    Post How Many Nordish Germanics Left?

    Does anyone know how many Nordish Germanic people there are left? I'm guessing it's around 200 million but I can't find reliable statistics.

    What would one use for criteria? Percentages of certain nationalities? If so, it would be easy to make some calculations.

    Seems far-fetched. I wish it would happen. But for example, Germany's strongest ally is France, not any other Germanic country.

    Nordish will be defined along McCulloch's lines. Germanic will include ethnic Dutch, Flemish, German, Austrian, Dane, Norwegian, Swede, and English. The situation is a bit complicated in the former colonies (take Australia and the USA, for example), Switzerland, and regions of the UK.

    Did he not make his own calculation?

    That was one bright Dutchman. That is common knowledge though. The Dutch were the biggest net contributors in 2002. Those who contribute more also receive more. It is not just Southern European Mediterranean countries. Even Ireland benefited a lot on the expense of others, but I have a great respect for them. The Celtic Tiger, is of course a product of the Irish themselves, but EU played a large role, as well as US investment. Another success is the low tax regime of Ireland. Taking productivity into account Irish workers are half the price of those in Germany. Ireland with its average annual growth rate has historically sought allies in the French and Spanish. Maybe it is like the Swedish anthropologist suggested, that one can find a common Celtic espirit between the Irish and French.

    There is already a union between the Nordic countries. We already have the Nordic Council/Nordic Council of Ministers.

    Business: The Economy The EU Budget explained - "Germany has been by far the biggest net contributor, along with some of the smaller rich countries like the Netherlands, Sweden and Austria."

    "Italy claims to have a black economy - which pays no tax - equal to 25% of its economy."

    Isn't that just lovely about Italy?

    EU budget generates major net transfers into Cohesion Countries - "In relative terms, Sweden was the largest net contributor (0.50 % of GNP)"

    EU budget : All Member States benefit the poorer more than the others

    Member states getting impatient on EU budget
    EU states pressed to "pay up" as budget battle looms

    As strange it may sound many EU-critical parties won seats in the latest election for the European Parliament. It is interesting to see that the "new" EU from the former "Eastern-Block" are so happy that they joined, while some fractions in the "old" EU countries are pessimistic about the relevance of EU.

    I spoke with a dutch about 4 days ago. We discussed the EU and he meant

    IMO all Scandinavian Germanics are Nordish (less with the Danish), and a half (or maybe somewhat more or less) of Continental and English Germanics is Nordish.

    That's significantly less than 200M (for Europe).

    Just my 2 cents.

    That's a fair estimate, I think, for Europe. But then one could add the numbers of the diaspora in Australia, South Africa & America.
