Germans pessimistic about economic upside of refugee influx

A new survey has revealed that most Germans believe the influx of refugees will not provide an economic boost.

Only 16 percent of those surveyed agreed with the statement “the influx of refugees will result in more economic opportunities than problems for us,” according to the survey conducted by the Ipsos Institute on behalf of the Hamburg researcher Horst Opaschowski.


They’re right. Mass immigration is no longer an economic boon.

It may make a few people richer by creating a shortage of rental housing, or by depressing wages, it will likely ensure the creation of make work projects for bureaucrats.

But that’s about all, no one is building massive public works projects on a national scale requiring hordes of unskilled labour.

There are no frontiers to be settled in Germany, only urban slums to further crowd or create anew.

    I’m sure glad we are only getting the good muslims.

    Pretending there is an economic upside of mass invasion of people who will not assimilate, will not work but will bankrupt your socialist programs and kill you at the first opportunity is beyond stupid.

    • This is madness.

    • Yo Mama

      You just don’t understand Islamic economics from history.

      Once they pillage all they can and bring dhimminitude to the “non-believers” they will have great wealth once all the Kaffirs are their slave labour.

  • Why? Are there droves of skilled “refugees” flooding the place?

    • Exile1981

      only if the skills your looking for are beheading; arson; clock making and raping.

      • See- that’s where I would never fit in. My skills set fall into the more clerical and less bodily harm aspects of the marketplace.

        • Exile1981

          Well then it’s obvious we need muslim refugees to do the jobs you can’t doo.

    • Yo Mama

      Yes there are. They are skilled at demanding government welfare checks and demanding sharia law be imposed.

    This needs to be corrected with reeducation camps for all Germans who question the need for more immigration and to make it an integral parts of all kids schooling.

    All ‘refugees’ are Fullbright Scholars did you not get the memo?
