Thomas Piketty: “Germany has never repaid.”
Daily KOS, by Lamont Cranston, July 8, 2015

In a blistering interview with the German newspaper Die Zeit, Piketty blasts Germany and it's history of repayment of debt over the years, and it's attitudes toward its fellow EU neighbor, Greece. …

Since his successful book, “Capital in the Twenty-First Century,” the Frenchman Thomas Piketty has been considered one of the most influential economists in the world. His argument for the redistribution of income and wealth launched a worldwide discussion. In a interview with George Blume of DIE ZEIT, he gives his clear opinions on the European debt debate.
