Is there indeed a general market saturation?

Are the old big industrial nations only growing slowly, because their sales markets are saturated?


Why have wages fallen for 30 years, why have there been relatively modest economic growth in the old industrialized countries since then? Politicians of the globalization lobby are also rarely embarrassed about this delicate question for an answer.
Regarding the weak economic growth, they argue that just for the sake of market saturation, no big jumps would be possible. Consumption needs are largely covered, automation in production is steadily increasing, and thus increasing mass unemployment is an inevitable fate.


Is consumer demand really covered?

In this comfortable view is embezzled that the general public still has unfulfilled desires. Who would not like to afford a better car or a nicer apartment, who would not rather consume organic food than nameless cheap goods?

The thesis of market saturation, I consider an absolute Schmarren! As long as new desirable products are invented, as long as the population does not indulge in pure luxury, there is no market saturation!

Therefore, the talk of saturated markets with inevitably low economic rates is nothing more than a lame excuse.
Even with ongoing automation, there must be no mass unemployment, because at the same time the demands grow and new desires arise.


Of course there is no infinite growth!

Growth limits are solely due to the scarcity of raw materials and the necessary environmental protection. But even from this arise no insoluble problems, but rather a compulsion to reason.

With a birth control, the population explosion could be contained and with the factor of working time would be to hold a sprawling consumerism in check. If production really reaches its natural limits, one would only need to shut down general working hours - in this way, it would be possible to achieve a better quality of life while maintaining prosperity.

A general reduction of working time would only be a problem - it does not work for the currently glorified global dumping competition.
Only if one eliminates this meaningless undercutting fight (for example by the revival of customs borders), shortening of working hours does not cause higher unemployment numbers.

The fact that the 35-hour week failed in France and Germany is solely due to the practiced free trade (ie the waiving of import duties). Globalization is forcing a constant reduction in costs - social standards, high environmental standards and more humane working hours are just the stuff that makes the location more expensive.


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.
