Memorandum 2015 by the Alternative Economic Policy study group in Bremen, Germany
For 40 years, the Alternative Economic Policy study group has published memorandums. The council of experts promoted the profits of businesses, not aggregate economic demand. Public net investments in Germany have been negative since 2003.
While full employment was reached in the 1960s, mass unemployment in Germany surpassed the five million mark because of neoliberal structural reforms and fiscal policy favoring capital.
Europe must regain the trust of citizens instead of preparing for stagnation, unemployment and futurelessness. The ice on which the neoliberal agenda moves has become thinner.

Redistributing Income, Work and Power: Alternatives to Serving the Upper Class
MEMORANDUM 2008 – CRISIS UNDERRATED
Without increasing internal demand, the upswing based on replacement-investments and exports cannot continue. Without reduced working hours, adequate jobs will not be created in a world of reduced work volumes, rationalization and information technology.
