he fails to win the nomination and that he was prepared to toss in $600 million of his own cash to fund a campaign.
On his sexual dynamic with women
"All the women on 'The Apprentice' flirted with me -- consciously or unconsciously. That’s to be expected. A sexual dynamic is always present between people, unless you are asexual."
He wrote the above in his 2004-book, "Trump: How to Get Rich."
Most of the costs of German fiscal obstinacy fall on Germany and its neighbors, but there are some spillovers to the rest of us. Europe’s problems have contributed to a weak euro, which makes U.S. products less competitive and is one reason American manufacturing is sliding. But characterizing this as a situation in which Europe is taking advantage of America gets it all wrong, and is not helpful.
What would be helpful? Realistically, America has no ability to pressure Germany into changing its domestic policies. We might be able to provide a little moral suasion if our own leadership had any intellectual or policy credibility, but, of course, it doesn’t. There’s a sense in which the whole world has a Germany problem, but it’s up to the Germans themselves to solve it.

One thing is for sure: Starting a trade war with Europe would truly be a lose-lose proposition, even more so than our trade war with China. It’s the last thing either America or Europe needs. Which means that Trump is probably going to do it.
