"Germany benefits ..."

"Germany profits..."Whenever politics and the media run out of arguments, it's short and sweet to say,"Germany benefits..."

• from globalization,
• the free trade areas,
• the free trade agreements,
• of the EU,
• the euro,
• the cheap flood of money
• the dependence on exports,
• immigration,
• the Schengen Agreement (open borders)

With the silly propaganda slogans, trained rhetoric experts actually succeed in actually preventing the population from thinking independently and convincing successes that are not. Unless it is already considered a success if other EU countries are worse off than us. Because they suffer more from duty-free trade (wage dumping) than we do. The failure of others thus becomes the yardstick for our apparent success - such a view seems to me more than pitiful.


The fact is:
Real wages have been falling since 1980 and tripled the unemployment figures!
Whether Germany will really benefit from the arbitrary powers of its politicians (customs reduction, EU transfer union, euro) is shown above all by the development of inflation-adjusted net wages and pensions. And these figures are unambiguous: despite the benevolent technological innovations and the doubling of productivity, even in our "export wonderland" things are still only going downhill.In my opinion, the slogans "Germany profits..." can hardly be topped by cheekiness and audacity.


It is a question of preventing overdue reforms!
What is intended to be achieved by permanent national dulling ("We are doing well after all!", "Germany profits...") is obvious:
Overdue fundamental reforms should be avoided!
The global players, corporations and speculators have huge lobbying power and defend their fortunes. They are the true rulers and leaders of Western democracies.

It is therefore with great enthusiasm held fast to outdated dogmas and world economic heresies. The dismantling of customs duties, which is forcing the world into merciless wage and tax competition and is now even triggering migratory movements of peoples, is still praised, despite all the evidence to the contrary, as being beneficial and "promoting prosperity". Nothing is being done to break the omnipotence of the corporations and the breathtaking monopoly trend!


Fear of the economic competence of citizens?
The population must become more critical if it is to stop the further march of big business. Objective information and education is the appropriate means of combating the widespread united front of big business, exports, politics and the media.
The hypocritical media coverage of the supposed
shortage of skilled workers, the benefits of duty-free trade, the EU and the euro must finally be offset by the unvarnished empirical values of the last three decades! Unfair propaganda belongs to the pillory and must not be constantly prayed. So that more reason, logic and reason can be argued in politics as well.


The cumulative competence of the leading economic experts from politics and media has yielded the following results so far:

Since 1980

• real wages in Germany and most other high-wage countries have fallen by around 15%,

• in Germany, the inflation-adjusted net pensions have been reduced by about 30 %,

• the number of official unemployed in Germany has almost tripled despite all the outright successes of the bogus job market,

• the secret, hidden unemployment has reached gigantic proportions

• temporary, precarious jobs have almost become standard,

• the volume of harmful and hostile shift and night work has tripled,

• has tripled the number of environmentally harmful trucks in Germany (although living standards are falling),

• the public debt in many EU countries has almost exploded,

• It seems that the economy in the western world can only be kept up to date by a glut of cheap money.

Anyone who records all these developments as successes can be satisfied with the policy pursued to date and with the economic expertise demonstrated so far.

However, anyone who is dissatisfied with the outcome of the political decisions taken since 1980, who wonders why technological progress has not had a positive impact on prosperity since 1980, should perhaps no longer blindly trust the appeasing propaganda slogans ("we are doing well, Germany is benefiting...") and dare to take a different view of things.

The book "THE CAPITAL and globalisation" clears up many fatal prejudices. The book does not put forward bold theses, but points out the functioning of the global economy point by point. This in-depth analysis inevitably leads to the right conclusions for necessary corrections and interventions to put an end to the destructive global wage and tax dumping and return to a fair, social market economy.

Excuse me!
There is no equality of opportunity - even when it comes to forming opinions. While the capital (corporations, speculators, lobbyists, media, governments) can afford the best translators, I have to settle for a simple language program for financial reasons. I hope, however, that the text is nevertheless reasonably understandable and that no major mistakes have occurred. Thank you for your understanding.
