Economic Ethics After the Crisis - by Peter Ulrich
Peter Ulrich is an emeritus professor of Economic Ethics at the University of St. Gallen, Switzerland and author of Integrative Economic Ethics (2008). The economy should be embedded in society; society should not be embedded in the economy. The myth of the invisible hand, the self-correcting or self-healing market, is based on the notion that fulfilling private interests brings the public good. Neoliberal myths must be unmasked and the economy restrained from environmental destruction, expo...

Creative Destruction - by Rudolf Hickel
The exodus from the casino capitalism producing ever faster and ever deeper crises cannot succeed without a broad and powerful democratic base. Parliamentary democracy is urged to finally take up the struggle around the primacy of politics against the financial markets. Financial markets have nothing to do with the idylle of market competition. Dethroning the financial markets means reducing the speculation businesses. Speculation shopping represents 80% of the world economy while their busin...

Financial Mafia - How Banks and Bandits Endanger our Democracy - by Wolfgang Hetzer and Wolfgang Lieb
Political failure follows market failure. Participation in system criminality is without risk of prosecution. The financial crisis is not only a system failure. It was caused by human actions in the banking sector that are objectively punishable. State authorities helped in a grossly negligent way.

The State Should Rescue the Market Economy - by Markus Mugglin
A balance recession is more than a temporary slump of the economy. During a balance recession, private economic actors try to reduce their debts. Debts are minimized instead of businesses taking credits to finance production and maximize profits. The cheap money seeps out on the financial markets. The labor market does not function like other markets. Falling wages did not lead to more employment - as claimed for decades.

Local Fights Against Austerity Are Growing Across the U.S. - by Mark Vorpahl
Between sequestration, with its damaging impact on workers and the entire economy, and the billions of dollars in cuts to Social Security, Medicare and other necessary social programs that President Obama is pushing, it is evident that the economic policies of both major parties are not intended to promote a recovery for working people. You cannot lift up a nation’s economy while slashing away at its consumers’ pocketbooks. In order to justify their defiance of this elementary law, both R...

Who Owns the World? - by Wolfgang Schleyer
Most states are so indebted today that their politics are determined more by creditors than citizens. Why can't democracies deal with money? Can we be waiting for the world to join our worldview although adapting our worldview to the world would be more visionary. A minority can routinely enforce its will against the rules of the market economy. Elites are those whose sociology no one dares write, Hans-Jurgen Krysmanski explains.

Society of the Few - by Hans-Peter Gensicher
Public opinion tries to get persons going downhill to believe there are chances for everyone. They only need to exert themselves and seize these chances. The leftist variant is that international capitalism must be forced to give all people these chances. With such mottos, one only promotes the self-doubt and despair of the dependent and hinders them from seeing their situation.
