Bitcoin Around the World: Germany - Inside Bitcoins

Bitcoin Around the World: Germany - Inside Bitcoins | money money money | Scoop.it

LONDON (InsideBitcoins) — The map of Europe has not always been dominated by Germany. Prior to 1871, the country didn’t even exist; before then the German speaking people lived in a disparate group of principalities and duchies, the ‘Holy Roman Empire,’ a state dominated by Austria and still later by Prussia.  Since that time, the German Question, as it was usually referred to,  plagued the minds of the political intelligentsia. Its central location, its size and its population base mixed with the seemingly unstoppable work ethic of its people and produced a country that was better placed to inherit the mantel of European hegemony than any other since the fall of the Roman Empire.

When Money Dies: Germany And Fiat Money After 1910 | money money money | Scoop.it

The story of the destruction of the German mark during the hyper-inflation of Weimar Germany from 1919 to its horrific peak in November 1923 is usually dismissed as a bizarre anomaly in the economic history of the twentieth century. But no episode better illustrates the dire consequences of unsound money or makes a more devastating, real-life case against fiat-currency: where there is no restraint, monetary death will follow.

Could Germany's Economic Relapse Endanger the European Union's Existence - The Desert Sun

Could Germany's Economic Relapse Endanger the European Union's Existence - The Desert Sun | money money money | Scoop.it

Since the late Twentieth Century origin of the European Union, and the subsequent 1999 establishment of the monetary “Eurozone,” it has become increasingly obvious that the Federal Republic of Germany has become the economic, if not the political linchpin of this attempt to unite most of independent European nations into what optimists originally dubbed the United States of Europe. Unfortunately, this seemed to have misfired economically.
