Queen Canute tries to stop the waves

Die dummkopfe Königin Angela "Canute" Merkel thinks she can buck the market (i.e. the global aggregation of voluntary human desires).

Good Luck, Angela. I hope the angels are with you.

I also hope you have a lot more ink to print a lot more zeroes on your paper, which will soon reach its basic intrinsic value; which is that of poor quality firelighters.

You would have thought that the same government which generated the Weimar inflation would know better. Ah, but then that is to assume that governments are collectively capable of learning the lessons and remembering the decisions which landed Europe in two decades of appalling fascism.
