Perhaps more relevant to Greece than GER debt; the Adenauer/Erhard “wirtschaftswunder” fostered by DM devaluation, mkt. liberalisation.

@g_mastropavlos @gavinschallio @howserob in fact GER repaid all of assessed WWI “debt”. France & others reached a settlement with US Tsy.

Syzria irresponsible on debt; Greece suffers income cuts without reform. But it should now vote no. Greeks’ best hope lies outside the Euro.
