Germany Is The Most Responsible Country In The World

Germany has been involved in some unpleasantness which I'm generally willing to overlook, but that doesn't give them license to create myths about their more recent existence.

I've long been a bit amused by the fact that Tribe Econ tends to idolize Germany and also ignore the reasons for success. Just how does a generous welfare state high wage country achieve success in exporting high value manufacturing goods? Unpossible! Something something German character or something. I don't know.
