Focus: Germany is turning into a state of beggars

An incredible increase in the entire range of prices, especially for energy, which has led to an increase in the cost of living, threatens to collapse the German society. For Germany, this could have dramatic consequences. In fact, Germany is on the way to becoming one of the depressed states, the country of the poor. The German sociologist Ulrich Schneider spoke about this in an interview with the local edition of Focus.

The almost instantaneous increase in the cost of living has led to an increase in poverty or even destitution. And this happens in not the very last the economy EU, but in Germany. People who were somehow low-income became even poorer, their purchasing power sank even more. Such segments of the population no longer know how they can financially live for a month. The expert warns about it. In his opinion, the composition of the impoverished strata of society has expanded too much, has acquired a dangerous mass.

Schneider also points out that even the middle class are beginning to experience difficulties.

The worst thing is that there are no reserves, in which case a faulty washing machine or a scheduled car maintenance quickly turn into a real disaster.

Schneider says.

Summing up, the sociologist bitterly states that for those who are still afloat, anxiety due to the crisis is gradually turning into real fear. Those who have suffered, turning into beggars, are already moving into a state of despair.

    I personally put high hopes on Germany.
    It’s somehow closer to me that in Russia there are 20 million people below the line poverty, and the same at the edge poverty.
    In other words, 20 million poor + 20 million poor = 40 million poor (28%) out of a total population of 145 million. In a country that has the entire periodic table in its depths.

    Focus: Germany is turning into a state of beggars

    This is closer to the truth:
    Ivan Rybin

    According to official data - that is, according to Rosstat - in the Russian Federation, the average family, as of 2021, spent more than 32% of their income on buying food. But this is exactly what, according to official data and as of last year, when food was on average 50% cheaper. Sugar has since become more expensive by 100-120%, flour - about the same, vegetable oil - by 50-70%, cereals - by 50-100%, milk by about a third, or even more. Etc.
    For some reason, no one is doing a calculation for 2022, but, apparently, the figure for spending on food in the Russian Federation has grown far beyond 50% and it is scary to publish it. And so - like nothing happens

    Horrible. Anonymous.
    Putin just recently said that we are still fighting hard against poverty....and we are slowly defeating it....though the population is declining greatly and getting sick.

    And acquaintances write that food prices in Germany are equal to Russian ones. They used to be much higher...

    They raised the level and bar of life at home ..... at the same time the bar and the level of prices for services automatically rose ..... that is, in order to live, you have to pay more ... and now incomes have collapsed and prices have soared even higher ... .everything.... the chain and the system collapsed. And there is no way to return everything to a low level - the capitalist system for squeezing money, like in the United States, works to the fullest. It is in Russia that the poor can live in peace...nothing there. Ka example. What is natural and not noticed in Russia is wildness and is forbidden in the USA and Europe - I'm talking about vegetable gardens and other house plots where in Russia you can freely grow anything without asking anyone ..... feeding a family .... not forgetting the technology of grandmothers according to canning food...but there....nickname...everything is forbidden..and if you try to grow at least one cucumber near the house on your territory, then a big fine and only in supermarkets.

    I will tell all the commentators, we are talking about Germany, not Russia. We are in different situations and positions. We have 15000 sanctions, but the Germans do not. There have always been sanctions on us. And we live very well. All of you who talk about the poverty line do not live below it. Are you liberals ...., have you seen a lot of people working below the poverty line? These are mostly those who drove themselves there. For example drunk.
