you can not say capitalism is not successful

capitalism works so well – eventually it will destroy the everything.

Wohlstandsgefälle in Deutschland nimmt weiter zu


Volltext der dpa-Meldung:
In Deutschland gibt es einer Studie zufolge nach wie vor ein riesiges Wohlstandsgefälle zwischen den Regionen. Im bundesweit wohlhabendsten Landkreis Starnberg bei München war das durchschnittlich verfügbare Pro-Kopf-Einkommen der Privathaushalte zuletzt mit 34 987 Euro mehr als doppelt so hoch wie in Gelsenkirchen. Die Stadt in Nordrhein-Westfalen bildete mit 16 203 Euro pro Kopf das Schlusslicht im Einkommens-Ranking. Das geht aus einer neuen Studie des Wirtschafts- und Sozialwissenschaftlichen Instituts der gewerkschaftlichen Hans-Böckler-Stiftung hervor.

US EU relationships with Trump - IMF warns on risks to corporate sector debt

Image/photo

The creditworthiness of corporate borrowers in advanced economies has deteriorated while the volume of debt and financial risk taking has risen, the International Monetary Fund has warned.

It also flagged up concerns about the sovereign-bank nexus in the eurozone and about market conditions for low income and frontier countries.

i would add: the problem is the banks.

They do not provide enough liquidity for the real economy (companies and company founders with ideas).

if this is not correct: where can i apply for my 0% loan payable over 30 years?

so the whole thing you call EU economy goes bust!

I think a major problem is that the US (indeed) sees itself as the successor to the British Empire and thus thinks it still has the “right” to govern it’s overseas colonies.

This relationship has to transform rapidly into a true honest and open partnership or relations will get more and more hostile.

Trump is NOT exactly the right candidate to do so, thus Putin welcomes whatever splits “The West” and “The West” is easily split… btw. “the EU” as “United States of Europe” will not work – for the simple fact – that the US is cultural much more homogeneous than Europe (most cultural diversity you can imagine) – so one size / one currency fits all is doomed to fail.

I surely can imagine that some people like the “one currency shall rule all of Europe” idea out of power greediness – but it will not work.

if IMF wants to see a strong EU economy – “the banks” need to provide liquidity for people with ideas that want to do companies, not even existing well running companies can get loans to redo their infrastructure these days – and the IMF blames it on them.

Would be the point to leverage – to make sure people actually have meaningful work and access to money (afaik “states” “the EU” can not go bust? unless the ECB wants it to?).

But then again – “the banks” are not obliged to take responsibility for society – they are only obliged to make profit – this is basically asking for self destruction and this is what we see right now.

PS: the IMF is based in Washington and thus just as the World Bank or Goldman Sachs has not exactly the will of the people in mind.

US EU relationships with Trump – IMF warns on risks to corporate sector debt
 

Sonntags | DLF: Grundgesetz Artikel 20a - Schutz der natürlichen Lebensgrundlagen und der Tiere


Artikel 20a: „Der Staat schützt auch in Verantwortung für die künftigen Generationen die natürlichen Lebensgrundlagen und die Tiere im Rahmen der verfassungsmäßigen Ordnung durch die Gesetzgebung und nach Maßgabe von Gesetz und Recht durch die vollziehende Gewalt und die Rechtsprechung.“

Stefanie Lazarus hat Artikel 20a ausgewählt. Sie bemängelt, dass Klima- und Tierschutz zu häufig den Interessen von Industrie und Wirtschaft geopfert würden.

Wie könnte ein Nachhaltiges Geldsystem aussehen?

(scroll down for english)
  • Im Idealfall profitiert der der tatsächlich Gutes denkt und tut und wer schlechtes im Sinn hat geht pleite
  • Welches dem Nachhaltigen Überleben der Menschheit auf diesem wunderschönen blauen Bowlingball dient
  • Welches dem Frieden dient
Reicht es einfach zu sagen: +3% p.a. Staatsverschuldung und fertig?

Muss man die EZB zwingen Staatsanleihen direkt vom Staat (nicht nur von privaten Banken) aufzukaufen? (Federal Bank of Canada)

Scheinbar würde die EZB eher den Staat als private Banken pleite gehen lassen.

Aufgabe des Staates muss (auch) sein:
  • alle über-lebenswichtigen Technologien am laufen zu halten/selbst zu entwickeln
    • Sicherheit
      • Man sollte nicht Privaten Firmen die Kompletten Rüstungsausgaben überweisen (es wird niemals genug sein), der Staat selbst muss seine eigenen Rüstungs-Firmen haben welche mit privaten Konkurrieren können-wollen.
      • Keine Private-Sicherheit und Privat-Armeen wie in USA
    • Energie: Green New Deal für ganz Europa?
    • Bildung
      • Warum wird gerade hier gespart das es raucht und kein Beispiel an Skandinavischen Ländern genommen? Wirklich SKANDALÖS.

What could a sustainable monetary system look like?


Ideally, the one who actually thinks and does good profits and the one that thinks and does bad will have to pay.
  • that ensures sustainable survival of humanity on this beautiful blue bowling ball
  • serves peace not wa
is it easy to say: no more than +3% p. a. public debt and thats it?

Do you have to force the central Bank to buy government bonds directly from the government (not just from private banks)? (Federal Bank of Canada)apparently, the ECB would let the state go bankrupt rather than private banks.

The task of the state must be (also): all over-to keep vital technologies running/to develop themselves
  • Security: the state should not transfer private firms the complete arms expenditure (it will never be enough), the state itself must have its own arms firms which can compete with private-want.
  • No Private security and private armies as in US
  • Energy: Green new Deal for the whole of Europe?
  • Education is being saved right here that it smokes and no example taken of Scandinavian countries? Really SCANDALOUS.
  • Healthcare: We are still the country of the blessed here, but it is diligently further privatised and monopolized, soon Goldman Sachs buys all hospitals in Germany.
    • Cuba is much cheaper because preventative verkanada is better than USA (less privatization)
  • communication: in the event of power failure, at least the House’s own fixed telephone should still work, which was also the case (mains supply) but was “rationalized”.
  • Financial services is a major part of the digital infrastructure, too, electronically?
  • Debt? Why are the psychological effects of debt “important”at all? (Psychologically?)What would a world look like in debt is no longer the Problem?
  • WTF!?: German politicians have to worry about the Italian, or the Greek national budget, the “United States of Europe” – the EU and the Euro is not Europe, but a construct without it Europe was able to survive before it, a variety of currencies is better than a mono-culture. (Bernard Lietaer would be of the same opinion)
  • transport: roads, rails, electric charging infrastructure! nationwide uniform charging infrastructure!
  • Mercedes has a hydrogen car on the market, but the infrastructure is missing.
  • Innovation and research: Cuba has developed a “vaccine” against lung cancer-which at least slows growth or prevents new generation – it’s funny that the democratically-minded Western capitalism societies can’t do that.
  • It must again be attractive and” interesting ” to want to become self-employed with his own idea.
  • In this case, a Kickstarter-like Funding Platform for good ideas would have to be created, where the state also participates?
  • Competition is good, but having only competition is not good” (Bernhard Lietaer, 2015)

Schwarze Null - StaatsHaushalt vs PrivatHaushalt

https://youtu.be/Y7A0NlPJBrA?t=90

https://youtu.be/Y7A0NlPJBrA?t=90

Man kann/sollte einen StaatsHaushalt nicht mit einem PrivatHaushalt vergleichen s.h. dazu :



https://altcoopsys.org/2019/03/19/2017-video-interview-prof-dr-dirk-h-ehnts-about-the-future-of-the-euro-france-macron-money-out-of-nowhere-and-solutions-to-the-crisis-capitalism-and-democracy-in-conflict-what-to-do-against-th/

Wenn ich ein Staat wäre würde ich jedes Jahr +3% Schulden machen und in:
  • INFRASTRUKTUR
  • Bildungssystem
  • GesundheitsSystem
  • Polizei / Militär
  • Forschung und Entwicklung (des Staates und des Modi Operandi wie Menschen überhaupt auf diesem Planeten nachhaltig überleben können)
… investieren.

Gleichzeitig könnte man Staatsanleihen drucken und die EZB zwingen diese zu kaufen (wie das in Kanada der Fall ist).

(aktuell kauft diese Staatsanleihen, aber NUR über private Banken sogenannter “Sekundärmarkt”)

D.h. die EZB tut alles um die privaten Banken nicht Insolvent/pleite gehen zu lassen – was ist mit dem Staat?

Weil: In diesem globalisierten Monopoly-Spiel genannte Kapitalismus muss scheinbar immer irgendeiner sich verschulden, weil sonst das Spiel aufhört.

Klingt komisch scheint aber so zu sein.

Kann das bitte jemand mal einer Berlin erklären, bevor die Lücke zwischen Regierungs-Lobby-Blase und Realität noch größer wird?

Danke!

Canada debt:


pretty bad just as in any other nation – what to do? cut debt?

https://www.fraserinstitute.org/blogs/a-really-quick-history-of-canada-s-federal-debt

Foreign ownership


In 1960, 4% of the Canadian government debt was held by foreign investors.[7]

From 2009-2010 to 2013-2014, the amount of the Canadian’s debt held by foreign investors passed from 15% to 27% with a peak at 30% in 2012-2013. Even if growing, this level is still lower than or comparable to most G7 countries in 2013-2014

saving the world from structural tyranny

there is a term called “structural violence”.

it’s a sophisticated setup of systems and methods that are not obvious on the first sight – hence injustice can be done everyday – but nobody realizes it as injustice.

It’s what i would call structural tyranny.

Fun fact: people actually “feel” that the modi operandi of mankind for survival is highly unsustainable.

Homo sapiens is depressed and women refuse to get children in such an insecure world.

Thus the dying-out process is already going on in the developed countries, while the underdeveloped countries make babies just out of trauma and frustration (they are so poor, they don’t know if they will survive another week so they have unprotected sex at any possibility and reckless irresponsible impossibility).

My Millennial generation inherits a pile of nuclear waste – called the Earth – and all my generation can do is dampen the fall to hell.

Previous generations say – they did not know they set course to hell – because back in the 1970s there was no internet – so how should they have known?

Well fun fact – there have been forward thinking people in the 1970s like the New Alchemists – but instead of distributing their scientific results – “the system” (namely the mainstream media and politics) chose to label them “nuts” and “hippies” and ignore them – and they still do – so you tell me ignorance is bliss? Maybe yes – until you reach hell.

Maybe we should stop wining and do something.

Phytoremediation Plant CleanUp process – the question is: while mankind is still alive or after?
Despite having invented numerous layers of “abstraction” (money being the most prominent) Humans are part of nature.

As the life of millions of native Southamericans – that used to life in the Amazonas jungle show:


They increased thickness of the fertile soil layer significantly – from 5cm to 100cm – just by ecological living near by – until the Spanish colonists arrived and killed them all. Poor bastards.

The presence of humans with proper lifestyles is actually beneficial to plants and biodiversity.

Yes we can not save the world – but we can slow down the fall to hell – we can try – step by step – day by day.

Kritik an Rüstungslieferungsvereinbarung mit Saudi-Arabien

Danach genehmigt Berlin Lieferungen von Rüstungsgütern an die Jemen-Kriegsparteien. Dabei geht es unter anderem um „Technologie für Satteltiefladerfertigung“, die der Ulmer Transportwagenhersteller Kamag nach Frankreich liefert. Die fertigen Tieflader, die etwa zum Transport von Panzern eingesetzt werden können, sollen schließlich nach Saudi-Arabien ausgeführt werden. Die Emirate sollen Artillerie-Ortungsradarsysteme sowie neue Software für die Systeme aus deutsch-französischer Produktion erhalten sowie Ersatzteile für Rüstungsgerät. Darüber hinaus wurden Waffenlieferungen an Algerien, Katar, Indonesien und Singapur genehmigt, heißt es in einer Liste des Wirtschaftsministeriums, die unserer Berliner Redaktion vorliegt.
Wann wird eigentlich befugt, dass die Ethikkommission solche Vereinbarungen verpflichtend unterzeichnen muss, damit sowas auch in Kraft treten kann? Auf diese Weise ließen sich solche kriegstreiberischen Machenschaften ebenfalls unterbinden, nur eben auf Umwegen, aber immerhin: Es funktioniere auch. Unser Wirtschaftsminister kennt ja scheinbar keine Skrupel, wenn es darum geht, den Völkermord im Jemen weiter mit deutscher Unterstützung zu befeuern. Auf deutschem Boden darf sowas ja seit 1945 nicht mehr stattfinden, auch nicht in deutschen Nachbarstaaten.
„Ich hätte schon erwartet, dass zumindest die SPD-Minister den Koalitionsvertrag ernst nehmen und der Lieferung von Rüstungsgütern in Krisengebiete nicht zustimmen“, erklärte SPD-Wirtschaftsexperte Florian Post im Gespräch mit unserer Berliner Redaktion. Kritik kommt auch von Grünen und Linken. Ein verbindliches Rüstungsexportkontrollgesetz sei längst überfällig.

Sarkozy double game - Gaddafis removal triggered refugee crisis of 2015 - 2019 another General brings war back to Libya - Rockefeller in Libya




French Ex President Sarkozy accepted about 50 Mio USD from Libya’s (killed 2011 by rebel groups) dictator Gaddafi as “friendship gift” which he spend in the 2007 election campaign to win presidency by 53.1%.

