Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Yes, but have you seen the federal deficit numbers? Even the good economic situation, the VAT tax increase and several other measures did not bring that budget into balance.

And if the 2006 "Kredite in Milliardenhöhe" is really high by sustainability standards is not clear to me either. The total debt of BW is 44 bn Euro. Alone current inflation would reduce the level of debt by more than one billion per year in real terms. The state would have been able to go without tuition fees and simply borrow the money.
