Memorandum 2017: Alternatives for a Solidarity Europe: Instead of “Germany First”
The European Union is at a crossroads. The reason lies in the neoliberal redistribution policy favoring capital incomes for many years. “Mass unemployment intensified and was not ended in Europe. Millions of those with work are in precarious working conditions.” The poverty rates increase and the pension systems are not secure anymore.
The rich continue to commit fraud on the capital markets as though a financial- and banking crisis never happened. Now the governing political class in Europe appears astonished about the growth of rightwing-populist and rightwing extremist parties that threaten the existence of the EU.
