Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Nobody here is begrudging Germany its exports.

Apart from you.

 >What I and others are saying is that Germany needs to either stop short-charging its workers so they can start importing stuff from other European countries, or accept that Germany will never get paid for its exports.<

They could also import from non-euro countries; what then?

 >Because there is one and only one way to pay for exports: Through imports.<

Germany is also one of the biggest importers in the world.

 <The low-wage service sector may be unimportant to the export side (to low order), but it is very important to the import side.>

But then you are shifting your argument
