This is a somewhat worrying story from Harold James published by Project Syndicate. This is a MUST READ article, in my view. Check it out!

via Financial Crisis and War by Harold James – Project Syndicate.

Harold James is Professor of History and International Affairs at Princeton University and Professor of History at the European University Institute, Florence. He’s a specialist on German economic history.

The historical analysis is really interesting but it’s important remember that other historians see matters very differently. The parallels between 2014 and 1914 are quite sobering but it’s important to remember that history is a poor predictor of the future.

On the other hand, the story will certainly appeal to conspiracy theorists. No doubt they will be citing the French ban on Mercedes cars which is provoking German fury according to the FT.

Any thoughts?
