Freital: Vom SPD-Modell zur Protest-Hochburg - SPIEGEL ONLINE
[ Symptom ] Freital steht heute für braune Hetze gegen Flüchtlinge. Dabei entstand der sächsische Ort einst als linkes Gemeinschaftsmodell in der kapitalistischen Weimarer Republik. Ein Lehrstück über die Tragödien der großen Ideologien. [...] Freital war zu einer nahezu entstrukturierten, enthistorisierten Stadt geworden. Im politisch-kulturellen Vakuum öffnete sich sodann der Raum für Kleinstadtpopulisten, die in Freital nach 1990 periodisch auftraten, kühne Versprechungen machten, dann überwiegend nach allerlei Pannen und Pleiten wieder im Nichts verschwanden, um von neuen Figuren dieser Couleur ersetzt zu werden. Und nun also geht es gegen Flüchtlinge in dieser Stadt, die doch in ihren Ursprüngen ein ganz entgegengesetztes Projekt verfolgt hatte. Was für eine Tragödie. // Book Lars Geiges, Stine Marg, Franz Walter: Pegida. Die schmutzige Seite der Zivilgesellschaft?

Robert Reich - President Obama is now selling his proposed Trans...
President Obama is now selling his proposed Trans Pacific Partnership as necessary to contain China. "Either China writes the rules of global trade or we do," he said Friday. But his trade pact is really a giveaway to American-based global corporations that initiated it and are pushing it in Congress -- and which are making and selling all over the world, and shifting profits to wherever they pay the lowest taxes (some are even morphing into foreign corporations). And those same U.S. based corporations do whatever China wants to gain access to that huge market. As an Apple executive told The New York Times, “We don’t have an obligation to solve America’s problems.”

OECD attacks 'aggressive' tech tax plans - BBC News
Technology companies need to stop "extremely aggressive" tax planning, the man charged with reforming global tax rules has told the BBC. He says these "push the boundaries of what is legal". Pascal Saint-Amans, who runs the OECD's Centre for Tax Policy, said that new standards would require companies to pay more tax in the countries where they sold goods or created revenues. He also said companies should not use tax havens to shelter their profits. / http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-32730305

Ilija Trojanow: Über den überwachten Menschen und das widerständige Wort - Literatur - derStandard.at › Kultur
Die Existenz der Massenüberwachung wird nicht mehr bestritten, wie noch vor wenigen Jahren, als nicht wenige Kritiker des Buches Angriff auf die Freiheit. Sicherheitswahn, Überwachungsstaat und der Abbau bürgerlicher Rechte von meiner Koautorin Juli Zeh und mir Übertreibung und Hysterie vorwarfen. Wir wissen, dass die NSA zwischen drei und vier Milliarden Menschen überwacht, nämlich alle digitalen Bürger und Bürgerinnen des Planeten. [...] Wir wissen, dass wir dieser Überwachung (fast) nicht entgehen können, auch nicht durch Verschlüsselung unserer Kommunikation, denn bei allen marktüblichen Programmen ist eine kleine Hintertür offen gelassen, durch die Geheimdienste hineinschlüpfen können, [...] Die demokratische Verfasstheit ist weder in Stein gemeißelt noch genetisch einprogrammiert. [...] behördlicher Vertuschung: "nationale Sicherheit" [...] demokratischen Gesellschaft angreift.

Albert Edwards: At 500% Net Liabilities To GDP, It Is Too Late To Prevent The Collapse Of The G-7; Greece Is Irrelevant, We Are All Now Insolvent | zero hedge
I am persuaded though by Richard Koo's book about the lessons from Japan's balance sheet recession. The crux of his analysis is that governments have no option but to stimulate aggressively all the while the private sector is de-leveraging. ANY attempt at fiscal cuts simply results in renewed recession and a further loss of confidence, thus making it even harder and more costly to sustain any subsequent recovery - and hence the budget deficit ends up bigger than before (e.g. see chart below). This is exactly the outcome I expect.
