German angst

Posted on: 18. September 2009

Germans are known to worry about unnecessary things all the time. In English-speaking countries, this phenomenon is called „German angst“.
German angst
I have to admit that there might be some truth in it. There is indeed a tendency in this country to panic about things that leave other nationalities rather unimpressed.

According to a long-term study by an insurance company, the top 5 fears of Germans in the year 2009 were:

1. decline of the economic climate(66%)
2. higher unemployment(65%)
3. cost of living increase(63%)
4. natural disaster(56%)
5. nursing care when you’re old (54%)

Higher unemployment has been a fairly popular fear for years, as well as cost of living increase. What are you scared of?
What are your top five fears?
