    Economic fundamentals remain solid and from here on, chances of a (gradual) rebound are still much higher than chances of yet another disappointment.

    They've been saying that since 2007. Never gets old.
    “We've always defined ourselves by the ability to overcome the impossible. And we count these moments. These moments when we dare to aim higher, to break barriers, to reach for the stars, to make the unknown known. We count these moments as our proudest achievements. But we lost all that. Or perhaps we've just forgotten that we are still pioneers. And we've barely begun. And that our greatest accomplishments cannot be behind us, because our destiny lies above us.”

    Couldn't agree more. And that's only the canton of Berlin. Here in my local town in Bavaria a new tunnel is being built. Capital was raised with donations from the townsfolk and a 40% stake from the government!! €22 million over 3 or 4 years I kid you not from the locals.

    Imagine a town in the UK being asked to donate to local infrastructure projects, it just no past go.

    That wasn't supposed to be a tunnel though, they were looking for the gold.

    WGAS about budget deficits. I bet if you looked at balance of trade figures, it would be a very different story.

    Even if they're no looking Germany still has more gold than the UK. Not looking good for the UK if the world economy returns to the gold standard.