Of course General Gaddafi ruled Libya with a iron fist and now another General tries to take power and brought war back to Libya.

Oil major TOTAL expands in Libya, buys U.S. Marathon‘s Waha stake for $450 million


Ahmad Ghaddar, Aidan Lewis

“LONDON/TUNIS (Reuters) – French energy company Total (TOTF.PA) substantially raised its presence in Libya with the purchase of a 16.33% stake in Libya’s Waha concessions from U.S. Marathon Oil (MRO.N) for $450 million on Friday.

Total has been in Libya for decades and holds a production share of 31,500 boe/d in 2017 from concessions in the offshore Al Jurf field and the onshore Sharara field. It also has a share in Mabruk field, which has been closed for several years because of poor security.” (src: Reuters)

Marathon began as The Ohio Oil Company in 1887. In 1889, it was purchased by John D. Rockefeller‘s Standard Oil.(src: Wikipedia)

The sideffects of this greedy tactic: the refugee crisis of 2015

which swept accross europe and the resulting boost for right-wing parties accross europe. (Poland is strictly Catholic, while massively profiting from EU investments, did not accept ANY refugees)


While Sarkozy is himself a centre-right politician – so i guess it is the old game: greedy eats brains.

Macron will probably be the last elected president of France, Le Pen will kill democracy in France – Sarkozy and TOTAL are to blame.

Just look at this horrible video from calais and you know why – 30.000 migrants try to cross over from France to UK, but are stuck in France for years.

United Nations Security Council Resolution 1973, on the situation in Libya, is a measure that was adopted on 17 March 2011. The Security Council resolution was proposed by France, Lebanon, and the United Kingdom.[1][2]

Hillary Clinton argued that, though arming anti-Gaddafi forces was not being proposed at the time, it would be legal to do so.[5]

HERE YOU CAN SEE AGAIN: NATO IS A PROBLEM – NOT A SOLUTION!


Canada, want some refugees?




Military intervention in Libya began on 19 March, as fighter jets of the French Air Force destroyed several pro-Gaddafi vehicles advancing on rebel stronghold Benghazi. U.S. and British submarines then fired over 110 Tomahawk cruise missiles at targets throughout Libya, severely disabling the regime’s air defense capability and allowing a wider enforcement of the no-fly zone to begin. A coalition of 10 states from Europe and the Middle East initially participated in the intervention, later expanding to 17. On 31 March, NATO assumed command of the operation. The intervention succeeded in preventing pro-Gaddafi forces from capturing Benghazi.[16]

On 24 August, it was acknowledged for the first time that special forces troops from Britain,[17] Italy, France, Jordan, Qatar,[18] and the UAE[18] had intervened on the ground in Libyan territory, stepping up operations in Tripoli and other cities.[19] This has been questioned as a possible violation of Resolution 1973[20] although the use of special forces is not prohibited by the resolution.

Noam Chomsky has argued that the Western military intervention into Libya was a clear breach of UNSCR 1973 since it nullified the attempts for a ceasefire that were put forward by the resolution and welcomed by Gaddafi. As he puts it, “NATO powers (France and Britain in the lead and the United States following) violated the resolution, radically, and became the air force of the rebels. Nothing in the resolution justified that. It did call for “all necessary steps” to protect civilians, but there’s a big difference between protecting civilians and being the air force for the rebels.” [21]

Julian Assange was arrested


Here you can see how much a vote counts, because people in Ecuador have voted for a more pro US president – and that is the result.

Julian Assange 47, has been living at the Ecuadorean Embassy in London since 2012

“In march 2012, in the capital of Belize, the brother of the President of Ecuador, Lenin Moreno, Edwin Moreno Garcés was a phantom company, commonly referred to as offshore under the name INA INVESTMENT CORP.

His name is not an acronym or anything like that but the acronym of the last three letters of the three daughters that the president of Ecuador Lenin Moreno Garcés had with his wife Rocío González Navas:

IrINA, CarINA and CristINA

The phantom company of which the Chairman says have nothing to do, but takes implicit the name of their three daughters was in the first instance created with the purpose of receiving monies through the “entrepreneur,” and at the same time their front man Xavier Macias Carmignani is levied, the product of kickbacks to certain companies such as china’s SINOHYDRO and the panamanian RECORSA, paid for the lobbying carried out in the awards of certain concessions granted by the state.

In one of those movements, no more or less than $ 18 million was paid.



What are the INA PAPERS?


The INA PAPERS are an important series of documents that confirm the existence of a criminal organization led by the president of Ecuador Lenin Moreno Garcés and that having as its members his wife, First Lady Rocío González, his close friend, businessman and front man Xavier Macías Carmignani, his wife María Herdoiza Patiño, the sister-in-law of President Guisella González, the brother of the president, Edwin Moreno Garcés and the former ambassador of Panama to Mexico, Ricardo Alemán Alfaro along with half a dozen lawyers and secondary characters, by means of at least a dozen societies ghosts (offshore) incorporated in various tax havens have committed a series of crimes that include money laundering, tax evasion and tax compliance, the traffic of influences and the collection of coimas (bribery) to the detriment of the Ecuadorian state, the scope of which, given that illicit acts have been committed in different countries, has resulted in what, according to INTERPOL standards in the area of money laundering, categorizes as a transnational crime.
Ghost companies, crimes and lavish lives.

UN:


UN experts urge UK to honour rights obligations and let Mr. Julian Assange leave Ecuador embassy in London freely

GENEVA (21 December 2018) – UN human rights experts today repeated a demand that the UK abides by its international obligations and immediately allows Wikileaks founder Julian Assange to walk free from the Ecuadorian embassy in London where he has been for over 6 years, fearing arrest by British authorities if he leaves, and extradition to the US.

“States that are based upon and promote the rule of law do not like to be confronted with their own violations of the law, that is understandable. But when they honestly admit these violations, they do honour the very spirit of the rule of law, earn enhanced respect for doing so, and set worldwide commendable examples,” the United Nations Working Group on Arbitrary Detention (WGAD) said.

In December 2015, the Working Group concluded in its opinion No. 54/2015 that Mr. Assange – who at the time had a European arrest warrant issued against him for an allegation of crimes committed in Sweden ‑ was being arbitrarily deprived of his freedom and demanded that he be released.

“Under international law, pre-trial detention must be only imposed in limited instances. Detention during investigations must be even more limited, especially in the absence of any charge” said the experts. “The Swedish investigations have been closed for over 18 months now, and the only ground remaining for Mr. Assange’s continued deprivation of liberty is a bail violation in the UK, which is, objectively, a minor offense that cannot post facto justify the more than 6 years confinement that he has been subjected to since he sought asylum in the Embassy of Ecuador. Mr. Assange should be able to exercise his right to freedom of movement in an unhindered manner, in accordance with the human rights conventions the UK has ratified,” the experts further said

The WGAD is further concerned that the modalities of the continued arbitrary deprivation of liberty of Mr. Assange is undermining his health, and may possible endanger his life given the disproportionate amount of anxiety and stress that such prolonged deprivation of liberty entails.

“The United Kingdom has ratified the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights (ICCPR) and has a responsibility to honour its commitment, by respecting its provisions in all cases,” the experts said.

“As the High Commissioner for human rights said several years ago, human rights treaty law is binding law, it is not discretionary law. It is not some passing fancy that a state can apply sometimes and not in the other,” the experts recalled.

“In addition, the recommendations of the WGAD Opinions are expected to be implemented by all States, including those which have not been a party in the case concerning Mr. Assange,” said the experts.

“On 10 December, the world celebrated International Human Rights Day. Seventy years ago, on that very day, the United Nations proclaimed the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the mother of all rights contained in subsequent conventions, including the ICCPR.

“It is time that Mr. Assange, who has already paid a high price for peacefully exercising his rights to freedom of opinion, expression and information, and to promote the right to truth in the public interest, recovers his freedom,” the experts concluded.

This statement by the United Nations Working Group on Arbitrary Detention is endorsed by the United Nations Special Rapporteur on the situation of human rights defenders, Mr. Michel Forst.

ENDS

Background: Mr. Assange, a computer programmer and freedom of expression and information advocate, is the founder of Wikileaks, created to enable whistle-blowers to make public information they deem should be known in the public interest.

Mr. Assange was arrested on 7 December 2010 in the United Kingdom, pursuant to a European Arrest Warrant issued against him after he was accused of sexual misconduct in Sweden. That accusation has not been substantiated and after he was interrogated in London the Swedish Prosecutor decided in 2017 not to pursue the investigation.

Mr. Assange has been de facto arbitrarily deprived of his liberty since 2012 without charge or trial. He was first detained on remand and in isolation for 10 days in a prison in London; he then spent 550 days on bail terms constituting house arrest, pending his appeal before the UK’s Supreme Court against his extradition to Sweden. When the Supreme Court upheld the extradition decision, he sought political asylum in the Embassy of Ecuador on 16 August 2012, citing fears of being extradited from Sweden to the USA. He claimed that he had reasonable grounds to believe that should he be extradited to the USA, he would face trial for having published, through Wikileaks, thousands of US classified diplomatic cables and documents. Ecuador granted him political asylum and later Ecuadorian citizenship.

The United Kingdom has indicated that Mr. Assange’s fear to be extradited to the USA was unfounded. In April 2017, in his first public speech since becoming head of the CIA, Mr. Michael Pompeo described Wikileaks as a “hostile intelligence service” which claimed to act in the name of the defence of freedom of expression, freedom of information and privacy. The same month, the US Attorney General stated that it was a US priority to arrest and detain Julian Assange. On 15 November 2018, evidence emerged that the US Department of Justice was preparing an indictment against him but the charges have remained classified.

As a result of the Swedish Prosecutor’s decision not to pursue the investigation against Mr. Assange, the European Arrest Warrant against him was nullified. The remaining ground for arresting him is his violation of the terms of the bail in 2012, when he walked to the embassy of Ecuador to seek political asylum. The terms of bail included reporting daily to the local police station.

The UK authorities have made it clear that should he leave the Ecuadorian Embassy he would be arrested. An arrest warrant has been issued against Mr. Assange by a British court, and police have been assigned since 2012 to stand-by 24/7 at the embassy gate to arrest Mr. Assange should he exit the diplomatic premises.

In December 2015, the Working Group concluded in its opinion No. 54/2015 that Mr. Assange – who at the time had a European arrest warrant issued against him for an allegation of crimes committed in Sweden ‑ was being arbitrarily deprived of his freedom and demanded that he be released.

“Under international law, pre-trial detention must be only imposed in limited instances. Detention during investigations must be even more limited, especially in the absence of any charge” said the experts. “The Swedish investigations have been closed for over 18 months now, and the only ground remaining for Mr. Assange’s continued deprivation of liberty is a bail violation in the UK, which is, objectively, a minor offense that cannot post facto justify the more than 6 years confinement that he has been subjected to since he sought asylum in the Embassy of Ecuador. Mr. Assange should be able to exercise his right to freedom of movement in an unhindered manner, in accordance with the human rights conventions the UK has ratified,” the experts further said

The WGAD is further concerned that the modalities of the continued arbitrary deprivation of liberty of Mr. Assange is undermining his health, and may possible endanger his life given the disproportionate amount of anxiety and stress that such prolonged deprivation of liberty entails.

“The United Kingdom has ratified the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights (ICCPR) and has a responsibility to honour its commitment, by respecting its provisions in all cases,” the experts said.

“As the High Commissioner for human rights said several years ago, human rights treaty law is binding law, it is not discretionary law. It is not some passing fancy that a state can apply sometimes and not in the other,” the experts recalled.

“In addition, the recommendations of the WGAD Opinions are expected to be implemented by all States, including those which have not been a party in the case concerning Mr. Assange,” said the experts.

“On 10 December, the world celebrated International Human Rights Day. Seventy years ago, on that very day, the United Nations proclaimed the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the mother of all rights contained in subsequent conventions, including the ICCPR.

“It is time that Mr. Assange, who has already paid a high price for peacefully exercising his rights to freedom of opinion, expression and information, and to promote the right to truth in the public interest, recovers his freedom,” the experts concluded.

This statement by the United Nations Working Group on Arbitrary Detention is endorsed by the United Nations Special Rapporteur on the situation of human rights defenders, Mr. Michel Forst.

ENDS

Background: Mr. Assange, a computer programmer and freedom of expression and information advocate, is the founder of Wikileaks, created to enable whistle-blowers to make public information they deem should be known in the public interest.

Mr. Assange was arrested on 7 December 2010 in the United Kingdom, pursuant to a European Arrest Warrant issued against him after he was accused of sexual misconduct in Sweden. That accusation has not been substantiated and after he was interrogated in London the Swedish Prosecutor decided in 2017 not to pursue the investigation.

Mr. Assange has been de facto arbitrarily deprived of his liberty since 2012 without charge or trial. He was first detained on remand and in isolation for 10 days in a prison in London; he then spent 550 days on bail terms constituting house arrest, pending his appeal before the UK’s Supreme Court against his extradition to Sweden. When the Supreme Court upheld the extradition decision, he sought political asylum in the Embassy of Ecuador on 16 August 2012, citing fears of being extradited from Sweden to the USA. He claimed that he had reasonable grounds to believe that should he be extradited to the USA, he would face trial for having published, through Wikileaks, thousands of US classified diplomatic cables and documents. Ecuador granted him political asylum and later Ecuadorian citizenship.

