Germany inflation: Families struggle with cost of living

この記事を書いている人 - WRITER -

The Eurozone is reporting record inflation, with the rate now at its highest since records began in 1997.
In the 19 countries that use the Euro, the rate has soared to 8.6 per cent.
And that is sending the cost of living to new highs.

Al Jazeera’s @Dominic Kane reports from Berlin, Germany.

      What are the odds that all those billions land in offshore accounts?

    • Avatar bloodndestroy says:

      @Malte-Frederick Ahrenberger A couple hundred million of those already landed in mine 🙂 It was more than I expected!

    • Avatar bloodndestroy says:

      So true! So many people I know throw away meals when they’ve only eaten half of it. Those people better not complain about rising prices now.

    • Avatar Pallab Saha says:

      Germany is among the top food wasters in the world per capita. It is time children are taught to value food.

    But we are sending more humanitarian aid then we are using for our own people plus we are bringing the most amount of money to EU payed the most acces Fees.. We adopted the Euro where our own currency ‘deutsche mark’ lost half its value – so you had one million on your bank and the next day you had 500.000€ and we had a hugh problem. Then we payed and payed into EU to help Greec with hugh financial crisis and any other develomping country in the east and at the end they are saying ‘we don’t even care to pay this all back into EU – wy woudl we?’ Sure 👍 plus the Hugh amount of Refugees are getting everyone money ‘social help’ so let’s keep paying until everyone is happy, rigth. Rigth…..

    We have a social minimum care witch every citizen no matter who or from where you are gets. It’s called ‘Harz 4’ it’s at the moment 494,00€ and your hole Apartment, so someone who lives for rent, will get payed from the state so they get the hole rent + 494 €. Unless you got a apartment witch is to big for your self.

    ‘the hole west’ is bad. ‘everyone wants to live here and many people are risking their lives to get here but everyone is the evil. – rigth?…
    We are losing our own country and culter no one is proud saying I’m German anymore and that’s mainly because we are walking in a wrong path.
    Yes we have to help but I don’t want to help someone who maybe is a terrorist who hates everyone.. That’s also our own problem we don’t care to integrate them we just give them money money money so they maybe shut up.. Yey that’s a good selucion – we have a hugh problem with family clan’s from every where they blow up Bank ATMs and rob Cash transporters – Jewelers and and.. Its getting more and more problematic and all this was never such a big deal here its sad to see how badly we do our own land and people.

    • Avatar Black Flag says:

      The problem with Germany is that they spent too much on the apartheid state. It’s not even a poor country like Afghanistan that needs humanitarian aid

    • Avatar hamid hamidi says:

      The problem is Germany is not really independent. It has to follow the US. No other choice.

    • Avatar blyatiful says:

      well germany not only really depend on russia oil and u guys provoke them hoping doesnt back fire, also u leader follow washington order just like most EU

    • Avatar Alexander says:

      @blyatiful we stand for Ukrain and democracy plus diplomatic selucion not autocracy way wehre you just because Ukrain is saying ‘bad Russia – we hate Russia’ you invade a country just while the people of country are more and more against you.. You know that the top 1% of Russia has more money then the 99% of Russia’s people? Isn’t this something you shoudl highlight? In 2014 so many people sad ‘no Russia with Putin’ but know you get what ur ‘Tsars’ ‘wants 👍 let’s hope it will turn out good for the Russian people.. Just like Belarus

      Just by the way democracy don’t mean only free elections. The most important part of an democratic state is the decentralized system with the 3 pillars of the rights.

    • Avatar Skankhunt420 says:

      @Virtual-R a huge load from the CPI was due to housing price rises. They’ve dropped 10% in the last couple months and the banks are now saying the CPIs around 5%. Rent has also dropped 7% and Australia is expecting their house prices to drop as much as 15% to 20% this year

      Suffering is not quantifiable for some. I tell my children, “If everyone in the world threw all their problems onto a pile, you’d gladly take yours back and run home.” It’s sad people from mostly well-off countries live with such individualistic views. I live in the U.S. and I truly believe that every 18 year old should be forced to live (safely) in a developing country for 3 months before they start the rest of their lives. I have been lucky to travel the world. I have seen amazing sites and learned multiple languages, but I’ve also seen sadness, starvation, sickness, pain and other horrible, horrible things that go on all over the world (including down the street from me because I am wise enough to know that struggle is not just × thousands of miles away). Parents need to do better.

    Actually what is in the news in Germany is the lack of flight attendants. After the Corona restrictions the majority of people (not the minority of poor people living on social welfare) are eager to go on holiday again, but the airlines are overwhelmed by the willing to travel. So I guess people in Germany still have a lot of money. On the other side, in Russia they soon will have to worry about planes falling from the skies, now that Western technology will be missing, but they still have their fake Starbucks and McDonalds 🤣

Europe so dumb , after this war Europe economy will set back 10 years relative to US. For years to come Europe tax payer will need to pay huge amount of money for US weapons maintenance , which further drag Europe economy.

There is a price for freedom you just experiencing that price. Go home and accept starvation for Ukraine
