errrr, Germans don't work hard.

[link to money.cnn.com]

German economy is doing well
because they work a 35-hour workweek
and have six weeks of paid vacation.

In other words, the work is better
distributed across MORE PEOPLE.

Duh.

Re: Germans work hard, economy doing well - Greeks are lazy, means their economy is in a shithole
A 32-hour workweek would fix the US economy,
just as a change from 48 to 40-hour workweek
fixed it during the Great Depression.

There's only a finite amount of work. That's
the number one fallacy of capitalism - the belief
that work is infinite. So fixing the economy
is a function of redistributing a FINITE amount
of work across many workers, not a few.

And not only is work finite, but it SHRINKS
over time as an economy becomes more productive.

This has been known for almost 100 years,
Henry Ford introduced the 40-hour workweek in
1928 for these reasons. Henry Ford is hardly
a communist, he was simply a capitalist who
could THINK, unlike the great majority of
today's capitalists who are too stupid to
realize that if they destroy the pay of
their workers, they also destroy their customers.

Re: Germans work hard, economy doing well - Greeks are lazy, means their economy is in a shithole
You don't know shit

Greeks have many problems

But germany is simply evil, and quite ammusing this comments coming from switzerland

When war was ended by bankers Germany instead of building homes built factories... The gold they stealed to the greeks as they got as loan was never gave back and so never repaid the war damages.
We are talking about an ammount of money that excide by many times what greece got in fiat money as help from europe.

People...even many greeks , that also suffered an extended war with lot if german soldiet still terrorizing people in the rural and civil war, went to work in germany... Right they were slaves in factories organized as concentration camps. To go to pee you had to require a key to the toilets and you got a timer... 2 min to go back in assembly line.


Many problem of greece ard related to the dominatons they suffered. Till today countries as germany operate in greece completely lawles

Many german corporations are at the origin of big economic and political scandals and still today greece did not had the power to persecute those pigs

Having implemented Eu directive across the EU, it is easy to see the EU in 3 different Regions, Northern, Central and Southern, all pretty similar within those sphere, but very dissimilar outside of them and this is why the EU does not really work..

Lazy is the wrong word, they have a different approach to work, and different expectations, which creates a different culture.. trying to make the Greeks or Spanish akin to the Germans was a plan doomed from the start.

There is some truth in the joke:

Heaven is where the police are British, the lovers French,the mechanics German, the chefs Italian, and it is all organized by the Swiss.

Hell is where the police are German, the lovers Swiss, the mechanics French, the chefs British, and it is all organized by the Italians.


We are so dissimilar that this EU project was going to be a detriment to some, and we label them the PIIGS.. which is unfair when the actual fault is akin to the Hell version of the Joke...

Re: Germans work hard, economy doing well - Greeks are lazy, means their economy is in a shithole
The plan was doomed because that was their aim. Eu was designed on Germany standards, so they got it easy, and by posing standard too high for piigs they played it with goldman who behind the curtains went to the piigs and said no problem, take this loan and let us cook the books. Who is troika? Goldman... All this to extract wealth from piigs, getting a less powerfull currency to bost german exports and finally eject the piigs stripped of all their assets and join them in the kissinger rothshield israeli plan to have the piigs along with other mediterranean countries in a union under Israeli control

Yeah... Now that us is economically destroyed israel will suck her belived trillions from mediterranean union

The Swedes are a race bastardised with Eskimo-Saami blood and are hated amongst their fellow Nordics because they colluded with the Germans in WWII whilst undercover of neutrality.

The Spanish are a Mediterranean race which spread their culture all over the world.

The hell version I heard had the Swedes responsible for culture and entertainment. A horrible thought...

You're absolutely right though, the problem is Europeans are a bunch of very different cultures, and we're not really suited to the unification agenda. That's why we got a situation where the law-and-order-happy northerners made up tons of rules and regulations, which the more relaxed southerners promptly ignored. Chaos ensued.

The project was bound to fail from the start.

I've often thought about this during the ongoing class war of the last couple generations.
As I watch the continuing degradation of the standard of living of the lower classes and the seemingly never ending upwards flowing redistribution of wealth, how any of these multibillionaire trillionaire morans think this is sustainable in any way.

I'd like to correct your misconceptions a bit...

If the Swedes are hated for anything, it's for being obnoxious self-important know-it-alls who firmly believe they're the crown of creation and a shining example the rest of the world should emulate. I mean, who wouldn't hate them for that?

The amount of Eskimo-Saami blood running through their veins is absolutely miniscule though. We're talking less than the black African blood in the average Englishman, just to take an example.

The Spanish are on the other hand a heavily "bastardized" people because of the Moorish invasion. Read up on history.

exactly!

let's not forget, it was the german and french banks that knowingly gambled the money in the greek casino and were bailed out by ordinary working european folks

who does that? can you go to las vegas and gamble away your life savings and then expect other people to finance you while you don't even attempt to cut back on your luxurious lifestyle?

if there were no crisis, the same banks would stuff sky high bonuses into pockets of high tier management and there would be no talk of national character flaws, but if i accept that greeks are lazy, then i also have to accept that the germans are neocolonialist exploiters.

Got to agree. Britain had a bigger deficit than Greece when the SHTF, but their economy's going strong.

propoganda

Greece has problems because its richest citizens are not paying taxes, yet they're the ones who own much of the country's debt. So basically the poor Greeks have to sacrifice their savings to repay with interests a debt that belongs to the richest greeks and greedy international banks and hedge funds. Meanwhile other European countries are asked to give up on their shares of the greek debt because it was only their taxpayers money anyway.

This is like Robin Hood in reverse. This is the world we live in.

it's the most intelligent 5% that create all the jobs, that think of things to do and how to do them in the most efficient ways.

it is not actually hard work, it's the people who think of what to do. Most people will do anything to get a good job and work hard.