The United Kingdom has indicated that Mr. Assange’s fear to be extradited to the USA was unfounded. In April 2017, in his first public speech since becoming head of the CIA, Mr. Michael Pompeo described Wikileaks as a “hostile intelligence service” which claimed to act in the name of the defence of freedom of expression, freedom of information and privacy. The same month, the US Attorney General stated that it was a US priority to arrest and detain Julian Assange. On 15 November 2018, evidence emerged that the US Department of Justice was preparing an indictment against him but the charges have remained classified.

As a result of the Swedish Prosecutor’s decision not to pursue the investigation against Mr. Assange, the European Arrest Warrant against him was nullified. The remaining ground for arresting him is his violation of the terms of the bail in 2012, when he walked to the embassy of Ecuador to seek political asylum. The terms of bail included reporting daily to the local police station.

The UK authorities have made it clear that should he leave the Ecuadorian Embassy he would be arrested. An arrest warrant has been issued against Mr. Assange by a British court, and police have been assigned since 2012 to stand-by 24/7 at the embassy gate to arrest Mr. Assange should he exit the diplomatic premises.

Julian Assange was arrested


Here you can see how much a vote counts, because people in Ecuador have voted for a more pro US president – and that is the result.

Julian Assange 47, has been living at the Ecuadorean Embassy in London since 2012

“In march 2012, in the capital of Belize, the brother of the President of Ecuador, Lenin Moreno, Edwin Moreno Garcés was a phantom company, commonly referred to as offshore under the name INA INVESTMENT CORP.

His name is not an acronym or anything like that but the acronym of the last three letters of the three daughters that the president of Ecuador Lenin Moreno Garcés had with his wife Rocío González Navas:

IrINA, CarINA and CristINA

The phantom company of which the Chairman says have nothing to do, but takes implicit the name of their three daughters was in the first instance created with the purpose of receiving monies through the “entrepreneur,” and at the same time their front man Xavier Macias Carmignani is levied, the product of kickbacks to certain companies such as china’s SINOHYDRO and the panamanian RECORSA, paid for the lobbying carried out in the awards of certain concessions granted by the state.

In one of those movements, no more or less than $ 18 million was paid.



What are the INA PAPERS?


The INA PAPERS are an important series of documents that confirm the existence of a criminal organization led by the president of Ecuador Lenin Moreno Garcés and that having as its members his wife, First Lady Rocío González, his close friend, businessman and front man Xavier Macías Carmignani, his wife María Herdoiza Patiño, the sister-in-law of President Guisella González, the brother of the president, Edwin Moreno Garcés and the former ambassador of Panama to Mexico, Ricardo Alemán Alfaro along with half a dozen lawyers and secondary characters, by means of at least a dozen societies ghosts (offshore) incorporated in various tax havens have committed a series of crimes that include money laundering, tax evasion and tax compliance, the traffic of influences and the collection of coimas (bribery) to the detriment of the Ecuadorian state, the scope of which, given that illicit acts have been committed in different countries, has resulted in what, according to INTERPOL standards in the area of money laundering, categorizes as a transnational crime.
Ghost companies, crimes and lavish lives.

Names pompous as the HOLY SPIRIT HOLDINGS, FOUNDATION AMORE, FOUNDATION ESMALAU, FUNDACIÓN PACHA MAMA, INVESTMENTS LARENA, INVESTMENTS MASPAL, MANELA INVESTMENT CORP., PROBATA INVESTMENTS, SAN ANTONIO BUSINESS CORP, TURQUOISE HOLDINGS LTD, VALLEY VIEW BUSINESS CORP along with the infamous INA INVESTMENT CORP are some of the companies fantasy that this criminal organization used for decades for in addition to committing all of the crimes previously referred to, have been used as a bridge to the acquisition of goods lavish vehicles such as Ferrari brand, Wallets of crocodile, jewelry, the payment of eccentric trips around the world and even the acquisition below the level of real estate of apartments in luxury condominiums in Spain.

In this site we propose to the reader either a simple occasional person or an investigative journalist, see and record firsthand the evidence that opens the doors of presidential corruption in the Republic of Ecuador.

UN experts urge UK to honour rights obligations and let Mr. Julian Assange leave Ecuador embassy in London freely

GENEVA (21 December 2018) – UN human rights experts today repeated a demand that the UK abides by its international obligations and immediately allows Wikileaks founder Julian Assange to walk free from the Ecuadorian embassy in London where he has been for over 6 years, fearing arrest by British authorities if he leaves, and extradition to the US.

“States that are based upon and promote the rule of law do not like to be confronted with their own violations of the law, that is understandable. But when they honestly admit these violations, they do honour the very spirit of the rule of law, earn enhanced respect for doing so, and set worldwide commendable examples,” the United Nations Working Group on Arbitrary Detention (WGAD) said.

News | Tagesschau: Trotz Klimaverträgen - Weltbank investiert massiv in fossile Energien


Trotz internationaler Klimaverträge investiert die Weltbank weiter massiv in fossile Energieträger. Laut NDR, Deutscher Welle und "Süddeutscher Zeitung" unterstützt die UN-Organisation zahlreiche Projekte in dem Bereich.

Es staubt, die Luft ist heiß. Die Arbeiter schwitzen. Hunderte von Lkw liefern täglich neue Baumaterialien an und transportieren den Schutt weg. Auf der Baustelle außerhalb von Lagos in Nigeria treffen zwei Superlative zusammen: Der wohl reichste Mann Afrikas, der nigerianischen Unternehmer Aliko Dangote, baut hier die größte Ölraffinerie der Welt. Im kommenden Jahr soll sie fertig sein...

Meine Meinung: Da sieht man mal wieder wie ernst es die UN mit dem Klimaschutz nimmt! Sie ist eben auch nur eine Marionette der großen Staaten und ihrer kapitalistisch gesteuerten Interessen!

PS. Ein Danke an @BeatclubFC für die Info zu dem Artikel. Wäre mir glatt entgangen.

how is it? - with state and private investments in EU? - Mediocre physical infrastructure in many EU countries, incl. Germany

Mediocre physical infrastructure in many EU countries, incl. Germany


Even rich EU countries such as Germany and Luxembourg had for many years deliberately delayed or reduced infrastructure investments in order to limit public spending. [3] There is thus an EU-wide need for better transport links, power grid connections, super-fast broadband networks, as well as school and hospital improvements [4]

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/European_Commission_Investment_Plan_for_Europe

Germany needs to give up on it’s “zero debt” policy – ECB will have to buy state bonds – like bank of Canada.

Anything else will lead to economy standing still, unemployment and chaos.

Germany is a Paradise for money laundering - Green Plan for good and affordable Housing in Europe - Deutschland Paradies für Geldwäsche - Grüner Plan für gutes und bezahlbares Wohnen in Europa



Green Party 4 point plan for affordable housing


(scroll down for Deutsch)
  • housing as a focal point of EU funding: multi-annual financial framework re-orienting the billions of European funding have so far been scarce in social housing.
    • The funds of the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) may only be used for the construction of housing in the event of energy recovery. Use for social housing has so far been limited to marginalised groups, especially Roma (!WTF!?). EU support for housing for Roma is right, so that people in their home have a home and do not have to flee from bitter poverty to the pedestrian zones of other countries. For the next EU budget framework 2021-2027, however, we want to make public housing for all people with low incomes a priority for European funding. At the green Initiative, the aim of social housing is already in the decision on the ERDF, which the European Parliament voted on last week. Investment in housing is to be promoted with EU money when Real Estate is owned by public or not-for-profit and reserved for low-income households or people with disabilities. The European Social Fund (ESF) should also provide targeted funding to support access to suitable housing. The negotiations between parliament and the Council of the member states are only taking place after the European elections. Every vote for Green is a vote for more EU money for social housing.
  • detoxifying the real estate market: money
    laundering, letter-box companies and speculation ending rents are rising for a number of reasons.The inflow of black money also aggravates the tense situation on the real estate markets.Germany has the reputation of being a money laundering machine for the Italian Mafia and Russian oligarchs.And this, although we greens in Europe have been able to enforce hard rules against money laundering.Many actors are required by EU law to alert when money laundering is suspected.What makes Germany attractive for money laundering, the deliberate Non-application of European Law.Because anonymity is not a Problem when buying real estate worth millions so far, Schwarzgeld feels so comfortable in Germany’s cities.The number of suspected reports on money laundering by notaries, lawyers and real estate agents is close to the detection limit, although they are obliged to spontaneous reports under the Money Laundering Act.More active supervision of public authorities is needed, so that the current law is finally implemented.All federal states have to fulfil their task of preventing money laundering with regard to Real Estate in particular.In addition, the federal government must at last provide the Financial Intelligence Unit (currently at customs) with personnel, technical and police data in such a way that it can fulfil its tasks effectively.”Property required. Its use should at the same time serve the benefit of the general public,“ says the Basic Law.However, the social obligation is difficult to enforce when owners hide behind a letter box company.Tenants have a right to know their owners.Finally, it often makes a big difference whether an urgent repair happens quickly, or by an anonymous property management company on the long bench pushed.To make letter box companies transparent, has the EU imposed a Transparency Register of beneficial owners on the basis of much green pressure.But the grand coalition in Berlin denies proper implementation.The transparency register on economically entitled persons must at last actually provide information about the true owners of all companies in Germany, as provided for by European law.The German special rule that box structures are allowed to remain anonymous, contradicts European law.Therefore, the German implementation of the 4. Anti-money laundering policy.Because the Berlin grand coalition has so far ignored all calls, we Greens have filed an infringement complaint with the European Commission in the European Parliament.
  • a European legal framework for social and good housing to co-ordinate national policies wherever important policy is above all national competence, the EU can nevertheless co-ordinate with a legal framework.We want such a European legal framework for social and good housing.Social housing must be a European priority.The enforcement of EU state aid rules must not lead to the disadvantage of social housing compared to profit-oriented real estate companies or to the creation of “Ghettos” more socially disadvantaged. We want to promote diverse neighborhoods. The EU Commission can enforce the European legal framework of the open method of coordination. The European Commission can make specific recommendations for social housing to national governments within the framework of the European semester, where this is particularly necessary.
  • The Paris climate agreement is a great success of European diplomacy to prevent climate collapse. In order to achieve the goal of limiting global warming to below 1.5 percent, all countries must comply with their obligations. By December 2019, the federal government must report to the EU Commission its binding national action plan on climate and energy. For the action plan, we call for a comprehensive Definition of energy poverty, quantified objectives and effective measures to reduce it. In order to achieve these goals, the federal government must present an ambitious long-term renovation strategy. The Federal government should develop the strategy, with the involvement of representatives of the anti – poverty and women’s associations and social housing representatives. The renovation strategy must focus on funding for the renovation of buildings where low-income people live. The rate of renovation must be set at least three percent. In order to reach them, appropriate measures are needed in the field of advice, financing, urban and spatial planning.

German:





Grüner Plan für gutes und bezahlbares Wohnen in Europa

Wohnen ist die soziale Frage unserer Zeit. In Deutschland geben 16 Prozent der Menschen mehr als 40 Prozent ihres Einkommens fürs Wohnen aus. Das ist in der EU die zweitschlimmste Belastung nach Griechenland. Der reine #Mietenwahnsinn! In Rumänien leben 50 Prozent der Menschen in überbelegten Wohnungen. 95 Prozent der Griech*innen mit niedrigem Einkommen erleben eine Explosion ihrer Wohnkosten (Quelle: FEANTSA). Dass sich Menschen ein zentrales Grundbedürfnis wie Wohnen nicht leisten können, ist ein bedroht das Grundrecht auf Wohnen. Erst recht in unserem reichen Land. Die Verdrängung von Menschen aus den Städten ist eine Gefahr für den Zusammenhalt unserer Gesellschaft.

Die Verdrängung ist aber nicht nur für die Betroffenen, sondern auch für die Wirtschaft ein Problem. Gutes Personal ist ein wichtiger Standortfaktor. Wenn die Wohnungssuche zum unüberwindlichen Hindernis wird, wird es für Firmen noch schwieriger Mitarbeiter zu finden. Gutes und bezahlbares Wohnen gehört zur notwendigen Infrastruktur für wirtschaftliche Stärke. Gerade in den Städten und Regionen mit gutem Entwicklungspotential wird der Mietenwahnsinn zum Wirtschaftshemmnis.

