Opinion – Merkel: Germany Strong Enough to Handle Migrant Influx – WSJ – John Gelmini

Angela Merkel, in her red Mrs Thatcher lookalike power top, looks and probably sounds confident about Germany’s ability to absorb and utilise the 1 million Syrian refugees inclusive of economic migrants.

Probably, Germany can absorb them and temporarily resolve its demographic problems, the concern is not the 1 million who are here already but the new arrivals who may be trudging Westward as we speak.

It is in the future, long after Angela Merkel has moved on, that the trouble will begin.

As German industry automates to compete more effectively and become more globally competitive and flexible, these migrants and refugees will no longer be needed and by that time, there will be their children to contend with.
