Le plan de privatisation rancunier de l'Europe pour la Grèce

ATHÈNES – Le 12 juillet, le sommet des dirigeants de la zone euro a dicté les termes de sa capitulation au Premier ministre grec Alexis Tsipras, qui, terrifié par les autres solutions, a tout accepté en bloc. Un de ces termes concernait la liquidation des avoirs publics restants de la Grèce.

Les dirigeants de la zone euro ont exigé que des biens publics grecs soient transférés à un fonds de type Treuhand (un véhicule de vente au rabais, similaire à celui utilisé après la chute du mur de Berlin pour privatiser rapidement, au prix d'une forte perte financière et avec des effets dévastateurs sur l'emploi, de tous des biens publics de l'État moribond de l'Allemagne de l'Est.

Ce Treuhand grec devait être basé (tenez-vous bien) au Luxembourg et devait être dirigé par un groupe supervisé par le ministre des Finances de l'Allemagne, Wolfgang Schäuble, l'auteur du plan. Il est censé effectuer l'ensemble des ventes au rabais d'ici trois ans. Mais alors que les travaux du plan Treuhand original s'accompagnaient d'investissements importants dans les infrastructures en Allemagne de l'Ouest et de transferts sociaux à grande échelle pour la population d'Allemagne de l'Est, les citoyens de la Grèce ne vont recevoir aucun avantage correspondant d'aucune sorte.

    Populist Plutocracy and the Future of America

    • In the first year of his presidency, Donald Trump has consistently sold out the blue-collar, socially conservative whites who brought him to power, while pursuing policies to enrich his fellow plutocrats. 

    • Sooner or later, Trump's core supporters will wake up to this fact, so it is worth asking how far he might go to keep them on his side.

    The Man Who Didn’t Save the World

    A Saudi prince has been revealed to be the buyer of Leonardo da Vinci's "Salvator Mundi," for which he spent $450.3 million. Had he given the money to the poor, as the subject of the painting instructed another rich man, he could have restored eyesight to nine million people, or enabled 13 million families to grow 50% more food.

    Two Myths About Automation

    While many people believe that technological progress and job destruction are accelerating dramatically, there is no evidence of either trend. In reality, total factor productivity, the best summary measure of the pace of technical change, has been stagnating since 2005 in the US and across the advanced-country world.

    The Hungarian Government’s Failed Campaign of Lies

    The Hungarian government has released the results of its "national consultation" on what it calls the "Soros Plan" to flood the country with Muslim migrants and refugees. But no such plan exists, only a taxpayer-funded propaganda campaign to help a corrupt administration deflect attention from its failure to fulfill Hungarians’ aspirations.
