&quot;Drop Dead Economics&quot;: The Financial Crisis in Greece and the European Union and The Oil

Michael Hudson and General Joe, 14.05.2010 18:16

"The Greek bailout should be thought of as a TARP for German and other European bankers and global currency speculators. Almost $1 trillion is being provided by governments (mainly Germany, at the cost of its own domestic spending) into a kind of escrow account for the Greek government to pay foreign bondholders who bought up these securities at plunging prices over the past few weeks. They will make a killing, as will buyers of hundreds of billions of dollars of credit-default swaps on the Greek government bonds, speculators in euro-swaps and other casino-capitalist gamblers. (Parties on the losing side of these swaps now will need to be bailed out as well, and so on ad infinitum.)
This windfall is to be paid by taxpayers ­ ultimately those of Greece (in effect labor, because the wealthy have been untaxed) ­ to reimburse Euro-governments, the IMF and even the U.S. Treasury for its commitment to predatory finance. The ³sanctity of debt ­ sacrificing the economy to pay bondholders ­ is to be used as an excuse to slash Greek public services, pensions and other government spending. But what is sanctity and religion, after all, without sacrifice. The question is, who is being sanctified, and to what god? In this case it seems to be Mammon, not Jesus. Self-immolation is to become a model for other countries to impose similar austerity as governments run up budget deficits in the face of economic shrinkage and falling tax collections."

"With each passing day, the scale of the disaster unleashed by the oil rig explosion in the Gulf of Mexico increases. Somewhere between 5,000 (the official estimate) and 25,000 (the estimate of some scientists) barrels of oil is surging into the Gulf every day. Before it is over, millions, if not tens of millions of gallons of oil will be washed up on America’s wetlands and shorelines."

&quot;Drop Dead Economics&quot;: The Financial Crisis in Greece and the European Union

Michael Hudson, 14.05.2010 05:31

"In truly Orwellian fashion, right-wingers in Europe and the United States (such as Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke) call this the “hallmark of democracy.” It actually is the stamp of oligarchy, stripping away control over the economy’s credit allocation – and hence, forward planning – while giving high finance a stranglehold over public spending programs.

Iceland, Latvia and now Greece are the opening shots in the resulting global campaign to roll back the great democratic reform program of the 19th century and the Progressive Era: taxation of land and the “unearned increment” of price gains for real estate, stocks and bonds, and subordination of the financial sector to the needs of economic growth under democratic direction. This doctrine was still being followed by the post-1945 era of progressive taxation that saw the 20th century’s greatest rise in living standards and economic growth. But most countries have reversed the fiscal trend since 1980.Tax collectors have “freed” income from public obligation only to see it pledged to banks for higher loans to bid up property prices."

GRIECHENLAND: Aufstand der Hunde?

Raphael Winters, 13.05.2010 17:39

Aufstand der Hunde ? Inmitten von militanten Protesten gegen die Sparmaßnahmen in Griechenland machen Straßenhunde von sich reden, die stets auf Seiten der Demonstranten zu finden sind Während in Europa hitzig diskutiert wird ob mit Griechenland "erste Schafe am Ende der Euro-Herde gerissen" werden und am Ende gar der ganze Euro futsch ist, haben die von der sozialistischen Regierung angekündigten rigiden "Sparmaßnahmen" Hunderttausende auf die Straßen getrieben. Wie in Griechenland üblich sind Demonstranten nicht zimperlich: beim Marsch auf das Parlamentsgebäude skandierten Tausende "burn, burn parliament", auf der angemeldeten Demonstrationsroute wurden zahlreiche Banken und Regierungsgebäude unter anderem mit Farbbeuteln, Steinen und Molotov-Cocktails attackiert. Die Polizei beantwortet solche Angriffe regelmäßig mit Tränengas, woraufhin auch Polizisten mit Brandsätzen beworfen werden. Weil diese Szenarien absehbar sind, werden offizielle Einrichtungen und Banken am Rande angekündigter Proteste in der Regel geschlossen.
