Germany putting rest of Europe to shame in its support of Displaced People and Refugees
Geege Schuman stashed this in International Incidents
As to why Germany will be taking in a much larger share of asylum-seekers, Gabriel said it's “because we are an economically strong country, without doubt.":)
So it would be much more economically taxing for the less wealthy nations to take in people.
But it's not all altruism on Germany's part. Germany needs young people.
Well then it's a win-win. So why is Germany trying to make other countries feel bad for not taking in people?
