  1. Hi Jamie,
    this is just another one of these ridiculous European jokes. I am born and bred in Schleswig-Holstein, and without any emotional attachment there is only one possible result of any serious analysis: it is bust for about twenty years plus… same for the Landesbank S-H now absorbed into the Nordbank. Absurd what the national guarantee can achieve… why do they even bother to separately rate the Länder?

    Keep Calm and Carry On, :-)
