Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
France has a slight surplus of its capital accounts balance, while Germany actually has a deficit

So "External balance of goods and services" (Germany: 7.7% of GDP ; France: -2.1% of GDP [for 2006-Q3]) is a totally different beast than "capital accounts balance"?

(I am in dire need of taking Econ 101.)

Truth unfolds in time through a communal process.
