The DAX has dramatically declined in importance in recent years as Germany has fallen behind in every single new technology and industry such as AI, cloud, 3D printing, e-mobility, 5G, blockchaing, cryptocurrencies, NFTs, and so on.

Germany’s wealth and power is built on technologies from the previous industrial revolution: Coal and steam power, fax machines, copper telephone lines, cash payments and paper-based bureaucracy and corruption. We have become far too complacent and arrogant to ever become the world’s powerhouse of innovation and science.