Wohnen ist keine europäische Kern-Zuständigkeit. Die meisten Hebel sind in der Hand der nationaler, regionaler und kommunaler Politik. Das wollen wir auch nicht ändern, denn Boden und Immobilien sind immobil und die Verhältnisse von Ort zu Ort sehr unterschiedlich. Aber auch Europa muss aber im Rahmen seiner Zuständigkeiten zu Lösungen für diese wichtige Herausforderung beitragen. Dieser Plan fasst zusammen, was wir in der Europäischen Union tun können.

der Grüne 4 Punkte Plan


1 | Wohnen als Schwerpunkt der EU-Fördermittel: Mehrjährigen Finanzrahmen neu ausrichten

Die Milliarden der europäischen Fördermittel fließen bisher kaum in sozialen Wohnraum. Die Mittel des Europäischen Fonds für regionale Entwicklung (EFRE) dürfen für Wohnungsbau nur bei energetischer Sanierung eingesetzt werden. Die Verwendung für sozialen Wohnungsbau ist bisher beschränkt auf marginalisierte Gruppen, insbesondere Roma. Die EU-Förderung für Wohnungen für Roma ist richtig, damit Menschen in ihrer Heimat ein Zuhause haben und nicht vor bitterer Armut in die Fußgängerzonen anderer Länder flüchten müssen. Für den nächsten EU-Haushaltsrahmen 2021-2027 wollen wir gemeinwohlorientiertes Wohnen für alle Menschen mit niedrigem Einkommen aber zum Schwerpunkt für europäische Fördermittel machen. Auf Grüne Initiative hin, steht das Ziel des sozialen Wohnungsbaus bereits im Beschluss zum EFRE, den das Europaparlaments letzter Woche abgestimmt hat. Investitionen in Wohnungsbau sollen mit EU-Geld gefördert werden, wenn Immobilien im öffentlichen oder im gemeinnützigen Besitz sind und für Haushalte mit niedrigem Einkommen oder Menschen mit Behinderungen reserviert. Auch aus dem Europäischen Sozialfond (ESF) sollen gezielt Gelder zur Verfügung stehen zur Förderung von Zugang zu geeignetem Wohnraum. Die Verhandlungen zwischen Parlament und Rat der Mitgliedstaaten gehen erst nach der Europawahl richtig los. Jede Stimme für Grün ist eine Stimme für mehr EU-Geld für sozialen Wohnungsbau.

2 | Immobilienmarkt entgiften: Geldwäsche, Briefkastenfirmen und Spekulation beenden


Mieten steigen aus mehreren Gründen.

Auch der Zufluss von Schwarzgeld verschlimmert die angespannte Lage auf den Immobilienmärkten.

Ausgerechnet Deutschland hat den Ruf, Geldwaschmaschine für die italienische Mafia und russische Oligarchen zu sein.

Und das obwohl wir Grünen in Europa harte Regeln gegen Geldwäsche mit durchsetzen konnten.

Viele Akteure sind per EU-Gesetz verpflichtet, beim Verdacht auf Geldwäsche Alarm zu schlagen.

Was Deutschland für Geldwäsche attraktiv macht, ist die bewusste Nicht-Anwendung europäischen Rechts.

Weil Anonymität beim Kauf millionenschwerer Immobilien bisher kein Problem ist, fühlt sich Schwarzgeld in Deutschlands Städten so wohl.

Die Zahl der Verdachtsmeldungen auf Geldwäsche von Notaren, Rechtsanwälten und Immobilienmaklern bewegen sich nahe der Nachweisgrenze, obwohl sie zu spontanen Meldungen nach dem Geldwäschegesetz verpflichtet sind.

Es braucht eine aktivere Aufsicht staatlicher Stellen, damit das geltende Recht endlich auch vollzogen wird.

Alle Bundesländer müssen ihrer Aufgabe zur Prävention von Geldwäsche gerade mit Bezug auf Immobilien besser nachkommen.

Außerdem muss die Bundesregierung die Financial Intelligence Unit (derzeit beim Zoll) endlich personell, technisch und bei den Zugängen zu polizeilichen Daten so ausstatten, dass sie ihre Aufgaben auch wirksam erfüllen kann.

„Eigentum verpflichtet. Sein Gebrauch soll zugleich dem Wohle der Allgemeinheit dienen,“ sagt das Grundgesetz.

Die Sozialpflicht ist aber schwer durchzusetzen, wenn sich Eigentümer hinter einer Briefkastenfirmen verstecken.

Mieter haben ein Recht, ihren Eigentümer zu kennen.

Schließlich macht es oft einen großen Unterschied, ob eine eilige Reparatur schnell passiert oder von einer anonymen Hausverwaltungsfirma auf die lange Bank geschoben wird.

Um Briefkastenfirmen transparent zu machen, hat die EU auf viel grünen Druck hin ein Transparenzregister der wirtschaftlich Berechtigten vorgeschrieben.

Doch die große Koalition in Berlin verweigert die ordentliche Umsetzung.

Das Transparenzregister über wirtschaftlich Berechtigte muss endlich tatsächlich Auskunft über die wahren Eigentümer von allen Firmen in Deutschland geben, wie es das Europarecht vorsieht.

Die deutsche Sonderregelung, dass Schachtelkonstruktionen anonym bleiben dürfen, widerspricht europäischem Recht.

Daher muss die deutsche Umsetzung der 4. Anti-Geldwäsche-Richtlinie nachgebessert werden.

Weil die Berliner Große Koalition alle Aufforderungen bisher ignoriert, haben wir Grünen im Europaparlament eine Vertragsverletzungsbeschwerde bei der EU-Kommission eingereicht.

3 | Ein europäischer Rechtsrahmen für soziale und gute Wohnungen, um nationale Politiken zu koordinieren

Wo wichtige Politik vor allem nationale Zuständigkeit ist, kann die EU dennoch mit einem Rechtsrahmen koordinierend eingreifen.

Wir wollen einen solchen europäischen Rechtsrahmen für soziales und gutes Wohnen.

Sozialer Wohnungsbau muss eine europäische Priorität sein.

Die Durchsetzung der EU-Regeln für staatliche Beihilfen darf nicht zum Nachteil für sozialen Wohnungsbau gegenüber gewinnorientierten Immobilienunternehmen führen oder zur Schaffung von “Ghettos” sozial Benachteiligter führen. Wir wollen vielfältige Nachbarschaften fördern. Die EU-Kommission kann den europäische Rechtsrahmen mit der Methode der offenen Koordinierung Stück für Stück durchsetzen. Die EU-Kommission kann den nationalen Regierungen im Rahmen des Europäischen Semesters gezielt Empfehlungen für soziales Wohnen machen, wo dies besonders notwendig ist.

4 | Ökologischen Wohnraum im Rahmen der verbindlichen EU-Klimaziele sozialverträglich fördern

Das Pariser Klimaabkommen ist ein großer Erfolg der europäischen Diplomatie, um den Klimakollaps zu verhindern. Um das Ziel zu erreichen, die globale Erwärmung auf unter 1,5 Prozent zu begrenzen, müssen alle Länder ihren Verpflichtungen nachkommen. Bis Dezember 2019 muss die Bundesregierung dafür ihren verbindlichen nationalen Aktionsplan zu Klima und Energie an die EU-Kommission melden. Für den Aktionsplan fordern wir eine umfassende Definition zu Energiearmut sowie quantifizierte Ziele und effektive Maßnahmen zu deren Minderung. Um diese Ziele zu erreichen, muss die Bundesregierung eine ambitionierte langfristige Renovierungsstrategie vorzulegen. Die Bundesregierung sollte die Strategie unter Einbeziehung von Vertretern der Armuts- und Frauenverbände sowie von Sozialwohnungsbauvertretern erarbeiten. Die Renovierungstrategie muss die Finanzierung für die Renovierung von Gebäuden, in denen einkommensschwache Menschen wohnen, in den Mittelpunkt stellen. Die Rate der Renovierung muss auf mindestens drei Prozent festgelegt werden. Um sie zu erreichen, braucht es entsprechende Maßnahmen im Bereich Beratung, Finanzierung, Stadt- und Raumplanung.

Wie eine Aktivistin einen dänischen Immobilieninvestor schlug

Das Haus ist an einen Investor verkauft worden. In Berlin ist das nichts Ungewöhnliches, die Stadt erlebt seit Jahren rasant steigende Mieten und leidet unter fehlendem Wohnraum. Es ist eine Folge der großflächigen Privatisierung der städtischen Wohnungsbaugesellschaften in den Neunzigerjahren und des seit Jahren anhaltenden Zuzugs in die Hauptstadt.

In Neukölln gibt es sieben Milieuschutzgebiete, berlinweit sind es 57. Grundlage ist der Paragraf 172 des Baugesetzbuches, der es Gemeinden ermöglicht, Gebiete zu bestimmen, in denen die "städtebauliche Eigenart" oder die "Zusammensetzung der Wohnbevölkerung" geschützt werden sollen.

Der Aufkauf eines ganzen Straßenzuges, die vielen Rentner, deren Wohnungen ausgerechnet von einem Rentenfonds gekauft wurden: Alle Zutaten für öffentliche Empörung waren da. Poeschls Taktik schien aufzugehen.

Neukölln hatte gewonnen, Poeschl war jetzt eine erfolgreiche Aktivistin. Aus dem Stegreif hatte sie eine Kampagne entwickelt, umgesetzt und damit die Wohnungen von 300 Menschen gerettet. Das lokale Berliner Fernsehen zeigte in seinen Abendnachrichten ein paar Tage später, wie ein älteres Ehepaar Poeschl dankbar einen riesigen Geschenkkorb überreichte.

Structural Unemployment - monopolies globalization automation - 3.5 mio USA truck drivers could be unemployed by 2030

In this article, i explain why globalization and free trade, the Euro, the Euro-Zone is increasing unemployment, by making big companies even bigger, killing small companies in the process but never absorbing the work force of those small companies.

Self driving vehicles will kill -3.5 mio truck driver and -1 mio bus and taxi driver jobs


No matter how positive you might think about these details. For society they are BAD, BAD, BAD. More unemployment means more crime, although those drivers could focus on the “skills of tomorrow” and do what machines can not do: develop their creativity and empathy. While i would like to see more truck drivers with empathy, You must be f****ing kidding me?

(src: datausa.io, alltrucking.com)

It’s not a secret.

A lot of companies not only Tesla, Uber and Mercedes are working heavily on autopilots for cars and trucks.

They spend an awful lot of developing them and a few deadly accidents later, let’s say in 2030 – trucks and taxis could be without human driver.

What if those 2.5Mio truck drivers hate self-driving trucks and hit the breaks on robots and block highways – this is what i call disruption – i would understand them, after all, they lose it all and gain nothing – because they do not possess the robots that will replace them.

Not okay: “Joe we will replace you with a robot by 2030”

Somewhat okay, but unrealistic, would need gov intervention: “Joe we will replace you with a robot by 2030, but keep paying you half the salary”

China gov subsidies robot research and development, “255 robots that can work around the clock”







they are used to sort parcels to districts and already replaced 60 human workers

“Simple manual jobs” vanish and new jobs are created in robotics.

… well do you spot a problem here? People hat handle parcels might not be capable of programing robots (who is?).

And once a robot is programed even the programmer himself/herself becomes “obsolete”.

This clearly leads to a way of life that creates unemployment on a massive scale and in-debts private households, because if humans labor (manual or sophisticated) is not needed anymore – what else can they trade with the rest of “free markets”?

Nothing. They have nothing to trade.

Economy 4.0 needs Society 4.0 and LifeStyle 4.0 which would need redistribution of rights and privileges 4.0 or face ever growing desaster


From a mankind perspective – this is economically unsustainable – in the current system – in any universe – unless the robots are owned by all people.

or: the people do not need to work because the robots produce fresh vegetables for them FOR FREE in their own garden (THEY OWN THE GARDEN not Amazon!) and produce their own fresh water (not Nestle!) and produce their own electricity (not another company).

These are technological solution that – at first sight – solve a problem – while increasing inequality and create even bigger problems that were there in the first place – but were smaller.

While human level robots that would automate tasks such as elderly care taking, are still a thing of the future, but companies are never the less working on it and in 2050 – grandmum will be dealing with robots and robots only.

That would be a very sad future.

2016: Company China buys German manufacturing robots company Kuka





2016: “FRANKFURT (Reuters) – China’s Midea (000333.SZ) said it will complete its takeover of German robotics maker Kuka (KU2G.DE) in the first half of January after the United States authorities gave the deal a green light.

Midea, which launched a 4.5 billion euro ($5 billion) offer for Kuka in May, said Germany’s markets regulator had approved the settlement of the transaction, allowing it to control a 94.55 percent voting stake in Kuka from January onwards.” (src: reuters.com)

Artificial Intelligence:


manufacturers and logistic companies, hope to save even more jobs and money with AI.


creativity and empathy are the “skills” of tomorrow


now who in the future 4.0 will pay me the unemployed 4.0 for empathy and creativity?

(i don’t know, maybe an government 4.0)

…when you live in the “unemployment per default” future… or maybe unemployment needs to be redefined? But then also private properties and barb wires will have to go… unlikely to happen under the current mindset… i wonder when Mr Bazos (Amazon, richest man) will buy the world and all it’s resources (especially water) and rent it to us SLAVES… what he already does? That was fast.

News | Tagesschau: Frühjahrsgutachten - Deutscher Konjunkturboom zu Ende


Über Jahre konnte die deutsche Konjunktur deutliche Zuwächse verbuchen. Doch die große Party ist laut Wirtschaftsforschern nun vorbei. Wie erwartet senkten sie ihre Prognose deutlich. Ein Grund: das Brexit-Chaos

Vor dem Hintergrund einer abflauenden Weltkonjunktur sehen führende Wirtschaftsforscher auch ein Ende des Konjunkturbooms in Deutschland. Die fünf führenden Institute senkten ihre Prognose für das laufende Jahr deutlich von 1,9 auf 0,8 Prozent ab. "Der langjährige Aufschwung der deutschen Wirtschaft ist zu Ende", sagt der stellvertretende Präsident des Instituts für Wirtschaftsforschung Halle (IWH), Oliver Holtemöller, zu der veröffentlichten Gemeinschaftsdiagnose. Die Gefahr einer ausgeprägten Rezession halten die Autoren jedoch bislang für gering...

