    Mhm. Compare the environment, healthcare, education, transportation and ease of socializing and it's clear that Europe is so much better to live in. Sure, Germany is ruch, but even if you are from a poor European country like I am, it still gives me a much better life then if I were poor and living in the states. That being said, it's so easy to make money in the States, people that are poor, but are not disabled or caring for a disabled person just have to pull up their sleeves and work.

    Actually I think, although the refugee crisis hurt us politically, it will in the long-term really help economic development. In a few years, there will be more jobs than workers, and we will have to let more people in the country to work here. Otherwise there must be more than just 1.4 children per woman in Germany, which isn't happening at this moment.

    I myself (a German) have never been to the US, but multiple friends of mine have been there, on vacation or to study abroad for one or two semesters and many of them were commonly and casually faced with questions like "Do you like Hitler?" and "Most of you are nazis, aren't you?". Do Americans (and other people for that matter) actually think of most Germans as nazis and right-wing extremists?

    If Germany is so great how come there are over 58 million people in the USA of German descent. Not too far from the German population today of some 80 million people. Don't take it wrong Germany is one of my favorite countries to visit. I liked Germany much better though when they did not have all the damn Muslims and Turks.

    I,m German, pretty glad for all those friendly comments.
    Anyway, one fact that was not mentioned is, german economie is based heavy on worldtrading whereon the us makes most of his business within his own counrty.
    So if the worldtrading comes to stock somehow and get into a crysis for eg. germany suffers way more then the us.

    Global Left-Liberal media suggests Germany is somehow an ideal Liberal Democracy, which is rather mind-boggling. Modern Germany never really had any universal, equal opportunity, point based Immigration system, instead preferred de-facto ethnocentric migration with Government level deals for importing migrants in exclusively worker shortage sectors.
    Even if we ignore natural language barrier in Labour market and by extension immunity against Outsourcing, there are real Institutional discrimnations in place. Apparently harmless looking Apprenticeship system ensures labour market entry point is from relatively homogeneous pool of School Diploma holders - one of the earliest in Western world; and thereafter placement is training based instead of meritocratic, relegating even the EU job seekers overwhelmingly to worker shortage sectors, when labour market equality is one of the basic premises of EU Laws.
    Germany has never really mulled any veritable Equal opportunity law, let alone Race Relations Law. Social and economic attainment of major migrant groups in Germany far worse than British Indians or American Chinese. German Corporate World continues to be multiple times homogeneos compared to even their own top Universities. And according to Eurostat, unemployment differential between locals and foreign origin residents in Germany at 5.2% is nearly 4 times that of UK at 1.3%.
    Evidently Germany has been more open to migration because their labour and housing markets are fortified.

There are 58 Million Germans of solely or part German descent living in the USA according to USA stats.

    • Edmund Faust
      Edmund Faust 11 days ago +1

      georg57 georg57 And then you still have to be lucky that your company actually doesnt fire you if you are sick for a few weeks. I dont know what kind of job you doing but i cant imagine that an employer will put much money in a sick worker if his only job is to screw some nails for example. Whether your company supports you if you are sick or not is voluntary. Systems work poor if they are voluntary. Maybe you got a job you cant be replaced in a few weeks because you are important. But an assembly line worker isnt as important for the company and can be replaced in days. And a 12 000 hospital bill hits him much harder than an engineer in a tech company. Your system punishes the low paid for being sick.
      It is true that the US has the largest economy on earth. But Germany with only 80 million inhabitants is 4th. Because we care for our workers and help them sometimes so they can help themselfes. Maybe Germans are a bit more collectivistic than the americans but if a nation with only 80 million people manages to be the 4th largest economy on earth it cant be a bad system. And maybe you could learn from it

    • georg57 georg57
      georg57 georg57 11 days ago

      Edmund Faust: I have never worked for an American company that did not. I am sure there are the mom and pop businesses that do not. In a situation like that the government steps in and will help you. My God man we are even giving free medical care to Illegal immigrants in the USA. I am ok with that but deport them Immediately. Furthermore, the USA economy is larger than all of Europe. I am sure we have some shortfalls like any large nation.

    Germany is what it is today because the US took over their govt following WW2. Had the American's done this following WW1, there would have been no second war and Germany would be even stronger today. They have an insane work ethic but overcompensate for their genocidal past with a misunderstood compassion for Islamic refugees that will ultimately topple all of their neighbors and maybe even Germany herself.

    They didn’t mention anything about taxes. Germans pay much more taxes than we do here in the USA. This video is just another socialist propaganda! The average German is so suppressed by his/her State. Not to mention Germans being killed and raped by the illegal immigrant imported into Germany by the State. And if you call this “better off” no thanks. Plus just watch how Germany is about to start getting into more trouble as time goes by.... due to its own socialist policies and due to its suicidal immigration policies!

      Rapes and murders do happen, but it is much more likely to be shot in the US than being killed by a refugee in Germany.

    The refugee crisis has actually helped the german economy a lot. We had an enormous birth rate decline before that really threatened to have a drastic impact on our economy. Many areas simply lacked interested personal. Now more and more businesses do the smart thing and incorperate highly determined refugees, essentially boosting our work force. An often overlooked aspect of the refugee crisis. It brings challenges but also chances.
