Imperium EU

tredition


Since the end of World War II, the European Union has been a joint creation of the victorious USA and Western European corporations, banks and newly founded Christian, then also conservative, liberal and increasingly also social democratic parties. The institutional consolidation since the preliminary stages in the 1950s was characterized by the military and economic dual character: first by NATO and the Marshall Plan, later by the parallel "eastward expansion" of NATO and membership in the EU. The ever-expanding capital bureaucracy in the founding states of Luxembourg and Belgium (Commission, Parliament, judiciary, agencies, NATO headquarters) promotes private capitalist interests through privatization, subsidies, directives, court rulings, international treaties. Labor rights are deeply below the standard of Universal Human Rights and the International Labor Organization ILO. In particular, collective labor rights such as for unions and employee representation are not promoted. Thus, not only the EU member states, but also associated and candidate states have become a vast resource for low-wage labor for Western subcontracting services (automotive, pharmaceutical, retail, digital services) and growing, often illegal, migrant labor (truck drivers, construction workers, doctors, nurses, home care, prostitution, seasonal agricultural labor). What is covered up in the leading media: In all 28 EU states (also England before Brexit) and associated states many spontaneous as well as organized defensive struggles are taking place: For the first time in this book they are presented with examples from 12 states.

Les Capitalistes du XXIème siècle

tredition


La «crise corona» a accéléré la montée en puissance des nouveaux gestionnaires financiers comme BlackRock, Vanguard, State Street et KKR. Depuis une décennie ils sont les propriétaires dominants des banques et des grandes entreprises, aux États-Unis aussi bien qu’en Allemagne, Angleterre, Espagne, la Suisse et en France y compris les entreprises numériques comme Amazon, Google, Facebook, Microsoft et Apple. BlackRock & al. sont aussi les propriétaires des entreprises dominantes de pétrole, charbon, armement, agrobusiness, ils coopèrent avec les services secrets états-uniens, promeuvent des conditions de travail précaires et aussi l’évasion fiscale de leurs clients super riches. BlackRock & al. font partie de «America first» – Trump, Johnson, Macron, Merkel, Netanjahu sont leur personnel politique préféré. Ils exploitent la crise multiple «corona» dont ils sont responsables: crises de santé publique, de l’économie, des partis politiques longtemps gouvernants, des média. BlackRock en tant que conseiller des banques centrales aux États-Unis et dans l’Union Européenne a contribué à la financialisation au lieu d’innovations et réformes nécessaires – et joue au sauveur avec les programmes d’aide économique «corona»: cet immense endettement des états sera à la charge des populations majoritaires. Rügemer analyse aussi le conflit latent entre les États-Unis et l’Europe et présente le capitalisme alternatif sous domination communiste dans la République Populaire de la Chine: accroissement persévérant des salaires, santé et éducation gratuites et sécurité sociale, innovations technologiques, investissement dans les pays économiquement les plus avancés aussi bien que le succès transcontinentale le la Nouvelle Route de Soie – globalisation inclusive sans accompagnement militaire.

The Capitalists of the 21st Century

tredition


For the first time Ruegemer presents a typology of the new financial players who became dominant since the deregulation and the last financial crisis. Large capital organizers, private equity funds, hedgefonds, venture capital investors and private investment banks became much more influential as the traditional banks. These new financial players organize worldwide selling, buying and restructuring banks, companies and public enterprises. They exercise no responsibility against the national economic situation. Influencing governments and international financial institutions they lower the labour incomes and increase the part of private gains, also by using financial havens. They act in collaboration with law firms, rating and PR agencies, management consultants, chartered accountants and central banks.

Ruegemer outlines the relations between the European Union and the USA concerning transatlantic capital, military and secret service interlocking and the open also as the latent conflicts.

The book shows also the other way of capitalism under state directory in the People's Republic of China: How the imported capitalism from the USA, Japan, Taiwan and western Europe is in the process of transformation. So the incomes of all classes and also especially the labour incomes are continually rising. China is shown with his alternative way of globalisation which is not accompanied by military expansion.

Finally the book asks about the way of the human society if it follows the international law of the UNO and the human rights including social and labour rights.
