Germany 2024-2025: In need of re-inventing its economic model

Hit by the Western mega-crisis, with all escape routes blocked, Germany must reinvent urgently its economic model to stop its decline.

After the Allied victory over Hitler, the US and other Western Allies established the Federal Republic of Germany to harness German economic power[1] against the Soviet Union[2]. However, the 500-year-old Western model failed to establish a lasting peaceful world order. We have now reached the breaking point of that world order.

Germany, geographically situated at the heart of Europe, serves as its central political, economic, and financial pillar. The continuous influx of large numbers of immigrants into one of Europe’s most densely populated countries, the rise of the AfD, the cut-off of necessary energy supplies, economic recession, ongoing protests among farmers and workers, conflicts in Ukraine and the Middle East, and the looming threats of de-risking with China – all converge, placing Germany at the epicenter of Europe’s current multi-crisis[3].
