Re: Germany so strong economically b/c it didn't colonialise (much)?
(Original post by DynamicSyngery)
Britain is better off than Germany with respect to the Euro crisis, having both low borrowing costs and much less exposure to Southern European debt. Why do you think that having fewer Indians results in less financial services, btw?
With respect to any other supposed problems in the British economy, the post-crash GDPPC is about the same. How long have you been living in Britain to conclude there isn't a middle class? It just has a different connotation to in places like America, where most people consider themselves middle class; in Britain people with the same jobs prefer to see themselves as working class.
The first paragraph hardly relates to what I wrote (I never said stuff about Indians, wtf?).
The second paragraph would be superfluous if you had read tehFrance's comment about my incorrect use of the term "middle class" when I was referring to the German idea of "Mittelstand".
