- Already in the seventies the "Club of Rome" has indeed predicted what is happening now.
- Capitalism exploits unrestrained the resources of our planet and its people,
- it deprives us of our own livelihood.
- You don't have to be a Marxist to understand this.
- You finally need to take capitalism seriously once and for all.
- Capitalism is indeed our new religion, basically it is our surrogate religion.
- We have lost faith in everything, but we still believe in the free market economy.
- And because capitalism became a religion, you shall not speak out against it.
- If you yould dare to argue with that, it would be blasphemy and you a heretic and a crank.
- The gods we worship in capitalism are growth and productivity.
- These are our gods, employment thorugh growth, the mantra of our politicians.
- Employment, it is only through growth.
- There must be more and more, more and more,
- this makes the people happy and satisfied.
- More and more, always more.
- Since over 25 years, we have the situation that we produce more stuff then we consume.
- We throw away one third of all the foot that we produce,
- we throw away one third of all the medicine which is prescribed,
- it is becauses there is too much of everything, there is even too much money.
- That is the crazy thing about out economic situation,
- on the one hand there are people not having enough for food,
- and on the other hand there are others who have so much money they don't know where to invest it.
- In desperate quest for investment opportunities there is so much money on the move around the world
- that these financial products had to be invented.
- Interest is at a all time low, and the interest rate is the proce for money.
- If there is a log of something, then the price goes down.
- And intrest rates are at absolute zero, except for the Greeks.
- As you can see this is all completely absurd and has nothing to do with reality.
- There is too much of everything, but we need growth.
- The gravestone of capitalism will read:
- "Too much was not enough."
