"THE battle-lines are drawn. When the world’s big trading nations convene this week at a G20 summit in Hamburg, the stage is set for a clash between a protectionist America and a free-trading Germany."

"THE social-market economy devised in Germany after the second world war, with its careful blend of market capitalism, strong labour protection and a generous welfare state, served the country well for several decades. But it is now coming under pressure as never before. As economic growth stalls yet again, the country is being branded the sick man (or even the Japan) of Europe."

"Mein Schluss aus dem Artikel in Verbindung mit dem Datum seines Erscheinens ist, den Betreibern des schiefen, deutschen Geschaeftsmodells ist vollkommen klar, welche Folgen und Risiken es hat. Sie betreiben es trotzdem und im vollen Bewusstsein.
Aber was ist von jemandem, der so etwas ohne Not tut, zu halten?"

"Prime Minister Tony Blair has promised to work with newly-elected German Chancellor Gerhard Schroeder to extend the "Third Way" concept across a more integrated Europe.

The BBC's William Horsley: "Mr Schroeder is, in some ways, a German Mr Blair"
Writing for the German newspaper Welt Am Sonntag ahead of Mr Schr_'s first official visit to the UK on Monday, Mr Blair also said Germany had come to terms with its Nazi past and "moved on". The prime minister wrote that he and the chancellor would discuss ways to extend their shared political vision - the "Third Way" or "Neue Mitte" in German - into the mainstream of European politics.
And in a move likely to inflame the Conservatives, Mr Blair argued that Europe needed closer economic cooperation and reitierated his vision of a pan-European defence capability divorced from Nato."

"Social democrats are in government in almost all the countries of the Union. Social democracy has found new acceptance – but only because, while retaining its traditional values, it has begun in a credible way to renew its ideas and modernise its programmes. It has also found new acceptance because it stands not only for social justice but also for economic dynamism and the unleashing of creativity and innovation.
The trademark of this approach is the New Centre in Germany and the Third Way in the United Kingdom. Other social democrats choose other terms that suit their own national cultures. But though the language and the institutions may differ, the motivation is everywhere the same. Most people have long since abandoned the world view represented by the dogmas of left and right. Social democrats must be able to speak to those people."

Investors, banksters and the seneca effect

As some readers may know, I consider the findings of Fargione et. al. (1) in conjunction with our bank and money system the key to understand todays escalating economic and political problems. To under stand how our money and banking system works I recommend reading R. Werners paper (2). To understand what "Investors" and banksters really do I recommend this articel (3).
With those prerequisits and knowing the seneca effect (4) you are able to understand why the way our economies work, is leading straight into desaster.
Because this results, on the one hand, in the possibility of an initially exponential
growth on the basis of the "success formula" of continual and consistent
reinvestment of surpluses into productivity-enhancing measures and, on the
other hand, the parallel running of the Fettaugen syndrome with the constantly
advancing concentration of capital in the form of real and financial resources
in the hands of fewer and fewer people (= hierarchy and structure formation).
If we consider the attemps of the banking / money / financial and valuation
system as unsuitable attempts to solve the real problems and leave them out
in a first view and consider only these two parallel, real, empirically
demonstrable developments as characteristic, then the negative repercussions
on the development of GDP can be attributed to a constantly increasing
productivity (tendency to deflation / price decline), the concentration
of production and finance in the hands of less and less people, the exclusion
of more and more people from the production process and thus the exclusion of
the possibility of demand, and represented in a time-dependent parameter:
Which is coupled to the development of the linear increasing Theil index
in the case of  Fettaugen syndrome. Here, B is a constant which describes
the rate of the increase of the Theil index and the contracted production
problems triggered thereby. This term is thus a representation of the
resources "cohesion and social peace through participation and justice",
which is reduced by the progressive concentration of capital.
For GDP, the product results from exponentically increasing productivity and
this linearly decreasing resource.
That is, the difference between two exponential developments develops, in which
the positive term dominates at first, but with progressive time the negative
term takes over the regime.

Wenn man bedenkt das Bankster luegen

Wenn man bedenkt das der Beruf des Banksters  erfordert, dass selbige luegen, wenn sie den Mund auf machen, dann ist die folgende Aussage eine interessante Ankuendigung fuer das neue Jahr:

Achleitner schließt Bankenrettung in Deutschland aus

Quelle

Dazu passt dann noch dieser Neujahrsgruss des Nachfolgers  des kluegsten Professors Deutschlands am Ifo Institut:

https://deutsche-wirtschafts-nachrichten.de/2016/12/30/oekonom-wir-stehen-vor-massiver-entwertung-der-sparguthaben/?nlid=110e723ae8

Quelle

Auf den ersten Blick nicht ganz abgestimmt mit dem Kollegen Achleitener, aber wenn man mal verstanden hat, worum es geht, dann passt das schon zusammen.

Und der ist auch nicht schlecht (es kann einem nur schlecht davon werden;-):

https://www.welt.de/wirtschaft/article160619019/Selbst-Finanzbeamte-zweifeln-an-der-Steuergerechtigkeit.html

Wer Preis- und Lohnsetzungsmacht hat, darf fuer den Staat bei den Lohnempfaengern gleich neben dem Gewinn, die Lohnsteuer einbehalten, die Umsatzsteuer abfuehren und zum Dank damit rechnen garnicht oder nur sporadisch kontrolliert zu werden. Passt! Markt”gerechte” Demokratie. Markt = Arena in dem das Recht des Staerkeren gilt. Die Staerksten sind diejenigen, die sich ueber Strohmaenner = Bankster das Geldemissionsmonopol gesichert haben und fuer sich nutzen, um so die Welt nach ihren Vorstellungen zu formen. Selbstverstaendlich in einem “fairen” Wettbewerb. Ordoliberal, wo sich “jeder” nur nicht Alle an die Regeln halten muessen. Klasse! Wo sich Bankster reihenweise bei der Justiz in Vergleichen frei kaufen. Mit selbst geschoepftem Geld aus dem Nichts! Und keiner blickts. Ist doch ganz grosse Klasse. Oder ? Dafuer lohnt es sich doch die Knochen hin zu halten und am Hindukusch die Freiheit zur Tyrannei zu verteidigen.
Manchmal frage ich mich, wer sind die schlimmeren Terroristen? Die Finanztaliban oder das von ihnen kreierte und finanzierte “Original”.
