The contributor, Stephen Leeb, thinks inflation for Germany is inevitable. But Germans hate inflation! In 1921 – 1924 inflation was so severe that the Weimar Republic issued one trillion mark notes to overcome the severe catastrophe. The Great Depression followed in the 1930s and in most respects was far worse then in the 1920s. Yet by controlling the flow of money, there followed a time of steady growth and the Nazis came into power!
Leeb believes today there is an economic analogy similar to WWII. In the 1930s Germany suffered greatly due to worldwide austerity. Now Germany is exercising its dominance over Europe. The euro is used exclusively in 17 European countries, but the euro is of much less value than the German mark would be if European countries could trade freely withe the German currency. The German mark gets less valuable as it combines with the currencies of countries that are much weaker.