Meine Meinung: Oh ich höre schon das Jammern und das Klagen der deutschen Wirtschaft. Das rufen nach Erleichterungen und den weiteren Abbau von Arbeitnehmerrechten. Und erst der Mindestlohn!

Dossier | LabourNet Germany: Was bei den „Brexit“-Debatten im Hintergrund verschwindet: Ein kaputtes Land. Nach 40 Jahren Neoliberalismus seit der Thatcher-Regierung von 1979


Im Mai 2016 – kurz vor dem Brexit-Referendum – lief ich zu Fuß fast 550 Kilometer von Liverpool nach London, um herauszufinden, was meinem Land gerade passierte. Ich folgte dabei der Route eines Protestmarsches gegen Arbeitslosigkeit, den mein verstorbener Vater im Jahr 1981 mitorganisiert hatte. Damals hatte die Politik der Tory-Partei Englands Industrie verwüstet und die Arbeitslosigkeit in die Höhe schießen lassen. Im Jahr 2016 besiegelten die Tories mit ihrer Austeritätspolitik das Schicksal derselben betroffenen Landstriche. Trotzdem war ich auf meiner Wanderung schockiert vom Ausmaß der Armut, von der schieren Zahl der Obdachlosen und den trostlosen Fußgängerzonen, wo sich mit Brettern vernagelte Geschäfte, Pubs, Zahltag-Kredithaie und Wettbüros aneinanderreihten…

Info: Wirklich lesenswert, auch um die Hintergründe zu verstehen über die wir hier in Deutschland nur wenig mitbekommen.

gap between the USA and other arms weapons exporters widens











(Stockholm, 11 March 2019) The volume of international transfers of major arms in 2014–18 was 7.8 per cent higher than in 2009–13 and 23 per cent higher than in 2004–2008, according to new data on arms transfers published today by the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute (SIPRI).

The five largest exporters in 2014–18 were
  • United States
  • Russia
  • France
  • Germany
  • China
Together, they accounted for 75 per cent of the total volume of arms exports in 2014–18. The flow of arms increased to the Middle East between 2009–13 and 2014–18, while there was a decrease in flows to all other regions.

The gap between the USA and other arms exporters widens


US arms exports grew by 29 per cent between 2009–13 and 2014–18, and the US share of total global exports rose from 30 per cent to 36 per cent. The gap between the top two arms-exporting states also increased: US exports of major arms were 75 per cent higher than Russia’s in 2014–18, while they were only 12 per cent higher in 2009–13. More than half (52 per cent) of US arms exports went to the Middle East in 2014–18.




‘The USA has further solidified its position as the world’s leading arms supplier,’ says Dr Aude Fleurant, Director of the SIPRI Arms and Military Expenditure Programme. ‘The USA exported arms to at least 98 countries in the past five years; these deliveries often included advanced weapons such as combat aircraft, short-range cruise and ballistic missiles, and large numbers of guided bombs.’

Arms exports by Russia decreased by 17 per cent between 2009–13 and 2014–18, in particular due to the reduction in arms imports by India and Venezuela. Between 2009–13 and 2014–18 France increased its arms exports by 43 per cent and Germany by 13 per cent. The combined arms exports of European Union member states accounted for 27 per cent of global arms exports in 2014–18.

A small number of countries outside Europe and North America are large arms exporters. China was the fifth largest arms exporter in 2014–18. Whereas Chinese arms exports rose by 195 per cent between 2004–2008 and 2009–13, they increased by only 2.7 per cent between 2009–13 and 2014–18. Israeli, South Korean and Turkish arms exports increased substantially—60 per cent, 94 per cent and 170 per cent, respectively—between 2009–13 and 2014–18.



Middle Eastern arms imports almost double in the past five years


Arms imports by states in the Middle East increased by 87 per cent between 2009–13 and 2014–18 and accounted for 35 per cent of global arms imports in 2014–18. Saudi Arabia became the world’s largest arms importer in 2014–18, with an increase of 192 per cent compared with 2009–13. Arms imports by Egypt, the third largest arms importer in 2014–18, tripled (206 per cent) between 2009–13 and 2014–18. Arms imports by Israel (354 per cent), Qatar (225 per cent) and Iraq (139 per cent) also rose between 2009–13 and 2014–18. However, Syria’s arms imports fell by 87 per cent.

‘Weapons from the USA, the United Kingdom and France are in high demand in the Gulf region, where conflicts and tensions are rife,’ says Pieter D. Wezeman, Senior Researcher with the SIPRI Arms and Military Expenditure Programme. ‘Russia, France and Germany dramatically increased their arms sales to Egypt in the past five years.’

Asia and Oceania remains the largest importer region


States in Asia and Oceania received 40 per cent of global arms imports in 2014–18, but there was a decrease of 6.7 per cent compared with 2009–13. The top five arms importers in the region were India, Australia, China, South Korea and Viet Nam.

Australia became the world’s fourth largest arms importer in 2014–18 after its arms imports increased by 37 per cent compared with 2009–13. Indian arms imports decreased by 24 per cent between 2009–13 and 2014–18. Russia accounted for 58 per cent of India’s arms imports in 2014–18. Chinese arms imports decreased, but it was still the world’s sixth largest arms importer in 2014–18.

‘India has ordered a large number of major arms from foreign suppliers; however, deliveries are severely delayed in many cases,’ says Siemon T. Wezeman, Senior Researcher with the SIPRI Arms and Military Expenditure Programme. ‘In contrast, Chinese arms imports decreased because China has been more successful in designing and producing its own modern weaponry.’

Other notable developments:

  • Between 2009–13 and 2014–18 arms imports decreased by states in the Americas (–36 per cent), in Europe (–13 per cent), and in Africa (–6.5 per cent).
  • Algeria accounted for 56 per cent of African imports of major arms in 2014–18. Most other states in Africa import very few major arms.
  • The top five arms importers in sub-Saharan Africa were Nigeria, Angola, Sudan, Cameroon and Senegal. Together, they accounted for 56 per cent of arms imports to the subregion.
  • Between 2009–13 and 2014–18 British arms exports increased by 5.9 per cent. In 2014–18 a total of 59 per cent of British arms exports went to the Middle East, the vast bulk of which was made up of deliveries of combat aircraft to Saudi Arabia and Oman.
  • Venezuelan arms imports fell by 83 per cent between 2009–13 and 2014–18.
  • China delivered major arms to 53 countries in 2014–18, compared with 41 in 2009–13 and 32 in 2004–2008. Pakistan was the main recipient (37 per cent) in 2014–18, as it has been for all five-year periods since 1991.

For editors


The SIPRI Arms Transfers Database contains information on all international transfers of major arms (including sales, gifts and production licences) to states, international organizations and armed non-state groups from 1950 to the most recent full calendar year, 2018. SIPRI data reflects the volume of deliveries of arms, not the financial value of the deals. As the volume of deliveries can fluctuate significantly year-on-year, SIPRI presents data for five-year periods, giving a more stable measure of trends.

Free Trade increases competition produces monopolies - competition is conflict is unemployment is war is against humanitarian principles and inalienable rights - Wirtschaft Wettbewerb Krieg




Competition – THE key word for many economists for
  • progress defined as:
    • (hopefully) cheaper product prices
    • (hopefully) more innovative products
Free trade zones (EU, Euro, NAFTA, TTIP) and the abolition of customs duties serve solely to intensify competition.

It brings companies from different countries that produce the same (e.g. cars) in even more direct conflict with each other without a tariff firewall – while at the same time – all the local laws and regulations are still in place – so it’s an unfair competition.

This in fact – leads to closing down of many companies that can not compete.

One example are German Solar Panel producers (could not compete with China, especially not after they bought machines from Germany to manufacturer solar panels of even higher quality) so they had to close down – now basically ALL solar panels and batteries sold in Germany come from Asia – is this good?

Good for Asia bad for Germany.

the Berlin (fire)wall


A lot of East-German companies were closed down straight after the fall of the Berlin (fire)wall – West-German companies did not want to have more competition in the same country/free trade zone.

this is the “creative destruction” that also lead to the economic downfall of East-Germany and 30 years later – unemployment is still way higher than in West-Germany, still people flee these countries, it has not recovered to old strengths – this form of (more or less creative) “destruction”/demolition/closing down of East-German companies was and is a catastrophe for East and West-Germany.

No more people vote far-right in East-Germany than in West-Germany – for exactly this reason.

So i guess we have to decide – more profits at any costs – or engage in more sustainable ways of conduct – after all the next financial crisis will come because it’s the fundamental defects of the debt-money system are not fixed (except maybe in Canada, because the government of Canada has a law that says, the (cash printing) Central Bank of Canada HAS to buy state-bonds – no matter what)).

The EU:


If Kohl and Mitterrand argued (both fathers of the EU and the Euro) – that the EU is a peace project – he just increased amount of conflicts by this free trade zone.

It is not called a free trade zone but that is exactly what it is.

Now highly in debt south states (Greece, Italy, Spain) lost the free trade whoever has more slaves and the cheaper economy game to the North and everybody is angry and the whole thing creates a lot of anger.

The EU-project has shutdown all trade-firewalls across Europe (Switzerland was not that stupid) and with every free trade deal, trade-firewalls with USA, Japan and China are gradually shut down – also hurting German companies that (just as US companies) are paying their people a higher wage than Chinese companies would do.

So the state itself abolishes all means to protect their companies and hopes that everything will regulate itself.

What happens is – when one company has won the competition – the other company needs to close down – resulting in mass unemployment.

Trump still firmly believes in capitalism, but apparently no longer in globalization as means to bring mankind forward (or at least reduce US debt).

Trump restarts the US-trade-Firewalls because he realizes that US is losing the economic war against the Rest of the world.

This economy is unfortunately a war like situation – often not played with fair means. (China is very strategically buying up Western companies with state-loans, that would be like: Amazon gets a governmental loan to buy/take over Alibaba and expand it’s monopoly)

So free trade increases monopolies – also not good.

Even if Greek cars – can not immediately compete with German cars – they should build their own cars – just to be independent from a maybe soon to be dysfunctional monopolistic car manufacturer market – but yes – also to create jobs and build skills.

NAFTA has brought Mexican corn farmers (a lot of manual labor, little machines and chemicals) in DIRECT TRADE CONFLICT with U.S. corn farmers (a lot of automation/machines and chemicals) with devastating consequences.
Competition is good, but having only competition is not good” (Bernhard Lietaer, 2015)

i never quiet understood while every small farmer and small shop keeper “Aunt Emma” has to be brought into compete with all farmers and shop keepers of this world?

I would argue it results in:
  • less innovation
  • more unemployment
    • because a lot of small shops will close down
    • everything becomes more monopolistic and monolithic “monopoly” and reduced to efficiency
    • efficiency in this terms means: less jobs, because wages cost money
  • this means: poverty, stress and anger
    • resulting in revolutions, political and religious extremism and sicknesses
    • conflict between races, religions
    • “great”, not exactly where i want to go from here. Image/photo
  • “The idea that certain rights are natural or inalienable also has a history dating back at least to the Stoics of late Antiquity and Catholic law of the early Middle Ages, and descending through the Protestant Reformation and the Age of Enlightenment to today.” (src: Wikipedia)
Right now the German health care system (thanks to our stupid and corrupt politician puppets and their “advisors” (evil influencers)) get’s sold – just as it’s democracy.

Politicians changed 4 words in a law, and now German HealthCare becomes more privatized and monolithic.

A lot of small doctors will have to close their practice and tell the patients, sorry i mean “customers” or “products”, to take a longer road trip of 100km to the next doctor-HQ, where 100x doctors work in one practice.

More travel costs for the patient but of course – when 100x doctors share the same house and machines – they can “process” more patients per day and hour.

German Supermarkets Aldi and Lidl – do it just like their customers – they only offer few products but in massive quantities.

The small companies vanish the big get bigger – but not every small shop keeper will travel 100km a day to work for the big players.

forget your nice theories about reality. they do not work and are at best “mistakes” and at worst blatant lies that will hurt and anger many many people.

If you want more anger keep going!


Most Lethal Competition: war

Competition – THE key word for many economists for
  • progress defined as:
    • (hopefully) cheaper product prices
    • (hopefully) more innovative products
I would argue that “more competition” “more free trade” does not solve the problem – if the monetary system is fundamentally broken or in other words: no matter how cheap the product – if people have no money to buy them.

This is unsustainable and asking for trouble

Free trade zones (EU, Euro, NAFTA, TTIP) and the abolition of customs duties serve solely to intensify competition.

