to be fair, it's a bit more complex than that.  You are correct, especially from a worker's perspective.  But we (i can say we, i suppose, as a german taxpayer), we also do the heavy lifting.

And there is the small beginnings of a move to put risk back onto the bondholders etc.  Please remember that financial institutions control many governments, not just in Germany.

We're all in this together.
