Translated From the Facebook community "Sozialdemokraten gegen den Fiskalpakt"
The autistic persons in the world capitalist Forum in Davos believe the debt crisis would be already solved. A funny assumption in the face of exploding debt figures in the European States of crisis and a worsening depression. Nothing is as much funny as total loss of reality. After all, one has recognized now that mass unemployment is a serious problem. Nothing frightens managers more are than the eventual outbreak of social unrest . Austerity and Misery Yes, but without unrest please! Even investing in the apparatus of repression is thinkable.
The right to protest, strike and demonstrate has been effectively seized in Greece and Spain follows. But that is a topic that doesn't affect the fine men and a few women in their Davos luxury suites. They keep on repeating the old mantra as a prayer: structural reforms, structural reforms, structural reforms. Only a flexible labour market could eventually provide employment. No minimum wage, no collective agreements, labor without protection against dismissal. But they forget something very essential : also entrepreneurs hire only then people, if they expect they can sell their products. And they can only sell when someone buys. This is not the case with imploding demand. The mass unemployment threat cannot of course be intimidated by the cozy lifestyle mood of Davos summit participants. They prefer to look away, but at some point the spreading misery will reach also the fine men and a few women in their luxury shelters behind the high walls of their decoupled parallel world. This of course could be then painful.