Ein Mann, sie alle zu enteignen

Zum Hauptfeind haben Taheri und 80 Mitstreiter, die sich auf ein Netzwerk von 200 Mieterinitiativen stützen, die Deutsche Wohnen erklärt. Der börsennotierte Konzern besitzt bundesweit 160 000 Wohnungen, darunter 112 000 in Berlin. Gerade gab er für 2018 einen Gewinn von 1,9 Milliarden Euro bekannt.
Was sind das für Menschen, die sich für derartige Konzerne noch einsetzen? Ich tippe auf Aktionäre der beiden, sowie Marktradikale und Libertäre. Überschneidungen in den Kategorien durchaus vorgesehen, versteht sich.
Eine Enteignung nach den Kriterien des Volksbegehrens würde etwa ein Dutzend Unternehmen in Berlin treffen. "Wir müssen ein Stoppsignal gegen den Mietenwahnsinn setzen", sagt Taheri. "Wohnen ist ein Menschenrecht." Doch gleich die Enteignungskeule schwingen? "Eine radikale Lebenswirklichkeit verlangt auch nach radikalen Lösungen."
Oder, wie es Vonovia ausdrückt (ich glaube, dass es Vonovia war, viel Unterschied macht es ohnehin nicht): «Leben heißt Veränderung».
Angesichts dieser Gemengelage wirkt Taheri entschlossen. Kritik und teils harsche Angriffe aus der Wohnungswirtschaft prallen an ihm ab. Er könne verstehen, dass Reizworte wie Enteignung oder Vergesellschaftung auch Ängste auslösten, sagt er. "Aber es geht nicht um Enteignungen wie in der DDR oder im Nationalsozialismus." Die Unternehmen würden angemessen entschädigt. Das Volksbegehren sei ein Akt der Notwehr. "Sie können Konzerne nicht mehr reformieren, die allein den Interessen ihrer Aktionäre verpflichtet sind."

Gespräch über den Zustand der EU und des Euro - das Erbe von Kohl und Mitterrand - doomed to fail and beyond repair?


modernes Geld:

  • besteht aus nullen und einsen auf festplatten (was Prof Dr Ehnts “Excel” Tabellen nennt) privater Banken (Giral-Geld, Buch-Geld)
  • in einer Druckerei in England auf Verlangen der EZB gedruckter Bargeld/”Cash” d.h. buntem Papier mit Mario Draghi’s Unterschrift darauf
  • sowohl Digitales Excel Tabellen Geld wie Bargeld ist NICHT durch irgendeinen garantierten Gegenwert gedeckt (Gold oder Silber).
  • Das Geldsystem regelt als eine Art “Rechtssystem” einen sehr wichtigsten Aspekt der Menschheit: Den Zugriff auf Ressourcen.
    • wer mehr Geld hat bekommt, kann mehr Ressourcen des Planeten (Häuser, Felder, Firmen, Metall) “besitzen”.
    • die beinah endlose Diskussion (ich will nicht sagen Streit) ist, wie man dieses Geld-Rechts-Ressourcen-Sytem gestaltet
      • denn es ist von Menschen gemacht und wie jedes menschliche Produkt relativ unvollkommen (best möglich, aber nicht perfekt und leider natürlich von Interessen getrieben
        • d.h. jeder “Teilnehmer” möchte möglichst viel Zugriff auf Geld und die Ressourcen des Planeten erhalten (ein Mensch der Arbeit verrichtet ist aus Sicht des Systems auch nur eine Ressource, “Human Ressources”)
        • Ziel des Systems müsste (eigentlich) sein:
          - das nachhaltige Überleben der Menschheit und anderen Lebensformen zu sichern
          - eine friedliche Koexistenz und Kooperation zu ermöglichen
          - gesellschaftlichen wie technologischen Fortschritt (nachhaltiger, schneller, höher, weiter, günstiger) der Menschheit zu fördern
          - gesellschaftlicher Fortschritt wäre z. B.:
          - dass es zu keinen Revolutionen und Revolten kommt
          - dass Menschen (auch in Deutschland) wieder Familien gründen und Kinder kriegen möchten
          - dass die Kriminalitätsrate sinkt
          - von technologischem Fortschritt kann man (denke ich) sprechen:
          - wenn z.B. durch Energiespeicher von Sommer nach Winter kein Wald mehr abgeholzt werden muss.
          - aber auch wenn (natürlich) das Internet schneller wird (es ist scheinbar in Russland viel schneller als in Deutschland)

Die These:


Prof Dr Ehnts sagt – “der Finanzmarkt” / “der freie Markt” (Investoren, Banken, Versicherungen) garantieren keine Vollbeschäftigung und s.h. Griechenland (40% Jugendarbeitslosigkeit) hat er auch recht.
  • Es muss eine Rückkehr zu einem Hybriden Schulden-System statt finden
    • d.h. dieses System bleibt nur durch immer neue Schulden ( = Investitionen und Konsum) am laufen, aber in einer “Krise” d.h. wenn private Haushalte/Unternehmen kein Wachstum sehen, werden diese keine Kredite nehmen und keine neuen Schulden machen
      • (aktuell der Fall, ausser in der Bauwirtschaft wird die nächste Immobilienblase gebaut, weil die Zinsen ja so günstig sind)
    • wenn Privat keine neue Schulden machen möchte/kann/will, muss der Staat “einspringen” und neue Schulden machen, neues Geld in Umlauf bringen durch entweder: mehr staatliche Angestellte (Mehr Geld für LEHRER!, Professoren, Ärzte in staatlichen Krankenhäusern, Steuer-Fahndungs-Beamte, Polizisten) oder Finanzierung privater Projekte (Stuttgart 21? X-D) und die EZB zum Aufkauf ihrer Staatsanleihen zwingen (+3-5% pro Jahr)
      • (Bandenwürttemberg und Berlin könnte versuchen eigene Staatsanleihen heraus zu geben und die EZB zum Kauf dieser zu Zwingen, oder Bandenwürttemberg wird am S21 und Flughafen Projekt (ein tiefes Loch wo man viel Geld hinein werfen kann) pleite gehen, Gratulation allen Beteiligten)

Hans Werner ist dagegen: SBBS (Sovereign Bond Backed Securities)


“Das Bundesverfassungsgericht hat sich in seinem Vorlagenbeschluss an den Europäischen Gerichtshof, der in den nächsten Wochen verhandelt wird, sehr kritisch gegenüber der EZB geäußert und sich auf die Seite der Kläger gestellt.

Die Kläger hatten moniert, dass das Kaufprogramm eine Staatsfinanzierung mit der Druckerpresse bedeutet und insofern den Maastrichter Vertrag verletzt (Artikel 123 AEUV)

“Deutschland hatte dieses Verbot der Monetarisierung der Staatsschulden seinerzeit verlangt, da dem Land die Hyperinflation der Weimarer Republik mit all ihren katastrophalen Folgen noch in den Knochen steckte.”

“Das Kaufprogramm zu beenden oder gar rückabzuwickeln würde die Banken und Staaten Südeuropas allerdings in ernste Schwierigkeiten bringen. Deswegen arbeitet man in Brüssel und Frankfurt fieberhaft daran, ein Programm aufzulegen, das die Nachfrage nach den Staatspapieren hoch verschuldeter Euro-Länder verstärkt.”

Auf gut Deutsch: die EZB würde gezwungen Staatsanleihen mit frisch gedrucktem Geld kaufen – aber natürlich alles mit Maßen d.h. +3-5% pro Jahr, das meint Er mit “Nachfrage”.

“Ein solches, eng mit der EZB abgestimmtes Programm hat die EU-Kommission kürzlich unter dem Kürzel SBBS präsentiert.”

“Allgemein nennt man solche strukturierten Wertpapiere ABS-Papiere (Asset Backed Securities).

ABS-Papiere, die aus Darlehensansprüchen gegen wenig solvente Hausbesitzer zusammengemischt waren –das Stichwort lautet Subprime –, standen im Mittelpunkt der amerikanischen Finanzkrise. Vor zehn Jahren hätte sie die Finanzwelt beinahe in den Abgrund gerissen. Der Großinvestor Warren Buffett nannte die ABS-Papiere damals „Massenvernichtungswaffen“.”

Moment mal:


Stimmt, nur dass in diesem Fall Staaten das Geld zurück zahlen sollen und nicht Private Haushalte!

Die Frage ist – ob man als Staat heutzutage pleite gehen kann (Kanada nicht, jedenfalls nicht in kanadische Dollar) oder ob man Staaten und Banken wie private Unternehmen/Haushalte behandeln und pleite gehen lassen soll oder nicht? (vermutlich nicht).

Es würde automatisch eine EU-Feindlichkeit beschwören welcher dann ein Austritt aus dem Euro und die Wiedereinführung einer nationalen Währung bedeutet – ich denke die Griechen werden dabei auf Brüssel keine Rücksicht nehmen.

Zwei Probleme:

  • Handels-Defizite, welche vermutlich nie 100%tig ausgeglichen werden (Ja Herr Varoufakis, Griechische Autos können nicht mit Deutschen Autos konkurrieren, weil diese nicht existieren, dafür können Griechische Oliven nicht mit Deutschen konkurrieren, weil in Deutschland keine Oliven wachsen… d.h. wäre die “Lösung” gewesen, den Handel zu beschränken? (1000L Olivenöl für 1Mercedes)
  • Schuld Geld System (SGS): Wenn in einem Schuld-Geld-System NIEMAND Lust hat neue Schulden zu machen, kommt (scheinbar, so auch Prof Dr Ehnts) alles zum Stillstand.
D.h. was ist uns wichtiger – dass das Projekt Euro weiter geht oder dass es zerfällt?

Geld wird so oder so gedruckt werden müssen – national oder international von Privat oder von Staat – weil so gut wie alle Haushalte ein Handelsdefizit aufweisen (mehr Geld ausgeben, als eingenommen wird).

Andere Lösung: Griechenland muss tatsächlich anfangen eigene Autos zu bauen um von Deutschen Autobauern unabhängig zu sein.

Auch eine Möglichkeit, aber keine welche VW, BMW und Daimler Benz gefallen wird.

Electric SuperCar made in Croatia:


Aussenhandelsdefizit am Beispiel meiner Person:


Beispiel mein Haushalt als Privatperson:
  • Ich habe mindestens zwei von mir “veredelte” HighTech Produkte bei eBay, welche ich in Serie produziert werden könnten, von welchen ich absolut überzeugt war, dass diese äußerst sinnvoll sind und eigentlich eine Nachfrage nach diesen Produkten existieren müsste.
  • “Der Markt” sieht das anders, von Produkt A konnten gerade mal 10x Stück verkauft werden in einem Jahr und von Produkt B, leider kein einziges. Eine sehr ernüchternde Bilanz, deswegen brauche ich aktuell keinen Kredit und werde niemanden anstellen, weil die Nachfrage nicht da ist… warum, kann ich im Detail nicht beantworten, evtl. weil “die anderen” privaten Haushalte auch sparen müssen, keinen Kredit kriegen.
  • Klar könnte ich noch aggressiveres Marketing machen und via Spam-Mail-Datenbank die Menschheit mit Werbung zu-müllen um evtl. doch noch einen Nennenswerten “Außenhandels-Überschuss” mit anderen privaten Haushalten zu erzielen.
  • Ich möchte mich ja gerne als ein wirtschaftlich leistungsfähiges Individuum in die Handels-Gemeinschaft mit hochwertigen und fairen Produkten einbringen.

Problem: Mangelnde Investitionsbereitschaft?


D.h. privaten Institutionen fehlt einfach Geld und jeder spart wo er nur kann und verschiebt Investitionen und Konsum in den nächsten Monat oder gar in’s nächste Quartal oder Jahr.

Scheinbar kommen vom neu erstellten digitalen Buchgeld weniger als 10% in der Realwirtschaft an, 90% “verzockt” die Bank direkt selbst.

Leider beschränkt sich Herr Sinn in diesem Artikel auf Kritik ohne einen einzigen konstruktiven Alternativ-Vorschlag aufzuzeigen.

Dann ist sein ganzer Artikel zwar schön – aber bringt uns auch nicht weiter, ausser sowohl der Euro als auch die EU “kann weg” und jedes Land führt wieder eine nationale Währung ein.

Könnte tatsächlich das Beste sein.

common currencies – why actually?


“Kohl said that the idea behind the euro was to avoid another war in Europe.”

“I wanted to bring the euro because to me it meant the irreversibility of European development… for me the euro was a synonym for Europe going further,” Kohl said.

But he admitted that in bringing this idea to life he “was like a dictator.”

“Nations with a common currency never went to war against each other. A common currency is more than the money you pay with,” he said.

He recalled French President Francois Mitterand – and other European leaders of the time – repeatedly urged him to push through the common currency idea, which was not very popular in Germany.

“for me the euro was a synonym for Europe going further,” Kohl said.

“No more war – that was the first message. That was the point for men like Mitterand and Kohl, who in 1984 held hands on the Verdun battlefield. It wasn’t about German reunification first and foremost.”

Das Erbe von Kohl und Mitterrand: doomed to fail and beyond repair?


Ich befürchte Herr Kohl lügt sich da was in die Tasche, oft ist ja nicht klar ob er auch glaubt was er sagt oder einfach darauf vertraut dass ein “Berater” ihm schon das richtige raten wird. (scheinbar behaupten Berater oft sich auszukennen, was diese aber oft auch nicht tun, das einzige worauf man Gift nehmen kann ist, dass Berater immer mit den Interessen desjenigen kommen, von welchem diese bezahlt werden (mehrere hundert Euro pro Stunde).

