The Rebirth of the One-Thousandth Society - by Matthias Schnetzer and Markus Marterbauer
The richest thousandth (0.1%) increased their share in the total wealth very intensely since the 1980s. Their share is as much as the bottom 90%. While the millionaires increased their wealth enormously, the mass of the population is exposed to the continuing economic crisis. The disinformation campaigns of owners of capital against a sensible taxation of mammoth assets has the wide support of the media. Discussion about a recovery of taxes on the wealthy suffers in the illusion of shock and...

Volcanology on sabotage and accuracy - by A volcano group
In Germany, there have been some attacks on infrastructure: mobility, transport and distribution logistics and communication systems. We are fans of such acts of infrastructure sabotage ourselves and we would like to open a discussion, not least because there is some critique regarding accuracy of such actions and explaining them to the public. We want to start with an example: In the summer of 2014, refugees in Berlin squatted a roof of a hotel in order to put pressure on German authorities...

Economics is Onesided and Reactionary - by Conrad Schuhler and Rudolf Hickel
The homo oeconomicus cannot be our hope and is not desirable or future friendly. The economic benefits for the capitalist entrepreneur are in contradiction to nature and to the person. We do not need a homo oeconomicus but an economic actor for whom the human factor and not economic advantage is most important in his/her economic actions... We face completely oversized financial markets today that have uncoupled from the real economy creating value. In 2010 the volume of financial transacti...

For a Different Economics - by Jacob Hafele and Benedict Weihmayr
Economists are criticized everywhere for their onesidedness, their focus on markets and their inability to deal with the burning problems... From the neoclassical assumptions that "more is better" or markets lead to efficient distribution, a perspective on the world results that sets efficiency above justice and maximization of profits above protection of the environment...The focus on the market and efficiency dominates the discipline.

Victory of the Economy over Democracy and the Constitutional State - by Martin Kutscha
The person exists as an end-in-him/herself and not merely as a means... On the other hand, the principle of the worldwide market economy is based on treating persons and their needs as means to the end of profit realization... The faith in the self-healing powers of the market has greatly lost persuasiveness... The progressive ideas of the Enlightenment were buried alive. Still we can go back to them as a starting point.
