Globalization Is the Contagion: On the Idiocy of Interdependency

Kent Welton, Op-Ed News: "Were there no European union there would be no Greek crisis beyond Greece, Greece would have retained its currency and paid its price for budget problems in the value of its currency. But the stitching together of so many diverse countries and cultures into one unit, with one currency, has presented far more problems than it has solved and, worse, has removed national and cultural liberty, sovereignty, as well as necessary freedom for tariff-based re-balancing mechanisms."

Euro-Bankers Demand of Greece

The wealthy won't pay their taxes, so labor must do so.

By Michael Hudson

Financial lobbyists are using the Greek crisis as an object lesson to warn about the need to cut back public spending on Social Security and Medicare.

"The People of Greece Are Fighting for the Whole of Europe"

By Tariq Ali and Mark Weisbrot

'People are asking, in Greece and elsewhere, "How come we are being victimized? All the cuts in public spending affect us; they don't affect the rich. And why are the bankers not being punished? Well, why is this system, the system created by neoliberalism, of deregulation, of actually legalizing financial speculation, why is this not being stopped?"

Die Kleinen für die Großen bluten lassen

"Hemmungsloser geht es nicht", so die stellvertretende Vorsitzende der Partei DIE LINKE, Sahra Wagenknecht, zum Vorschlag von DIW-Präsident Zimmermann, die Mehrwertsteuer von 19 auf 25 Prozent heraufzusetzen. Sie erklärt weiter:

Die Milliarden, die zur Rettung der Banken und Vermögenden eingesetzt werden, sollen den kleinen Leuten aufgebrummt werden. Wie die wirtschaftliche Erholung erreicht werden soll, wenn man die Binnennachfrage weiter abwürgt, bleibt das Geheimnis von Herrn Zimmermann. Und die sozialen Auswirkungen einer Erhöhung des Mehrwertsteuersatzes um ein Drittel des bisherigen Satzes spielen in seinen Überlegungen ohnehin keine Rolle. Offenbar wünscht sich Herr Zimmermann auch in diesem Land Proteste wie in Griechenland. Es ist blanker Zynismus, nach der Privatisierungspolitik und dem Sozialabbau der vergangenen Jahre nun diejenigen die Haushaltslöcher stopfen lassen zu wollen, die ohnehin bereits die Opfer der Politik sind. Nicht die Mehrwertsteuerschraube darf weiter gedreht werden, sondern es gilt, endlich die Profiteure zur Kasse zu bitten. Anstatt mit dem sozialen Frieden zu spielen, sollte Herr Zimmermann sich für die Einführung der Millionärsteuer, die Finanztransaktionssteuer und die Bekämpfung der Spekulation einsetzen.

Sozial-ökologische Regulierung statt Sparpolitik und Steuersenkungen

„Nur durch eine kurzfristige Abkehr der Wirtschaftspolitik von einer reinen neoliberalen Marktorientierung konnten in Deutschland die Folgen der internationalen Krise abgemildert werden. Die Krisenursachen einer in der Vergangenheit vollzogenen massiven Umverteilung von unten nach oben werden allerdings bis heute weder problematisiert noch sollen sie in Zukunft beseitigt werden - im Gegenteil, die Umverteilungsprofiteure wollen an der verhängnisvollen neoliberalen Wirtschaftspolitik festhalten. Die Arbeitsgruppe Alternative Wirtschaftspolitik fordert dagegen ein massives und tabuloses Umdenken. Es geht um die Zukunftsfähigkeit der Gesellschaft. Notwendig ist eine gerechtete Verteilung des in Summe großen Reichtums in Deutschland und die Redefinition einer aktiven Rolle des Staates. Die zur Krisenbewältigung eingesetzten finanziellen Mittel können ihre volle Wirkung nur entfalten, wenn zugleich der soziale und ökologische Umbau des ins Wanken geratenen Systems in Angriff genommen wird...“ Memorandum 2010 (Kurzfassung) (pdf) http://www2.alternative-wirtschaftspolitik.de/uploads/memo_2010_kurzfassung.pdf

Showdown – Steuersenkungspläne lösen sich in Luft auf

"Die Ergebnisse des Arbeitskreis Steuerschätzung zeigen – es gibt keinen finanziellen Handlungsspielraum", so Axel Troost, Mitglied des Parteivorstands der LINKEN zu der heute vorgelegten Prognose. Er erklärt:

In einem letzten Showdown bäumt sich die FDP nochmals auf, muss sich letztendlich aber den aktuellen Zahlen der Steuerschätzung geschlagen geben, spätestens am Wahltag in NRW. Die Steuerschätzung gilt als Höhepunkt im ständigen Steuersenkungsstreit. Aktuell ist mit 38,9 Mrd. Euro weniger Steuereinnahmen bis 2013 zu rechnen als in der letzen Steuerschätzung angenommen. Diese Schätzung offenbart die dramatischen Entwicklungen bei den Steuereinnahmen. Die finanzielle Handlungsfähigkeit des Staates, insbesondere der Kommunen, die schon jetzt nicht mehr wissen, wie sie ihre Aufgaben erfüllen sollen, ist gefährdet. Besorgniserregend ist, dass erst im Jahr 2014 wieder mit einem Steuerniveau von 2008 zu rechnen ist. Auch aus dieser Perspektive ist ein Festhalten an den Steuersenkungsplänen ein Zeichen von Realitätsverlust. Bereits innerhalb der letzten 10 Jahre hat eine massive Steuersenkungspolitik zu starken Einbrüchen bei den Steuereinnahmen geführt, nicht aber zu Wachstum, wie es gerade auch von Seiten der schwarz-gelben Regierung gerne propagiert wird. Nicht nur bei der Mövenpick-Mehrwertsteuersenkung hat die Bundesregierung eindrucksvoll vor Augen geführt, dass sie vor allem Gutverdiener und Vermögende entlastet, wohingegen die Kosten für diese ungleiche Rechnung am Ende sozial schwächere Haushalte zu tragen haben.

