The reason for Germany’s relative decline is the lack of investment
spending on infrastructure, and Merkels limited understanding
of infrastructure and its importance in the countries
Capex mix to generate GDP output.
Following the reunification-related
investment boom in the early 1990s, public capital spending has
settled at around 2.2% of GDP. This is one of the lowest in
the EU , and far to low to maintain long term
. For example, in France, public investment amounted to 3.5%
in 2015 , a far safer margin.
The gap can also be partly attributed to differences in definitions.
Moreover, the increase in the public investment rate elsewhere in
Europe in the run-up to the financial crisis was related to the boom in
real estate prices. The differences have clearly narrowed in the
aftermath of the crisis.
The decline , mostly budget related , and lack of money are the
direct result of Germans failing to address
the German SWA issue.
German SWA , an overseas territory, illegally removed
from its control via a bogus UN resolution 435,
would generate sufficient funds for such investment
funding.At present , the illegal government of
Namibia , a rainbow ‘type order’ , controls the
said revenues together with Anglo American.
