German and nationals of other States are resisting the mutualisation of debt are shown as the bad Europeans and bad neighbors. Italian politicians are calling for in the German media Corona-Bonds, but the Italian media about the shooting of Italian patients in German intensive care units across. It is only a matter of time, until German politicians, such as in the Greece of crisis, are again shown with a Hitler moustache and a swastika armband.

But, the Corona-Bonds be-activists say us because the other countries from the USA to Japan the way? The Central government issued bonds to combat the pandemic and support the economy, and the Central Bank ensures that these bonds can be sold at low interest rates.

Who gives up the most expensive order is, benefits, who remains modest, lose. Each, therefore, has an incentive to make the bill as large as possible. You then must find the group that she has enough money to pay the bill.