The state: Who does it protect?

Center for a Stateless Society
by Darian Worden

05/04/10

Government’s typical answer to security threats is to respond with bigger bureaucracies (more people to share irresponsibility) and more repressive, stronger-looking enforcement. Organizations that exist because of, and in pursuit of, consensual association are generally more flexible, and do not waste time and cooperative potential trying to become the dominant bureaucracy in the power structure. When a bureaucratic mindset conflates the organization’s power with the safety of people it is assigned to protect, the incentive is to consolidate and expand power, not to work with people outside your tribe for mutual benefit...

Why America faces a big fat Greek bankruptcy

Root for America
by Wayne Allyn Root

05/05/10

Greece’s problem is Europe’s problem … and following closely behind, America’s problem too. We’re all Greeks now. Quite simply, Greece’s problem starts and ends with government employee unions. There are too many government employees (1 in 3 Greek citizens works for government); their salaries are way too high; their bonuses can only be described as insane (2 months for each public employee); their pensions are ridiculous (retirement far too young and free healthcare for life); and their government jobs are guaranteed for life. Sounds crazy, right? Sounds like in Greece the inmates must be running the asylum. Except America has the exact same problem...

Terrorism and America’s “way of life”

Future of Freedom Foundation

In a press conference yesterday about Faisal Shahzad, the Pakistani-American who allegedly tried to blow up the car bomb in Times Square, Attorney General Eric Holder stated, ‘The reality that there is a constant threat from those who wish to do us harm simply because of our way of life.’ We haven’t yet heard any public statements from Shahzad himself.

Glenn Beck gets it right

The Nation
by Robert Scheer

05/05/10

The Times Square car bomb, while certainly capable of inflicting death on scores of innocents and destroying nearby structures, hardly qualifies for WMD designation and indeed would seem to mock our highly warranted concern over such threats. The case is also a reminder that the massive defense budgets for high-tech warfare that have pushed close to a trillion dollars a year since the 9/11 attack are beside the point in countering terrorists who turn firecrackers into bombs. This man was caught because of old-fashioned police work, after officers were alerted initially by a vigilant Times Square T-shirt peddler. And while some Republican politicians, led by Sen. John McCain, attempted to turn this into an occasion for attacking civil liberties and stoking the Miranda rights debate, it is clear that the investigation moved forward in an extremely effective and expeditious manner with full regard for constitutional protections. Credit Glenn Beck of Fox News for breaking with that sort of demagoguery and asserting that the rule of law is basic to our freedom and not just an inconvenient indulgence...

Lessons From the Past: Arizona, Immigration and Ethnic Studies

Derek Chang, Truthout: "In a little less than two weeks, my son's fourth-grade class will visit a historic site called the Eight Square Schoolhouse in Dryden, New York. Designed by a local carpenter and built in 1827, it is the only octagonal schoolhouse still standing in New York State. It was used as a school for some 114 years, and the building's significance, I'm told, lies in its shape. Octagonal buildings were thought to be sturdier, possess better ventilation, provide more interior space and allow for the teacher to be the focus of the students' attention to a greater degree."

Powerless in Arizona

The American Prospect
by Gabriel Arana

05/13/10

The story of Hispanics’ political powerlessness in Arizona is partly a story about big demographic trends. Since the 1990s, the state has seen an influx of two groups: white Midwesterners and undocumented workers from Mexico. The swell of Midwestern retirees and families to the Phoenix area follows a pattern of migration from post-industrial cities in the middle of the country to the Sun Belt, where the cost of living is lower and economic opportunities more fruitful. In addition, according to the Department of Homeland Security, the rate of illegal immigration to the state jumped 70 percent between 2000 and 2008. Experts say the influx of the two groups has led to a cultural clash and strengthened the conservative base in Maricopa County, which dominates state politics...

Disorganization at Banks Causing Mistaken Foreclosures

Paul Kiel, ProPublica: "Millions of homeowners face losing their homes in the continuing foreclosure crisis, but homeowners often have more than the struggling economy and slumping house prices to worry about: Disorganization within the big banks that service mortgages has made a bad problem worse."

By Mike Whitney

"The U.S. government's massive share of the nation's mortgage market grew even larger during the first quarter. Government-related entities backed 96.5% of all home loans during the first quarter, up from 90% in 2009, according to Inside Mortgage Finance.

Rep. Bob Ney After Prison: "Money Is the Problem"

Video

Laura Flanders, GRITtv: "Get the money out of Washington. It's an ongoing refrain now, from the left and even from those in the Tea Party movement. Too much corruption, too little trust. Jack Abramoff, the superstar lobbyist whose spectacular fall brought down then-Majority Leader Tom DeLay, was the very public face of the problem of lobbying when he headed off to jail, and he is the subject of Alex Gibney's newest documentary, 'Casino Jack and the United States of Money.'"

Wall Street's Big Banks Are the Problem

Robert Reich, Robert Reich's Blog: "Why is the Federal Trade Commission threatening Apple with a possible lawsuit for abusing its economic power, but not even raising an eyebrow about the huge and growing economic (and political) muscle of JP Morgan Chase or any of the other four remaining giant banks on Wall Street?"
