Donald Trump, Marine Le Pen: Wie Wirtschaftskrisen Populisten helfen - Kolumne - SPIEGEL ONLINE
All das passt zu Zahlen, wonach - auch in Deutschland - eine große Minderheit seit Jahrzehnten real an Einkommen verliert. Und der Abstand zwischen Gewinnern und Verlierern atemberaubend groß geworden ist. Und es passt zum verbreiteten Gefühl, dass nur noch schwer nachzuvollziehen ist, welche Macht Konzerne ausüben. Und wie wenig die Regierungen dem noch entgegenzusetzen haben. [...] All das lässt sich nicht mit ein bisschen mehr Konjunktur beseitigen. Wie der französische Ökonom Thomas Piketty diagnostiziert hat, gibt es eine fast automatische Verschärfung der Ungleichheit - schon weil mit großem Geld mehr zu verdienen ist als mit harter Arbeit.

Martin Schulz: Mehrheit hält den SPD-Kanzlerkandidaten für unglaubwürdig - SPIEGEL ONLINE
Was!? Man glaubt Politikern ihre Wahlversprechen vom Herzen und mit Emotionen nicht? // Die Mehrheit nimmt Schulz auch nicht seine Ankündigung ab, sich besonders für "hart arbeitende Menschen" einzusetzen. 57 Prozent halten das für "unglaubwürdig", 36 Prozent für "glaubwürdig". //&! Labour’s collapse among working-class voters is catastrophic – according to YouGov, only 16% would vote Labour now.

The Guardian view on the UK labour market: farewell, Lithuanian car valets | Editorial | Opinion | The Guardian
Of course, pay was not the only reason that migrant workers came to be so resented. Queues for doctors’ appointments and overcrowded classrooms were easier to see than differences in pay, and they played a bigger part in fuelling resentment. Yet in the same way that migration concealed structural change in wages, its impact on public services served as a distraction from the real cost of the austerity measures brought in by the coalition government in 2010.

Up to 70% of people in developed countries 'have seen incomes stagnate' | Business | The Guardian
Research by the McKinsey Global Institute found that between 65% and 70% of people in 25 advanced countries saw no increase in their earnings between 2005 and 2014. The report found there had been a dramatic increase in the number of households affected by flat or falling incomes and that today’s younger generation was at risk of ending up poorer than their parents. Only 2% of households, 10 million people, lived through the period from 1993 to 2005 – a time of strong growth and falling unemployment – without seeing their incomes rise.

After the EU Referendum: What Next for Britain and Europe? - YouTube
why England voted leave, why did the Project Fear not work? >> "inequality, identity, and immigration." [...] cultural divide (ie the passport statistic - more or less cosmopolitan, plays also into identity), educational divide (higher attainment higher remain votes), and to some smaller parts economic divide [...] and the AGE DIVIDE! [...] median income divide (low median income = leave vote) [...] 'Poorest voted to leave as life can't get any harder. And punch the toffs in the face. The only chance you've got.' [...] net immigration 300k low skilled, the sized of Newcastle = pressure on schools and services (longer queues). + AUSTERITY + secular stagnation + no wage increase + cost of living increase = DISASTER. low skilled England had to compete with low skilled EEA immigrants.

How the Brexit vote unleashed a mutiny against the old order | Politics | The Guardian
But the revolution that had delivered Brexit, driven in large part by white working-class votes, was sweeping all before it in the most unpredictable way – careers and ambitions, along with what had seemed the safest of assumptions. The aftershocks of the referendum were wreaking havoc with the old system. //&! How bad can Brexit be if it has made bankers think about inequality? [...] Bank of America Merrill Lynch (BAML) immediately called Brexit the “biggest electoral riposte yet to [the] age of inequality”. Investment group Pimco, which manages $1.5 trillion of bonds, warned clients about the “battle against inequality”. Meanwhile French giant Axa (with €666bn under its belt) concluded: “UK voters have taken their frustrations about income inequality out on the EU.” - http://bit.ly/29gYh3T //&! decades long neglect from Westminster, Whitehall, No Representation - bit.ly/29lZVDn & bit.ly/29ey7jL

A warning to Gove and Johnson - we won’t forget what you did | Jonathan Freedland | Opinion | The Guardian
He didn’t believe a word of his own rhetoric, we know that now. His face last Friday morning, ashen with the terror of victory, proved it. That hot mess of a column he served up on Monday confirmed it again: he was trying to back out of the very decision he’d persuaded the country to make. And let’s not be coy: persuade it, he did. Imagine the Leave campaign without him. Gove, Nigel Farage and Gisela Stuart: they couldn’t have done it without the star power of Boris.
