Germany's #1 Newspaper Goes Into Hysterics Over The Slightest Mention Of Inflation

This is why Germany can never support a Eurozone solution that might actually work…

As was just tweeted out by think tank Open Europe, this is actually the cover of the German tabloid Bild today.

The backstory is that there have been some headlines in recent days about maybe the Bundesbank thinking that a slightly higher rate of inflation might be appropriate.

his is a big deal for the Buba (the Bundesbank) since the Germans are so anti-inflation.

And that caused Bild to run this INFLATION ALARM headline on its front page. Could you imagine the new York Post running a huge screamer about a 2.5% CPI.

Anyway, the actual article is even more ridiculous.

It contains a picture of a Weimar-era note.

Anyway, this Venn Diagram from @pawelmorski certainly comes to mind.
