2019-12: Warum funktioniert unsere Wirtschaft nicht?

Dirk Ehnts gibt Antworten.

Modern Monetary Theorie – ein INTERVIEW mit Dirk Ehnts

  • Bundesregierung inkompetent (nur mit Juristen aber ohne Ökonomen besetzt?)
    • intelektuelles Versagen: “Politik hat nicht verstanden was da passiert”
  • Bachelor Studium estes Semester:
    • Q: Was macht ihr wenn die Ökonomie ein Nachfrageproblem hat und die Beschäftigung sinkt?
    • A: Staat muss die Ausgaben erhöhen oder Zentralbank muss Zinsen senken – oder beides.
    • (auch der offene Brief von Herr Ehnts an die “schwarze Null” aka Wolfgang Scheuble hat dabei nichts bewirkt)
    • “Politik hat in den Panikmodus geschaltet und nicht mehr auf den Sachverstand vertraut”
    • Es ist wie so oft, die Politik hört nicht auf die Wissenschaft – wie lange soll derartige Wahrheits-Ignoranz funktionieren? (hat keine Nachhaltigkeit das wird umso deutlicher, umso stärker der Wind bläst und bei der ersten Böe könnte der auf Schwachsinn gebaute Kahn schon kenntern)
  • ECB hat versucht den Euro zu retten

“Er hält seit 2016 jeden Sommer einen Kurs zur Modern Monetary Theory im Rahmen der Summer School der Universität Maastricht ab.

2019 organisierte er für die Pufendorf-Gesellschaft e. V. die 1. Europäische MMT-Konferenz.

Im Juli 2019 plädierte er für die Einführung eines europäischen Finanzministeriums (Euro Treasury) und eines Rechts auf Arbeit (Job Guarantee).

Ehnts hat zahlreiche Artikel in Fachzeitschriften veröffentlicht, dazu in Tageszeitungen wie taz, FAZ und NZZ und Blogs (u. a. Makroskop und Ökonomenstimme) und war als Sachverständiger beim Finanzausschuss des Bundestags zum Thema TARGET2 eingeladen.

Für Julia Herr (SJ/SPÖ) war Ehnts im Zuge der Europawahlen 2019 an der Ausarbeitung eines Green New Deal maßgeblich beteiligt.”

Goldman Sachs: U.S. ECONOMY TO SHRINK 24% FROM APRIL to JUNE 2020

https://finance.yahoo.com/news/u-economy-shrink-24-april-155126416.html

The Declaration of Independence – for it’s age of over 250 years – was and still is (!) GREAT AMAZING MASTER PIECE OF CULTURE AND CIVILIZATION.

A beacon of light in the middle ages.

Now it seems the corrupting forces of capitalistic have worked steady on going back in time to the middle ages (PLEASE NOT AGAIN!) (corruption -> collapse -> say hello to the middle ages, rebuild from ash and rubble)

Maybe it is time for a new and better constitution for the US – that has CONCRETE DIRECT TRUTH SCIENCE AND EVIDENCE BASED LAWS for SUSTAINABLE SURVIVAL OF ALL MANKIND.

Since then… nobody is to blame but:

  • the reckless
  • the ignorant
  • the greedy
  • the corrupt
    • everything in the universe depends on a balance
    • when Trump prints $2Trillion new Dollars and hand them out IN SECRECY WITHOUT ANY conditions (to bail out wallstreet (“the cancer”) not mainstreet (the society/worker)) he makes a terrible mistake and just increased INBALANCE and DECREASED STABILITY
      • i expect Trump to step down in the next weeks for mishandling a massive crisis
      • Trump and other’s do not understand – they are not as important and mighty as they think – that without a rise in paychecks – without people working for it – money is worth NOTHING – it becomes paper without a function and purpose.
      • also:
        • Central Banks and
        • law makers
        • NEED TO REALIZE THAT ALTERNATIVES (biodiversity of monetary / cooperation systems = is good = more stable economy & society) ARE GOOD AND SHOULD BE ALLOWED

          • this also means: gov (of course should not over tax anybody) BUT NEEDS TO ALLOW/ACCEPT PAYMENT OF TAXES in many other currencies such as BitCoins
        • ALLOW ALTERNATIVES TO FIAT CURRENCIES OR RISK SOCIETY COLLAPSE
  • have killed the American Dream. (some are still fighting… like Elon Musk)

https://finance.yahoo.com/ live stream

for me: it is a crisis of ignorance = STUPIDITY (not bliss) and lack of education

If you want to kill a country – kill it’s education system.

Because in a society full of idiots – what do you think will happen?

Shit will happen. A LOT OF SHIT.

USA… sorry to say but… unless USA can do the turnaround and become a beacon of light again – refugees will be the least problem – Nobody will want to move there anymore.

My sincere sympathy with the US Jills and Joes of mainstreet.

What could also be worse:

is the economic collapse after the corona crisis.

“As soon as it rains – capitalism is fucked” (what a “clever” system designed by mad men)

stats from italy:

Italian doc: “it is not a normal flu”

says Maurizio Cecconi, MD, of Humanitas University in Milan in this video.

only combination of measures can take down virus:

  1. isolation (Antonio Pesenti: “if we were all at home #Coronavirus would stop in 15 days”)

  2. Training of medical workers how to treat hypoxia
  3. ramp up available beds and ventilators (ICU)

STOP SMOKING!

SMOKER LUNGS ARE PERFECT FOR VIRUSES! X-D

My comment:

There are 35 projects to develop a vaccine against the corona virus. (which if it is changing at a flue like rate, will have to be re-made new every year/season – from blood of people that already survived the virus!).

THE FEAR: is that a flu like virus could come into existence that spreads as easy as flu (during winter times in northern (colder) hemispheres) but is as severe as HIV or other disease (Spanish Flu revival).

