1) Former Defense Minister Guttemberg is a EU adviser

The former Defense Minister Karl-Theodor zu Guttenberg is appointed as EU Adviser for the freedom in Internet. We wonder where he has gathered the competence. Surely not when he was Minister if his successor told that his plan for the new German Army was full of mistakes and superficiality. Not when he was student because he copied his degree. This is only a price that Chancellor Merkel paid to her allied CSU. We could tell that when it is time to give privileges to the elite and protegee the Germans are the same than Italians or any others in the EU. No one can give lessons to no one… .


2) The Liberal Party, (FDP), is deep concerned for the new political elections

After than a leading member of the liberal party , Frank Schäffler ,is the Europäischen Stabilitätsmechanismus / European Stability Mechanism all the party is concerned about the future and we face internal struggle.According to the last electoral trends there is the risk that it cannot have a seat in the Parliament, ( Bundestag) , and this will affect the whole political scenario making, for example, problematic a cohalition for the CDU-CSU and Merkel.

3) The German labor cost is on average with the EU

The labor costs in Germany continued to surge in growth and hardly remain low by European standards. The costs in the private sector climbed by only 0.6 percent in 2010. On average in the EU countries work in Germany, however, was up 1.7 percent compared with the euro area by 1.6 percent more expensive.Higher costs are in Belgium, Denmark, Sweden, France, Luxembourg and the Netherlands.

4) Concerns about export to China

The German companies starts to get concerned about the Chinese economy. It is not a coincidence that Chancellor Merkel starts to be less arrogant and to understand that Germany needs the EU. And it is not also a coincidence that the prestigious Financial Times Deutschland titles in the first page that ,at the end, the Italian debt it is not so dramatic. By the way we kindly remind that Italy is the 5th world market for Germany when China is the 8th.

5) Arms export to the Arabian World and, DESPITE the CRISIS, to Greece and Portugal

The recently published government report on arms exports confirms that Berlin is continuing the upgrade of the dictatorships in the Arabian Peninsula – and thus supports the anti-Iran policies of the West. In addition, German arms companies supply military equipment to several states in the immediate vicinity of the People’s Republic of China. This effort is equivalent to the efforts of the West in order to contain Beijing’s influence. Furthermore, the arms export report reveals Berlin has approved the delivery of firearms – equipment that was used against demonstrators.The Arabian buyers where the top of the list followed by Portugal and Greece, where Berlin in 2010. As we told many times to explain the real reason of the crisis,( a banking one that involves the over exposed German and French banks),it seems that it was not a problem to accept that Athens and Lisbon issued new bonds to finance the buying of Made in Germany weapons. No one in Berlin blamed it as irresponsible and surely Portugal and Greece need these arms during this crisis and it was not wise and responsible for their government to think to save money cutting these orders. Who bought these bond to finance the German Export ? Surely not the German Banks but the ECB. Again we pay to finance the German exports and we must listen the German lessons of “virtue and sound management” .
Germany is now the third largest arms exporter in the world.

6) Prosecutors accuses Deutsche Bank

The process is a multi-million dollar tax fraud in CO2 emission rights. For the prosecutors the active support of employees of Deutsche Bank the fraud was never possible. This according to national newspaper Süd Deutsche Zeitung that talks about a fraud of around 300 millions € .