These: Der Euro / die EU sei ein Friedensprojekt:


Der Euro / die EU ist faktisch eine Freihandelszone ohne Zölle mit einer gleich-geschalteter Währung (quasi feste Wechselkurse).

In einer Freihandelszone kann ein Staat seine Unternehmen (Frankreich: Renault gegen VW, Deutsche Logistik-Unternehmen gegen Rumänische, Tschechische und Polnische) nicht schützen und es gewinnt IMMER der wirtschaftlich stärkere/effizientere (Deutschland, evtl. noch Polen und Rumänien aufgrund der geringen Löhne) und verliert der wirtschaftlich schwächere (Frankreich, Spanien, Italien, Griechenland).

Inwiefern sollte das dem Frieden zwischen diesen Ländern dienen?

Das genaue Gegenteil ist der Fall.

Was Herr Kohl meinte ist: Auf seine Kunden schießt man nicht, weil dann kaufen die nie wieder ein.

X-D) und die EZB zum Aufkauf ihrer Staatsanleihen zwingen (+3-5% pro Jahr)
      • (Bandenwürttemberg und Berlin könnte versuchen eigene Staatsanleihen heraus zu geben und die EZB zum Kauf dieser zu Zwingen, oder Bandenwürttemberg wird am S21 und Flughafen Projekt (ein tiefes Loch wo man viel Geld hinein werfen kann) pleite gehen, Gratulation allen Beteiligten)

Hans Werner ist dagegen: SBBS (Sovereign Bond Backed Securities)


“Das Bundesverfassungsgericht hat sich in seinem Vorlagenbeschluss an den Europäischen Gerichtshof, der in den nächsten Wochen verhandelt wird, sehr kritisch gegenüber der EZB geäußert und sich auf die Seite der Kläger gestellt.

Die Kläger hatten moniert, dass das Kaufprogramm eine Staatsfinanzierung mit der Druckerpresse bedeutet und insofern den Maastrichter Vertrag verletzt (Artikel 123 AEUV)

“Deutschland hatte dieses Verbot der Monetarisierung der Staatsschulden seinerzeit verlangt, da dem Land die Hyperinflation der Weimarer Republik mit all ihren katastrophalen Folgen noch in den Knochen steckte.”

“Das Kaufprogramm zu beenden oder gar rückabzuwickeln würde die Banken und Staaten Südeuropas allerdings in ernste Schwierigkeiten bringen. Deswegen arbeitet man in Brüssel und Frankfurt fieberhaft daran, ein Programm aufzulegen, das die Nachfrage nach den Staatspapieren hoch verschuldeter Euro-Länder verstärkt.”

Auf gut Deutsch: die EZB würde gezwungen Staatsanleihen mit frisch gedrucktem Geld kaufen – aber natürlich alles mit Maßen d.h. +3-5% pro Jahr, das meint Er mit “Nachfrage”.

“Ein solches, eng mit der EZB abgestimmtes Programm hat die EU-Kommission kürzlich unter dem Kürzel SBBS präsentiert.”

“Allgemein nennt man solche strukturierten Wertpapiere ABS-Papiere (Asset Backed Securities).

ABS-Papiere, die aus Darlehensansprüchen gegen wenig solvente Hausbesitzer zusammengemischt waren –das Stichwort lautet Subprime –, standen im Mittelpunkt der amerikanischen Finanzkrise. Vor zehn Jahren hätte sie die Finanzwelt beinahe in den Abgrund gerissen. Der Großinvestor Warren Buffett nannte die ABS-Papiere damals „Massenvernichtungswaffen“.”

Moment mal:


Stimmt, nur dass in diesem Fall Staaten das Geld zurück zahlen sollen und nicht Private Haushalte !

Die Frage ist – ob man als Staat heutzutage pleite gehen kann (Kanada nicht, jedenfalls nicht in kanadische Dollar) oder ob man Staaten wie Unternehmen, Banken und private Haushalte behandeln und pleite gehen lassen soll oder nicht? (vermutlich nicht)

Es würde automatisch eine EU-Feindlichkeit beschwören welcher dann ein Austritt aus dem Euro und die Wiedereinführung einer nationalen Währung bedeutet – ich denke die Griechen werden dabei auf Brüssel keine Rücksicht nehmen.

Zwei Probleme:

  • Handels-Defizite, welche vermutlich nie 100%tig ausgeglichen werden (Ja Herr Varoufakis, Griechische Autos können nicht mit Deutschen Autos konkurrieren, weil diese nicht existieren, dafür können Griechische Oliven nicht mit Deutschen konkurrieren, weil in Deutschland keine Oliven wachsen)
  • Schuld Geld System (SGS): Wenn in einem Schuld-Geld-System NIEMAND Lust hat neue Schulden zu machen, kommt (scheinbar, so auch Prof Dr Ehnts) alles zum Stillstand.
D.h. was ist uns wichtiger – dass das Projekt Euro weiter geht oder dass es zerfällt?

Geld wird so oder so gedruckt werden müssen – national oder international von Privat oder von Staat – weil so gut wie alle Haushalte ein Handelsdefizit aufweisen (mehr Geld ausgeben, als eingenommen wird).

Aussenhandelsdefizit am Beispiel meiner Person:


Beispiel mein Haushalt als Privatperson:
  • Ich habe mindestens zwei von mir “veredelte” HighTech Produkte bei eBay, welche ich in Serie produziert werden könnten, von welchen ich absolut überzeugt war, dass diese äußerst sinnvoll sind und eigentlich eine Nachfrage nach diesen Produkten existieren müsste.
  • “Der Markt” sieht das anders, von Produkt A konnten gerade mal 10x Stück verkauft werden in einem Jahr und von Produkt B, leider kein einziges. Eine sehr ernüchternde Bilanz, deswegen brauche ich aktuell keinen Kredit und werde niemanden anstellen, weil die Nachfrage nicht da ist… warum, kann ich im Detail nicht beantworten, evtl. weil “die anderen” privaten Haushalte auch sparen müssen, keinen Kredit kriegen.
  • Klar könnte ich noch aggressiveres Marketing machen und via Spam-Mail-Datenbank die Menschheit mit Werbung zu-müllen um evtl. doch noch einen Nennenswerten “Außenhandels-Überschuss” mit anderen privaten Haushalten zu erzielen.
  • Ich möchte mich ja gerne als ein wirtschaftlich leistungsfähiges Individuum in die Handels-Gemeinschaft mit hochwertigen und fairen Produkten einbringen.

Problem: Mangelnde Investitionsbereitschaft?


D.h. privaten Institutionen fehlt einfach Geld und jeder spart wo er nur kann und verschiebt Investitionen und Konsum in den nächsten Monat oder gar in’s nächste Quartal oder Jahr.

Scheinbar kommen vom neu erstellten digitalen Buchgeld weniger als 10% in der Realwirtschaft an, 90% “verzockt” die Bank direkt selbst.

Leider beschränkt sich Herr Sinn in diesem Artikel auf Kritik ohne einen einzigen konstruktiven Alternativ-Vorschlag aufzuzeigen.

Dann ist sein ganzer Artikel zwar schön – aber bringt uns auch nicht weiter, ausser sowohl der Euro als auch die EU “kann weg” und jedes Land führt wieder eine nationale Währung ein.

Könnte tatsächlich das Beste sein.

common currencies – why actually?


“Kohl said that the idea behind the euro was to avoid another war in Europe.”

“I wanted to bring the euro because to me it meant the irreversibility of European development… for me the euro was a synonym for Europe going further,” Kohl said.

But he admitted that in bringing this idea to life he “was like a dictator.”

“Nations with a common currency never went to war against each other. A common currency is more than the money you pay with,” he said.

He recalled French President Francois Mitterand – and other European leaders of the time – repeatedly urged him to push through the common currency idea, which was not very popular in Germany.

“for me the euro was a synonym for Europe going further,” Kohl said.

“No more war – that was the first message. That was the point for men like Mitterand and Kohl, who in 1984 held hands on the Verdun battlefield. It wasn’t about German reunification first and foremost.”

Das Erbe von Kohl und Mitterrand: doomed to fail and beyond repair?


Ich befürchte Herr Kohl lügt sich da was in die Tasche, oft ist ja nicht klar ob er auch glaubt was er sagt oder einfach darauf vertraut dass ein “Berater” ihm schon das richtige raten wird. (scheinbar behaupten Berater oft sich auszukennen, was diese aber oft auch nicht tun)

These1) Der Euro / die EU sein ein Friedensprojekt:

Der Euro / die EU ist faktisch eine Freihandelszone ohne Zölle mit einer gleichgeschalteten Währung – in einer Freihandelszone gewinnt IMMER der wirtschaftlich stärkere/effizientere (Deutschland) und verliert der wirtschaftlich schwächere (Frankreich).

Inwiefern sollte das dem Frieden zwischen diesen Ländern dienen?

is the real estate bubble starting to collapse in Australia? - trapped in their property mortgage

as you might now… 2008 was a real estate crisis, according to Dr Prof Ehnts 1929 was a combination of stock market crash and real estate bubble bursting… now let’s hope “they” won’t get the timing right this time.

https://youtu.be/vRSdiq3sOTc

it’s always the same with capitalism… it “works so well” that it completely get’s out of balance – on purpose?

But who profits?

Those that see it coming and shop cheap during disaster – after all you all probably know the old Baron Rothshild’s saying – you have to buy when blood is running on the streets – mankind is not savage by nature – capitalism is.

“Housing and banking expert Martin North North has criticized developers and the housing industry for “throwing up” high-rise buildings at such alarmingly fast rates.

He warned viewers that significant defects and safety concerns are imminent.”

The Rothschild Family

Baron Rothschild: “the time to buy is when there’s blood in the streets.”





to be honest – i would like investors to do the exact opposite – i would like them to invest into stability – into making societies and economies fair, just and resilient – and not profit from the suffering of others – like vampires.

in short: be good citizens.
  • give 0% loans to people that need a modest home
  • give 0% loans to people that want to produce their own food, electricity, heating
  • give 0% loans to institutions that research technology for the benefit of all mankind
or you will have crash, crisis and violence over and over again.




The Rothschilds, a prominent family originally from Germany, established banking and finance houses in Europe beginning in the 18th century. Pioneers in providing capital for business and financing infrastructure projects such as railways and the Suez Canal, the Rothschilds molded the way the international world of high finance works today.

The Rothschild empire had its genesis during the 1760s when Mayer Amschel Rothschild (1744-1812) founded a banking business in his native Frankfurt, in the German duchy of Hesse. Over time, and with the help of his five sons, the family business expanded throughout several European countries.

Mayer Amschel Rothschild: The Founder


The Rothschilds’ empire had humble beginnings. Its founder, Mayer Amschel Rothschild, was born in 1744 and raised in Frankfurt’s Jewish ghetto.

During that era, Jews were legally required to live in small communities that were separate from Christians. They were also not allowed to leave their villages at night, on Sundays or on Christian holidays.

As a child, Rothschild lived in a house with about 30 other family members and learned about the business world at an early age – his father, Amschel Moses Rothschild, traded coins, silk and other commodities for a living. One of Amschel Rothschild’s clients was Crown Prince Wilhelm of Hesse.

Mayer Rothschild became an orphan at age 12, when his mother and father died in a smallpox epidemic. Before their passing, Rothschild’s parents wanted their son to become a rabbi. However, shortly after his 13th birthday, he decided to take an apprenticeship with a banking firm in Hanover, Germany. During his time there, Rothschild learned the ins and outs of banking and foreign trade from bankers who used their extensive connections and financial skills to advise and serve the reigning nobility; some of these bankers had risen to the status of what were known as “court Jews,” or court factors.

The Beginnings of a Banking Empire


Rothschild returned to his hometown of Frankfurt when he turned 19. Along with his brothers, he continued the commodities and money-trading business their father had started and also sold rare coins. Through his rare coin business, Rothschild met Crown Prince Wilhelm, who in 1785 became Wilhelm IX, Landgrave of Hesse-Kassel, and eventually the European continent’s richest man. Rothschild was soon providing other banking services to Wilhelm and a number of nobles, and by 1769, he was given the title of court factor. In 1770, he married and went on to have 10 children – five sons and five daughters.

Expanding and Controlling the Rothschild Footprint


The Rothschild banking empire benefited tremendously from the French Revolution. During the war, the Austrian army contracted Rothschild to supply it with a range of items, including wheat, uniforms, horses and equipment; he also facilitated monetary transactions for Hessian mercenary soldiers. Around that time, Rothschild sent his sons to live in the capital cities of various European countries with the goal of establishing banking businesses in Naples, Vienna, Paris and London, in addition to Frankfurt. With Mayer Rothschild’s children spread across Europe, the five linked branches became, in effect, the first bank to transcend borders. Lending to governments to finance war operations over several centuries provided the Rothschild family with ample opportunity to accumulate bonds and build additional wealth in a range of different industries.

Before he died in 1812, Mayer Rothschild left strict rules for his descendants on how they should handle the family’s finances. He wanted to keep the fortune within the family and, as such, encouraged the arrangement of marriages among relatives. According to an article published in the August 2003 issue of Discover magazine entitled “Go Ahead, Kiss Your Cousin,” “Mayer Amschel Rothschild arranged his affairs so that cousin marriages among his descendants were inevitable. His will barred female descendants from any direct inheritance. Without an inheritance, female Rothschilds had few possible marriage partners of the same religion and suitable economic and social stature – except other Rothschilds. Rothschild brides bound the family together. Four of Mayer’s granddaughters married grandsons, and one married her uncle. These were hardly people whose mate choice was limited by the distance they could walk on their day off.”

