Greeks mock Germans

FINANCIAL CRISIS: Germany have been the most critical.

SINCE the financial crisis in Greece, the German government has been the most critical as far as the Greek economy is concerned, and has insisted that stringent financial policies be followed if a ‘bailout’ was to take place.

Now, in a typical example of what the Germans call schadenfreude (pleasure derived from someone else’s misfortune), Greeks are taking to social media to taunt Germany over the enormous losses and low share price of its major bank, Deutsche Bank.

The amusement may not last for long, but at least it lifted the financial gloom a little.
