Unlocking the German mind, part 372

Have a look at this chart.  Was the problem:

a)  Irresponsible mismanagement of the budget?

b)  Reckless abandonment of sensible monetary principles?

c)  The punitive effects of the Versailles Treaty?

d)  Wrecking your country with a cynical, inhuman, imperialistic military agenda that no one in their right mind thought could ever succeed, while earning the ill-will of every other nation on planet earth except for Austria and possibly Finland and Argentina?


...I suspect I might answer differently from a German central banker.

"Earning ill will?" You mean, "Losing the war?"

As we learned later, they were hated when they won, too. Because they were dicks.

Those Prussian bastards are why my ancestors left, I think. Or the food crisis of 1887. Or something.