Nathan Mayer Rothschild


Of the four Rothschilds who ventured out, Nathan, the third son (1777-1836), achieved the greatest success. Nathan took over the lead role in pioneering international finance. Using a network of carrier pigeons and couriers to communicate with his siblings, Nathan acted as a central bank for Europe – brokering purchases for kings, rescuing national banks and funding infrastructure, such as railroads, that would help start the Industrial Revolution.

Nathan had moved to England in 1798. There he founded a textile jobbing business with £20,000 of working capital, the equivalent of £2 million today. He also began trading on the London Stock Exchange and eventually founded a bank, which became N M Rothschild & Sons Ltd. The firm is the country’s seventh oldest bank in continuous operation. Although privately held and still controlled by the Rothschild family, N M Rothschild & Sons Ltd. reported a net income of £51.558 million in 2015.

Like the other Rothschild banks that were subsequently set up throughout Europe, N M Rothschild & Sons Ltd. furnished credit to the government during times of war and crisis. During the Napoleonic Wars, for example, it managed and financed various subsidies the British government sent to its different allies and lent funds to pay the British troops, almost single-handedly financing the British war effort.

In 1824 he and Moses Montefiore cofounded the Alliance Assurance Company, which lives on today as RSA Insurance Group. Nathan also helped fund the newly founded country of Belgium in 1830 and gained the rights to the Almadén mines from the Spanish government in 1835, securing a European monopoly on mercury, which was used to refine gold and silver. The supply of the chemical came in handy in the 1850s, when NM Rothschild & Sons started to refine gold and silver for the Bank of England and the Royal Mint.

Growing Philanthropic Activities


Nathan contributed to many areas of philanthropy in the Jewish community. His family later expanded these charitable efforts to other populations in Paris and London. His earliest efforts went toward synagogues in London. He continued to champion this work, which eventually led to the formation of United Synagogue, a larger organization that helped streamline the causes of the smaller individual synagogues. Later, various family members supported the creation of Israel and helped with the construction of government buildings.

Rothschild had seven children with his wife, Hannah Barent Cohen. Those children followed and built on their family’s philanthropic tradition. The Rothschild Archive reports that Nathan’s youngest child, Louise, and her seven daughters took responsibility for many of the 30 Rothschild charitable foundations in Frankfurt. These included public libraries, orphanages, hospitals, homes for the elderly and special funds allocated for the purpose of education. The Jews’ Free School in London, in particular, received extensive financial support. Educational efforts in Austria, France and Israel were also made possible through Rothschild generosity. In addition to monies put toward education, the family gave an estimated 60,000 pieces of artwork to numerous organizations. The Rothschild family expanded the creation of social housing in the cities of London and Paris, and the Rothschild Foundation was created to further these efforts.

The House of Rothschild in the 20th Century


Internal and external change – including world wars, politics and family rivalries – diminished the family fortune over the next 100 years. The Naples branch of the bank had closed in 1863 and a lack of male heirs led to the closing of the Frankfurt branch in 1901; the Vienna branch was shuttered in 1938 after the Nazis invaded Austria and Jews were endangered in the lead-up to World War II. The Vichy government in France expropriated Rothschild Bordeaux properties during the war and the Nazis confiscated millions of dollars’ worth of art, jewels and precious objects from the Austrian branch of the family (a portion of these were returned by the Austrian government in 1998). Over the years, palatial Rothschild estates were gradually donated to the British and French governments and to other organizations and universities.

By the 1970s three Rothschild banks remained: the London and Paris branches and a Swiss bank founded by Baron Edmond Adolphe de Rothschild (1926-1977). In 1982, president Francois Mitterrand’s socialist government dealt the Paris bank fatal blow, nationalizing it and renaming it Compagnie Européenne de Banque. Despite his independence – and resentment at being called “le petit Edmond” (a reference to his small stature among the generally tall Rothschilds) – Edmond came to the aid of his cousin, Baron David René de Rothschild (1942- ), who had stayed in Paris and in 1986 created Rothschild & Cie Banque. David quickly built it into France’s second largest merchant bank. In 2003, the British and French banks were united with David as chairman, and in 2008 all of the holdings were reorganized under a single company, a shareholder of Paris Orléans based in France, unifying the family businesses roughly two centuries after the five sons of Mayer Rothschild spread out across Europe.

Moving into the 21st Century


The family wealth has been divided among many descendants and heirs throughout the years. Today, Rothschild holdings span a number of industries including, financial services, real estate, mining, energy and charitable work. The family also owns more than a dozen wineries in North America, Europe, South America, South Africa and Australia.

Traditionally, the Rothschild fortune is invested in closely held corporations. Today, Rothschild corporations have continued to see success. Most family members are employed by these corporations directly or are invested in operations that generate family wealth. The remarkable success of the family has largely been due to a strong interest in cooperation, being entrepreneurs and the practice of smart business principles. The estate of Nathan Rothschild was intimately tied to the other fortunes of the family and became part of the collective wealth each Rothschild passed to the next generation. Rothschild descendants continue to finance global business operations and contribute to scholarly, humanitarian, cultural and business endeavors.

News | Tagesschau: Klimaschutz und Verkehr - "Mobilität wird teurer werden"


Eine Arbeitsgruppe soll der Bundesregierung Empfehlungen geben, wie das Klimaschutzziel 2030 erreicht wird. Ohne Härten wird es dabei wohl nicht gehen. Verkehrsminister Scheuer gerät unter Druck.

Ob Flugtaxi oder Elektroscooter - wenn es um neue Technik geht, ist Verkehrsminister Andreas Scheuer mit Begeisterung dabei. Auch beim Klimaschutz bevorzugt er technische Lösungen - die keinem weh tun.

Im Verkehrssektor ist der Klimaschutz besonders schwierig. Zwischen 1990 und 2017 sind die Treibhausgasemissionen sogar gestiegen. Bis 2030 sollen sie dennoch um 40 Prozent auf weniger als 98 Millionen Tonnen reduziert werden. Doch ohne Härten für Autofahrer, Arbeitnehmer und Staatskasse seien die Klimaziele für 2030 nicht erreichbar, mahnt Holger Lösch, Geschäftsführer des Bundesverbandes der Deutschen Industrie (BDI)...

Meine Meinung: Das was jenen die sich wirklich ernsthaft damit beschäftigt haben schon lange klar wird, drängt nun immer heftiger auch in die Öffentlichkeit die über Jahrzehnte die Augen vor den Tatsachen verschlossen hat. Und da hilft auch alles schöne Reden von Politikern die über lange Zeit im Sinne der Autoindustrie agiert und die Probleme und ihre Folgen klein geredet haben nichts mehr.

small entrepreneurs being able to pursuit their idea are essential for the creativity of an economy – established big companies are like big ships: they are pretty hard to change and adapt – so it is no “wonder” that the big US but also German car manufacturers are in serious trouble over the lack of allowed creativity.

Apple, Google all these companies started out in garage size – provided the funding – they were able to grow into the BigData monsters that we are both feeding and battling on a daily basis.

not only Tesla but a electric garage car company from CROATIA (!) is now – literately – overtaking Ferrari:




and they already have the successor to this “electric rocket”: The Concept S is a lighter, more powerful, more aerodynamic and track-oriented iteration of the Concept One.

The electric motors in the Concept S can generate 1,384 hp (1,032 kW), enabling the car to accelerate

from 0–100 km/h (0–62 mph) in just 2.5 seconds

and attain a top speed of 227 mph (365 km/h).

a good indicator if a economy is working or not: how happy are the self employed people


Dying of Greek companies slowed down 2013 to 2016 just to rise again in 2017.

Dying of Greek companies slowed down 2013 to 2016 just to rise again in 2017.


https://data.oecd.org/chart/5vAa
… self employment rate is and was pretty low in USA, (6.3%) compared to other countries.

It has been pretty high in Greece but is going down steadily, as it is in most countries except: United Kingdom, Netherlands and Chile.

i can only speak for Germany:
  • you really DO NOT WANT to be self employed in Germany – unless you found a massive reservoir of oil in your garden (have at least 300.000€ of cash flow a year)
  • In Germany being self employed unfortunately worsens your legal position “automatically” and causes “bureaucratic overhead” towards health insurance, tax, loans, unemployment guarantees and so on and so forth.
    • tax is complicated and high 40% on income
    • loans? what loans? if you do not want to gamble with your home as security
    • as employee you do not risk your home, as self employed you do
  • not even Dentists want to be self employed anymore:
    • most people, prefer being without job, than starting a company
    • even nowadays fresh from university Dentists (one of the (still) best paid self-employed healthcare jobs in Germany) prefer to become employees in a big dental practice, instead of taking on the risk of a huge loan (0.5million€ at least) to start their own dental practice.
If the state / the EU is not propping up legal position / privileges and simplifies the tax and loan laws for entrepreneurs, it is not hard to predict, that self-employment-rates will continue down.

One proposal would be:
  • if you want an more innovative economy, if you are creative and believe in an idea you have and want to start your own company and maybe create jobs:
    • send in your concept and how much money you need to “the EU” (whoever feels responsible there)
    • if they like your concept they should provide you with a 0% loan over 30 years pay back when you want, no real estate securities needed
    • first 3 years you do not pay taxes at all
… then you can “find out” if “the market” and the economic conditions the market is in right now (not the best shape) accepts your business idea – or not – without risking anything.

Not exactly what you would like to see from a banker’s perspective:
  • if nobody is taking loans
  • if no bank is providing loans with conditions interesting to people
You can call it a crisis.

Copying bad US-ideas, that already have proven wrong:

looming doom – Germany now allows more privatization of it’s healthcare


Lobby driven politicians changed 3 words in a law – now Saudi Arabia can buy German hospitals and privatize them for maximum profit – nobody can compete with players with this much of cash.

Not exactly what you want for a healthcare system – it is NO NEWS that privatization of healthcare worsens healthcare in quality and increases it’s costs. (the exact opposite is propagated by lobbyists).

But who cares – surely not our politicians who play dumb and stupid.

If you do not believe me, please study the case “health care system USA vs Canada” as an example.

centralized vs decentralized

if a centralized society approach is not serving the interest / to the benefit of people – they – the people have every right to become decentralized / independent – generate their own food security money energy laws.

because the responsibility they have given away ( to Washington, Brussels, Berlin, London) was abused.

as democracies have grown bigger (in population, in size, Greece (where democracy was invented) are now only 10Mio people) – as power was more concentrated (fascism = fascio = concentration of power) – democracies have grown more corrupt and more fascist.

a rough overview of corruption in the EU


With an “pretty obvious to spot” phone call bribery scam Rupert Murdoch (Fox News) was able to “buy” 5% of EU politicians.
“I once asked Rupert Murdoch why he was so opposed to the European Union. ‘That’s easy,’ he replied. ‘When I go into Downing Street (London/England) they do what I say; when I go to Brussels they take no notice.’” (src)

if he would have done it a little more clever – maybe he could have been able to buy 10%.

this is 10% too much.

and all politicians involved had to step down.

kongo civil war around resources - 5 million dead for mobile phones

wow.

i am glad there are such brave reporters out there.

Full Movie 🙂




many lost their lives in Afghanistan… Pakistan and other places of this horrible world.

just to bring the rest of the “civilized” world the terrible truth.

this needs to change.

sustainability is a must.


in all sectors of our lives.

even if it means – no Mercedes Benz no more. (not the way they are today, the concept is 100 years old! (coal-steam-engine, oil-engine, (we are here) gas-engine, hydrogen-engine (this is where should have been 30 years ago! but the corrupt-money-system prevents it.) )



Full Movie Backup Link:



maybe we should do it like Putin:

… who has no mobile phone at all.

Wie kann man ein Wirtschaftssystem verändern?


#Neoliberalismus und #Kapitalismus sind längst nur noch Schimpfwörter, bis tief in etablierte bürgerliche Kreise hinein. Dennoch macht die Politik so weiter wie bisher, als ob es kein Morgen gäbe.

Doch wie kann man so ein Wirtschaftssystem überhaupt ändern, ohne dass die Wirtschaft einfach kollabiert? Den Unternehmern die Produktionsmittel wegnehmen, das wird nichts, so viel haben wir aus der Vergangenheit gelernt.

Entscheidend ist stattdessen, wie wirtschaftlicher Erfolg gemessen wird. Und abhängig davon, wer Gewinner und Verlierer ist, wer steuerlich begünstigt und wer zur Kasse gebeten wird. Im Kapitalismus gibt es nur quantitativen wirtschaftlichen Erfolg: Gewinne und Dividenden auf betriebswirtschaftlicher Ebene, und Bruttoinlandsprodukt auf volkswirtschaftlicher Ebene. Eine entscheidende Änderung wäre, Qualität statt Quantität zu messen, wobei Qualität als "den Wohlstand aller fördernd und umweltverträglich" definiert wird. Mit einem Kriterienkatalog und einem Punktesystem jenseits der Geldflüsse und Warenströme. Das gibt es bereits, und es nennt sich #Gemeinwohlökonomie.
