    Germany approves

    Germany had the biggest stimulus package in Europe. Republicans didn't see that one coming.

    Germany has demography problem otherwise it is positioned very well.
    After USA the German Government also has most gold holdings, around 10 times as much as UK.
    After WW2 Germany has succeeded to increase Gold-reserves from 0.5 tonnes to over 3300 tonnes.

    Germany has a window of opportunity.
    But it won't last long because Germany is ageing very fast and population will decrease.
    German society will prefer the Black-Forest to be the only thing black in Germany.

    In mid-term France is going to dominate because it is more open to "fresh blood" and the Africans produce children in France.
