Since the fall of the Berlin Wall 25 years
ago, Germany has established itself as Europe’s largest economy. But their economy
is also starting to show some signs of decline, and there are fears that this could
lead to a recession. So what impact is this dip having on Germany? And how powerful is
the country overall? Well, the short answer is they are very powerful,
with some potentially growing weaknesses. For one thing, German may have
to cut back on their military. They currently have the world’s 7th strongest
military force, employing 183,000 active troops. That’s behind other European countries
like France and the UK, and quite a ways behind the USA and China, but it’s
still a sizable amount. They’re also at the forefront of developing military technology.
The problem is that maintaining this military and developing new technology is an expensive
endeavor that Germany may not be able to afford. According to a recent leaked
report, “Only one of [Germany’s] four submarines is operational” and “just seven
of the German Navy’s fleet of 43 helicopters are flightworthy.” They’ve also had problems with broken down
aircrafts. This recently stopped troops from returning home from Afghanistan and hindered
the nation’s effort to join the fight against both ISIS and Ebola. German defense
minister Ursula von der Leyen has admitted that the country’s military is facing equipment
shortages so severe that it cannot meet its NATO commitments,
which could be a serious blow to their status in Europe. So, why is the largest economy in the EU unable
to afford something as simple as vehicle repairs? Well, their economic growth has slowed for
a number of reasons. They have Europe’s most ambitious renewable energy
plan, which has yet to offer any clear financial returns. They’ve also had slower
export growth in China than expected, and are unable to continue their normal trade
with Russia because of sanctions. Germany is reportedly losing over $100 million euros
this year alone, due to a now-canceled arms deal with Russia. Despite all of that, Germany’s economy is
still strong and they have enormous political power. They’re a founding member
of the EU, a contributing member of NATO, and they’re extremely active in the United
Nations. So, even if Germany were to find itself in a recession, it would still maintain
its political place as the leading power in Europe. It would just have to tighten its
belt a bit, to stay there financially. To find out more about the Russia-Ukraine
conflict and the effect it’s having on Europe and the rest of the world, please click

    Germany is really really good at war. They may have lost WWI, WWII, but they make for those defeats with the FIFA! They won the FIFA World Cup! And they may just be able to win again. I’m rooting for Germany 🇩🇪! You can do it you you crazy crazies!

    You forget about something keyed, the German Army is incapacitated. It is still occupied by the US, their general staff is incorporated into NATO! They can not do anything! Death to the Germans

  • Linus Post author

    I am from Germany, and for the germans the "Bundeswehr" (Army) is not so important like economy, development, science and things like that. We have to take into account requirements, given by the UN, Nato and co, because of WorldWar2.

  • Honk Honk Post author

    Well, since the end of ww2, germany and Austria werent allowed (continues till 2070) to have a Millitary. But if they should get attacked, the USA and who knows which country will help them. So, yes, Germany has a Military, but its not official. So no wonder no one sees a need for this. Why would you spend money into something, that you wont be able to use for 50 years?

  • choschnebab Post author

    that Germany can't afford its own Military is wrong. We are currently making no debts so there would be money but there is simply no need to put more money into the military.

    Germany Is powerful nation considering its relative small size and Geo location. It is very advanced country. No surprise USA is very advanced also. The largest Ethic group in America has German roots. We have close ties to them even though a lot of people font see this.

    the reason why so many vehicles dont work is not, a declining economy, but more the fact, that germany doesnt even want to put more money in the military

  • ava lanch Post author

    Just don't give them guns,or red bits of cloth


    Even if Germany builds up its military to extensive levels the us would probably put pressure on them but they can’t declare war on them because they don’t have the public on their side

  • TokranInami Post author

    Its a misconception that germans inability to maintain its military equipment comes from financial or economical problems. It's nearly 100% an organisational problem. For many years now a sizeable part of the defense budget went unspent, because there were not enough people available to negotiate and maintain defense contracts.
    This is also the reason, why german could not increase its military spending to 2% of the GDP in the short term, even if it wanted to. Military HW needs to be developed, produced and purchased, all of which takes time.

  • jitendra tiwari Post author

    But German didn't learn one thing, you need alliance. In second w w, do you know why British won because they had large pool of army from their colonial states. At that time also german technology was far more advanced than their opponents but they loose war because they didn't have manpower to deal their opponents. Now this is a time of automaton. But you need to do both, first work on artificial intelligence and also make alliance with south American countries and INDIA.because British and American halted their growth by political interfering in those nations. Both Japan and Germany need to work together against this autocracy.

  • Jj Chen Post author

    Germany was winning the European war. They controlled almost all of Europe save for Russia. They had fenced the British in and forced the British on the defensive. But then Germany invaded Russia. And that was a bad idea as their army froze to death over there.

    Germany has great potential but the fatherland has been handcuffed for a century now ever since WW2 and being betrayed by treasonous leadership who is allowing a silent invasion of it's sovereignty.
    It was German scientists who invented the atomic bomb while every other nation reaps the glory with stolen German technology. If Germany is truly an ally than remove all post war restrictions!

    I heard a rumor that Germany will be one of the strongest nations in the world. You are just waiting for the right leader.

  • Sreejesh Post author

    I heard Germans are cold people and they never smile. I heard they are hardworking. I heard they love their language so much that they expect even the foreigners visiting for a week not to use English. I read that they killed almost all Jews and Romanees lived in their land for centuries.
    To be frank, I have rarely interacted with Germans, but so far haven't heard many good about them. But one thing is true for sure, the German products have excellent quality, and I love their cars.

    Germany was defeated and humiliated by UK and France in WWI. Germany still made it self poweful enough to survive.

    Germany conquered almost whole Europe and because of war with USSR once again defeated by the allied forces and almost completely destroyed and broke into two parts.

    Still after this humiliation and destruction. Germans proved themselves a Great Nation by rebuilding their country and making it a great power of Europe once again.
    UK and France are powerful because of looting and occupying the gold, minerals and resources of America Asia and African colonies. On the other hand Germany became powerful only because of their hardworking and talented Nation.
    Lots of Love and Huge Respect for Great Country Germany and their Great German Nation from The Islamic Republic of Pakistan
