The short sellers were forced to buy their fally Gamestop shares to the high courses and drove rough losses. The billions-heavy hedge funds Melvin Capital was therefore shortly before the insufficiency.

If one believes European top politicians, then an economic end of the world was avoided by them, the risk indicators of the financial markets, on the other hand, expose the crisis as a rather minor event

No sooner had the financial markets got over the initial shock than the stock markets and, above all, the euro continued their downward slide.

Euro debt to be really repaid".

Ackermann’s doubts are justified, and not only in the case of Greece, since there is hardly a country that has ever repaid its debts on a sustained basis. In the end, it was the highest of feelings when a country was able to keep the ratio of gross national product to debt constant, i.e. when the economy grew faster than the debt. But this is far from being the end of the story. In fact, Germany, like almost all other OECD countries, was mostly forced to pay the interest on old debt with new debt at the peak of the economic cycle.
