Almost two-thirds of Germans are hoping to return to the Deutschmark as their currency, instead of the euro.The Daily Mail of London reports that, “this is the largest number ever to voice doubts on the single currency since it replaced the building bloc of the postwar ‘economic miracle’ a decade ago.”
Germany’s Bertelsmann Foundation released poll results on Monday saying that some 65 percent of Germans believe their personal situation would be better if they still had the D-mark, compared to 36 percent of French who miss the franc.
According to the Mail, “The Germans are also less attached to the European Union, suggested the poll, which was conducted July 3 to 8 in both countries.”
Germany’s highest court endorsed bailout funds for the euro that will cost German taxpayers $151 billion – 60 percent of all tax revenues for this year.
