Staatsverschuldung als Problem der Generationengerechtigkeit | Lars P. Feld | SWR Tele-Akademie - YouTube
henry paulson and tim geithner said they are in a moral hazard. put it the way to either nationalise (aka the end of American Dream, Failure part of capitalism) or bailout (gov loans and co like TARP). Rather the moral hazard was to either put current and future unborn generation in debt servitude they had nothing to do with and keep criminals private with all its benefits. Or really give a warning shot a privatise banks and end the profligacy of crony capitalism and Wall Streets shareholder value creation only and profit maximisation - without consequences. // and Europe looks towards USA and did the same; made banks whole again (because they were really - TBTF - and would pushed some EU countries into Great Depression/Insolvency. especially France & Belgium where bank liabilities were too big for public balance sheet) and took some of the debt onto its public balance sheet (and gave bailout loans) to be served by current & future unborn generation.

Germany won’t spare Greek pain – it has an interest in breaking us | Yanis Varoufakis | Comment is free | The Guardian
Debt restructuring has always been our aim in negotiations – but for some eurozone leaders Grexit is the goal [...] To frame the cynical transfer of irretrievable private losses on to the shoulders of taxpayers as an exercise in “tough love”, record austerity was imposed on Greece, whose national income, in turn – from which new and old debts had to be repaid – diminished by more than a quarter. It takes the mathematical expertise of a smart eight-year-old to know that this process could not end well. [...] In my first week as minister for finance I was visited by Jeroen Dijsselbloem, president of the Eurogroup (the eurozone finance ministers), who put a stark choice to me: accept the bailout’s “logic” and drop any demands for debt restructuring or your loan agreement will “crash” – the unsaid repercussion being that Greece’s banks would be boarded up. [...] Wolfgang Schäuble, decided that Grexit’s costs were a worthwhile “investment” as a way of disciplining France et al,

IMF Slams Germany, Says Greece "Needs Debt Restructuring" | Zero Hedge
on the ticker. IMF'S LAGARDE SAYS DEBT RESTRUCTURING NEEDED IN GREECE. IMF'S LAGARDE SAYS FUND REMAINS 'FULLY ENGAGED' WITH GREECE. IMF'S LAGARDE SAYS IMF CANNOT GIVE GREECE SPECIAL TREATMENT // Earlier today, confirming that Germany sternly refuses to change its tune about a Greek debt haircut or even a debt "reprofiling" of Greece and would not budge an inch on Tsipras tacit request for at least some debt leeway, we reported that "the German government does not see any reason to grant Greece either a classic debt haircut or any other measures that would slash the value of money on loan to the crisis-ridden country, a spokesman for the finance ministry said on Wednesday." // IMF has admitted it was wrong to advocate for austerity, now IMF admits it was wrong to hope that its approach (together with Troika) would help Greece. // an economic model is an economic model, not the real world and especially not able to predict the future. // "Alternativlos."

Where next? - YouTube
2:50 >> no income growth (average hourly earnings), despite being now for 1-2 quarters at employment rate pre-recession. Q is! is the flat income growth (average hourly earnings) a symptom that job creation took only place in Service Sector Jobs couples with self-employment! And very very little in comparison in manufacturing, R&D and other high value add jobs. Or is it because of Lohnzurueckhaltung? And there is still slack in the economy, while BOE doesn't think so for 2015 and expects incomes/pay increases to be noticeable in 2015.

Economists Aren’t As Nonpartisan As We Think | FiveThirtyEight
To test if ideology influences policy, e.g. taxes or deficits, we collected numerical research results from fields that have direct impacts on public policy,7 including government spending, minimum wages, various tax rates, and income mobility. The results from these fields map quite nicely onto the liberal-conservative ideological spectrum. For example, liberals think the fiscal multiplier is high, meaning the government can improve economic growth by increasing spending, while conservatives believe the multiplier is close to zero or negative. A similar logic applies to numerical results in the other fields.

Thomas Piketty's 'Capital' in 3 minutes - Newsnight - YouTube
who owns the economies assets, the ~1% individuals and international conglomerate corporations, - when return on these assets /y is greater than economic growth - inequality rises. it is all that happend even during the recovery after the GFC - 1% got richer, conglomerates and corporations got richer/sat on their cashpiles. while ie in USA Food Stamp handouts rose month over month _+++ http://www.democracyjournal.org/32/the-inequality-puzzle.php?page=all ""Piketty’s treatment of inequality is perfectly matched to its moment. [...] the share of income and wealth going to those at the very top—the top 1 percent, .1 percent, and .01 percent of the population—has risen sharply over the last generation, marking a return to a pattern that prevailed before World War I. There can now be no doubt that the phenomenon of inequality is not dominantly about the inadequacy of the skills of lagging workers."" --- +++ http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gilded_Age

We need to keep the stakes and garlic handy - Telegraph
The collapse in aggregate demand is putting sharp downward pressure on pay inflation. There have already been some cases where the workforce has agreed to significant wage cuts to preserve their jobs. The last time such a major change in the climate governing pay happened in the UK was in the early 1990s. Pay inflation came down sharply from 8pc-10pc to 3pc-4pc, where it has remained ever since – until now. To get into mild deflationary territory, pay does not have to fall; it merely needs to rise by less than the rate of productivity growth, with the result that unit labour costs fall. Once you reach that point you have the precondition for deflation, without any help from lower commodity prices or squeezed profit margins.

In most of the developed West, the underlying growth rate of productivity is about 2pc. Accordingly, if the average rate of pay increase falls below 2pc, the conditions will be in place for sustained deflation.

Global Worker Surge Was Behind Recession - Real Time Economics - WSJ
A new paper published by the National Bureau of Economic Research, by Ravi
Jagannathan, Mudit Kapoor and Ernst Schaumburg, argues imbalances caused by a jump in the world’s labor force are the key reason for the global recession.

“The large increase in the developed world’s labor supply, triggered by geo-political events and technological innovations, is the major underlying cause of the global macro economic imbalances that led to the great recession,” the paper said. “The inability of existing institutions in the U.S. and the rest of the world to cope with this shock set the stage for the great recession.”
.
As workers from developing nations moved to compete on the economic stage, the money they made and the world’s inability to absorb that new wealth helped fuel the crisis.
.
The paper’s authors warn that attempts to reform banking oversight and the downsides of ample liquidity won’t fix the real problem facing the global economy.
