Be More Like Germany?

While, admittedly, I despise most of Europe for their historical nonsense and disdain for individual freedom, it's a sad state of affairs when the New York Slimes economists are saying we need to be more like Germany. 


IN many countries, including the United States, there are calls for the government to spend more to jump-start the economy, and to avoid the temptation to cut back as debts mount.
Germany, however, has decided to cast its lot with fiscal prudence. It has managed rising growth and falling unemployment, while putting together a plan for a nearly balanced budget within six years. On fiscal policy and economic recovery, Americans could learn something from the German example.

Yikes.  The NY Times saying we need to follow fiscal solvency plans?  Enter Seinfeld Bizzaro World.
