In this episode, we consider whether Germany's Gigantic €200 billion energy-relief scheme could be threatened by EU's regulations on state subsidies.
One solution is a federal Europe, or just more federalism. In both USA and India, state governments can spend money as via subsidies. Personally, I do not like subsidies and would like to abolish them. At the same time, I accept that governments and citizens can make bad decisions to spend money even if it is stupid, unwise and irrational.
