MARSHALL PLANNED:

Germany dominance over as demographic crunch worsens (Ambrose Evans-Pritchard, 01 Jun 2015, The Telegraph)

Germany's birth rate has collapsed to the lowest level in the world and its workforce will start plunging at a faster rate than Japan's by the early 2020s, seriously threatening the long-term viability of Europe's leading economy.

A study by the World Economy Institute in Hamburg (HWWI) found that the average number of births per 1,000 population dropped to 8.2 over the five years from 2008 to 2013, further compounding a demographic crisis already in the pipeline. Even Japan did slightly better at 8.4.

The Hun--at your throat, at your feet, or under them.
