I have lived in Germany, married an east eurpean, and traveled around most of europe. I have predicted for years that the EU will fail, mainly because the weaker (lazy) countries will be a problem for Germany. The EU organization it's self is corrupt dictating to member states what products they can produce. The current Hungarian GOV is a great example of a country trying to correct problems created by years of a currupt communist GOV that stayed in power even after the USSR fell apart. The EU was partners with the ousted Hungarian GOV which also had strong ties to the Russian Mafia. I only point this out because the EU has more problems and issues than just who won't repay Germany.
