Germany is one giant trash can... There is no "economic miracle" in germany, they only managed to force unemployed people to accept 1 euro per hour jobs in order to make it "seem" like the unemployment went down... I like the part where it says Germans are forced to look in trash cans to fish for bottle deposits. Anyone who has been to or lived in Germany can confirm that there is NO improvement here in the infrastructure since the 80s... absolutely none.. people are just as depressed and pathetic as ever before. Germany is a cesspool of misery and will never be anywhere nearly as great as countries like France, UK, and US which actually have a solid consumption base and human beings who live there as opposed to trashy, robot-like Germans. Germany is the worst country on earth.
