I just came across an interesting article showing that the gold reserves of Germany, Europe's largest economy, are actually held in America. Germany's gold is in U.S. custody, Bundesbank confirms
Now I'm economically not very knowledgeable but I wonder if this might have implications for Euro stability in an extreme economic crisis situation.
Suppose for example the Americans refused to return the gold.
Would that cause a collapse of the Euro and a return of Weimar inflation?
