Poverty in Germany breaks a half-century record

According to the German newspaper Die Welt, recently the economic situation in Germany has changed so much that every second German can only afford the bare necessities. About 16% of German citizens barely make ends meet, which is an absolute record for the level of poverty in at least 50 years.


At the same time, the inhabitants of Germany do not expect any changes for the better. A significant part of the inhabitants of Germany intends to continue to limit their consumer needs, the newspaper writes.

The lion's share of the budget of ordinary Germans goes to cover the cost of energy, food, basic necessities and basic services.

The situation with the consumer opportunities of the Germans was studied by the analytical company Future Consumer Index, according to which, half of the surveyed German citizens admitted that they were forced to limit their purchases to only the most necessary. Many frankly admit that they have to be outside more often in order to save electricity and gas in their homes.

The main reason for the deplorable state of the German economy was the energy crisis, which caused inflation, which eats into the income of Germans intended for the consumption of goods and services, said Michael Renz, head of consumer goods and trade at EY Germany.

According to Welt, more than half of Germans have significantly reduced their spending on clothing, electronics, fuel, medicines.

At the same time, more than 95% of Germans expect a further rise in the cost of living, the publication states. The Scholz government is going to borrow 200 billion euros to cover rising costs. But these loans will fall on the shoulders of a new generation of German citizens and may, in addition, provoke another surge in inflation.

    Well, beat and beat. The margin of safety is still preserved. If they can persuade our people to negotiate, then some of them will return their positions in the economy, of course, not all. So the train left. But I still don’t believe that Germany will conditionally turn into Bengladesh. Strong inertia in the brain probably I have laughing

            The question here is not about hungry and frozen Fritz. Here's another:-
            Every time, at the moment of raising tariffs in Russia, the deterioration of the life of its Russian citizens, at the moment of theft of state property from all the broadcasters, from the zomboyaschik they begin to howl about the difficult life in the West. Geyropa is freezing, our political informants are starving. The main thing is to shift the focus of vision from your problems to others. hi

          Imagine growing up. Russia uses 20 percent of its potential in ukroreikh, pities the people, their own and the Independents. But after all, everything can turn in such a way that a total war will begin. And then both Kyiv and Lvov, I'm not talking about other cities, will turn into a scorched desert. Do you need it?

            Yes, why did you even make such a "profound" conclusion that I am from Ukraine? If I don't like how the economy of the Russian Federation is "developing", then I'm from Ukraine? If I don't like how this "non-war" is going on, does that mean I'm from Ukraine? If I criticize corrupt officials in power, then I am from Ukraine? Dig into my comments and you will see where I am from.

      People driven to poverty can easily be knocked out of pantalik and inertia in the brains - to squeeze expenses down to the last pfennig - turn into an irresistible desire to take a gun in hand and start taking bread and butter from more well-fed neighbors.

      Everything goes to the fact that the Anglo-Saxons will squeeze everything out of the EU population without a trace, in order to bring them to such a degree of poverty and bestiality that a world war flares up again on the European continent.
      And judging by the fact that the population of the EU and NATO countries still does not particularly resist and meekly accepts all methods of bullying, the Anglo-Saxons will most likely increase pressure on Europe so as not to drag out this process for a long time.

      The Anglo-Saxons, on the other hand, see what happened with Ukraine - part of the population slumped and silently accepted all the mockery of themselves - which means that this will also work with Western Europeans.

          Go outside more often to save electricity and gas.
          Haven't heard more bullshit.
          You can sit at home in the dark, and for any warmer than on the street.
          But perhaps they are sitting in a kneip (beer house) in order to save electricity and gas?
          But then you have to order something there, and that means giving away the money that could have been paid for electricity and gas.

        Raising all over Russia, don’t really need it. How much is it in Ryazan now? Not what hour, but outside? And we have minus 20. It’s not frost yet. The normal one will always find where to earn money. Excuse me, this is my opinion. Here are the Uzbeks who came to our city, for some reason they earn money, but you have nowhere to go in Ryazan? .. Well, in general, it is everyone's choice how to live.

        A German will NEVER take off his last pants.
        He mentioned about 500 thousand in connection with the publication in Deutscheveil for July-August. A small article ... the conclusion is that during the post-war period the Germans accumulated a maximum of resources in personal accounts, and this MAY be a problem for the Fed budget. Well, further small statistics.
        Germans are Germans. Have you heard about the annual study of the thickness of the fatty layer of a burgher in the 3rd Reich?

            Alexei. 16% below the poverty line is just minuscule.
            The "poverty line" in each country is a completely individual feeling.
            For example, I did not understand by what criteria it was determined.
            Example .... today we have that .. Thursday.

            On Saturday, a small resort village on the border of Deutsch, Paul, Czech. Huge resort complex (in svianów zdroj). The German invited to his 90!!! anniversary more than one and a half hundred guests ... an orchestra and other crap until 2 am.
            Do you know what he said to the call to rest?? "I ask you to forgive me, but I ask for respect for the money I spent." Moreover, the guests paid for the rooms separately, and he himself paid about 250-300 thousand euros for everything about everything. (for three days of pleasing guests).
            So "fact" is a very subjective thing.
            And if about weapons .... then it’s not for me to tell you. Adyu.

        Will the Russian Federation have the strength to raise all this to the "required result"? - No. But to divide the budget and profits between the "allies" is what is needed.
        So adieu - destroy further what you can earn on later.

    Everything “feeds” the Ukrainian girl, but with a loan ... it will turn out like in our saying: give your wife to your uncle, and go to hell yourself ...

    Only the stock index of manufacturing enterprises in Germany is breaking new growth records .... Leave these tales about poor and unfortunate Germans for the poor ...

      Here they tell the poor, those who did not have the opportunity to work or simply travel around Europe.

    If we were talking, for example, about the Albanians, one could believe and admit the "poverty level", but about the Germans and "poverty" it is somehow embarrassing to even think about.

    What is this going on? Will the remnants of the Germans freeze again this winter?

    At first I thought, wow, wow, what a brave author, he staggers the braces! And then I read it more carefully. Phew, relieved. This is all not here, but in Germany. In the Russian Federation, everything is in order. laughing

    The margin of safety is still preserved.

    For now, yes, but the burghers seem to be able to forget about the times of carefree life ..

    Unfortunately, this is not good for us. It turns out that we are economically butting with a German to the delight of the Anglo-Saxons. Well, they will bring the nemchura, frogs (and with our help) to impoverishment, then the nemchura will remember who they are and the Anglo-Saxons will explain to them that all their troubles are from Russia .... And again, united Europe will once again be sent to fight with us.

    And in Russia, everything with poverty is apparently excellent, since they have already switched to Germany ?!
    And what kind of nonsense, how can you save gas while being outside in winter, and even without light you can sit at home ???

    Poverty in Germany breaks a half-century record

    The poverty rate in Germany is not visible from Washington, so "jump on"!

    In Holland, they complain that beef has risen in price to 10 euros. And our meat has long been above 10 euros, but wages in Holland start at 10 euros an hour, and in Russia pensions start at 200 euros. And where they live poorer, probably in Africa, but we are below some African countries.

    They are all right there. Yes, a little worse than it was, but the tourist does not even notice it. Usually, the country's poverty is visible by the increase in homeless people, empty buildings, broken windows, walls painted with bad words and garbage on the streets. None of this has yet been observed in Germany (?). Outwardly: as it was, it is, no worse than in Moscow.
