takes time out today in his Gartman Letter to discuss the ongoing fight between Germany and Greece, and how basically the two countries have been reduced to school-yard taunts.

How does Germany have the cheek to denounce us over our finances when it has still not paid compensation for Greece’s war victims? There are still Greeks weeping for their lost brothers.
