Disunited Germany

In an e-mail, Alan Little also wonders if Germany wouldn’t be better off splitting up:

having lived six years in Bavaria where we have 5-6% unemployment, compared to 25-30% in parts of the former East, it crosses my mind fm time to time that Bavaria could be a lot better off (absent any military threat from the north) throwing its lot in with Austria than with the Prussian rustbelt.

Especially if we could figure out a way to get the South Tirol back from Italy.

That’s without starting another European War, I presume.