Neither the swine nor bird flue have proven to be that deadly.

The corona virus according to who data has a global (!) mortality rate of around 3%. (depending on medical care available in the country)

who data of 2020-03-15: 152428 infected / 100 = 1524 is 1%
5270 deaths / 1524 = 3.458%

BUT: flu and HIV viruses for example are “dirty copy machines” meaning: when they infect someone they reprogram human body cells to reproduce themselves (parasite style).

when a biological virus successfully compromised a human cell – some viruses tend to make very bad copies from themselves with loads of errors in the genome. (imagine to receive a fax and then copy the fax, then copy the copy and so on… until the text can almost not be read anymore).

a lot of those bad copies won’t even work (wastage) – but some of them will work – while having a completely new surface – allowing them to slip through the immune virus scanner undetected.

so the reason why mankind has the flu every year – again – is because of those bad copy / fast mutation technique of flu virus.

that is also the reason that there is not a single vaccine against all flu viruses or a vaccine against HIV (also dirty copy machine).

Should the Chinese become vegetarian?

DEFINITELY!

Hygiene wise this virus could also have started in India (it is probably there, but nobody is testing X-D and counting the numbers)

India has 90% vegetarians for religious reasons (hindu).

Chinese people that have risen out of poverty love to eat meat. So the meat consumption there is skyrocketed. Not good and highly unsustainable.

Hongkong approach to the corona virus: not complete halt of tourism and flights but: everyone that wants to enter Hongkong needs to stay in quarantine for 14 days.

If you have an important business trip. That is probably what it takes to get there.

The tourism industry is suffering heavy heavy losses, while oil get’s cheap as dirt (nobody needs it).

WHO Corona dashboard:

https://gisanddata.maps.arcgis.com/apps/opsdashboard/index.html#/bda7594740fd40299423467b48e9ecf6

Of course this needs to be taken serious. Studied. Monitored but not panicked about.

But if governments do not have truthful intelligent studied people in this area – than any government is fucked and we are all governed by idiots.

The French minister of Health via Twitter:

in English (auto translated): # COVIDー19/ taking anti-inflammatory drugs (ibuprofen, cortisone,… ) could be an aggravating factor for infection. In case of fever, take paracetamol.
If you are already taking anti-inflammatory medicines or if you are not sure, ask your doctor for advice.

in French (original): “#COVIDー19 | La prise d’anti-inflammatoires (ibuprofène, cortisone, …) pourrait être un facteur d’aggravation de l’infection. En cas de fièvre, prenez du paracétamol.
Si vous êtes déjà sous anti-inflammatoires ou en cas de doute, demandez conseil à votre médecin.”

in Spanish (auto translated): # COVIDー19 / tomar medicamentos antiinflamatorios (ibuprofeno, cortisona,…) podría ser un factor agravante para la infección. En caso de fiebre, tome paracetamol.
Si ya está tomando medicamentos antiinflamatorios o si no está seguro, consulte a su médico.

in German (auto translated): # COVIDー19/ Einnahme von entzündungshemmenden Medikamenten (Ibuprofen, Cortison,…) könnte ein Faktor für die Verschlimmerung der Infektion sein. Bei Fieber paracetamol einnehmen.
Wenn Sie bereits entzündungshemmende Medikamente einnehmen oder Zweifel haben, Fragen Sie Ihren Arzt um Rat.

Lung specialist Wolfgang Wodarg now Talks LIVE about the effects of the corona Virus Frontal21

transcript of Dr Wodarg’s video:

  • science needs critique
    • science searches for truth
    • it is important to be open about one’s findings and open one’s findings to the critique of the rest of the world
  • it all started that a hospital in Wuhan reported patients with serious respiratory problems
    • they started searching for possibly responsible viruses
    • Wuhan has big biotech laboratories
    • they found a virus that they did not know yet and published the genome sequence on the internet
    • virologists around the world now start to search their databases in order to identify the virus
  • by the data published on the internet by Wuhan the Charite Berlin Germany a test was developed, without having the actual virus in Berlin
    • Dr Wodarg doubts that the PCR test is very accurate, the test might also be positive on patients with SARS virus
    • the PCR test might cause more scare then good
    • anti body test:
      • the immune “memory” will remember the serious illnesses but the not-so-serious could be “forgotten”
  • corona vs  “the normal seasonal flue” (influenza):
    • 1 in 1000 will die from normal flue (especially old and already sick with other diseases, COPD, smokers!!!)
    • not true that winter 2019/2020 was a harsh flue season (2017 was a harsh flue season)
      • in Germany alone there are 8 million additional doctor visits during a flue season
    • of 100.000 people:
      • 30% that have no symptoms at all
      • 60% get sick but they cure it at home without a doctor
      • 8% have serious symptoms
      • 0.5% have to go to the hospital
        • of those 0.5% patients, 0.05% patients will test positive on corona, but in the previous years it was never tested
      • lethal for older people (average age 80) with serious heart, cancer,  COPD, smokers!!!
      • we don’t know if they died of corona, all we know is, that after death, corona viruses were detected
    • means: corona viruses have been around (around the globe) for a long time, but docs never tested for them
    • the fear pandemic is, that in this Chinese hospital and other hospitals now people can be tested for the corona virus, but many will have no severe or no symptoms at all.
      • Dr Wodarg highly doubts the numbers from China are accurate, someone just said: “stop testing, you will only scare people”
  • “i would not isolate my kids from other kids” (visits, trips, birthday parties etc.)
  • how long can virus survive on surfaces?
  • cortisone should be avoided if possible
  • Why has a healthy young medic in Wuhan died?

my comment:

  • viruses come together with bacteria
    • both need to be taken serious
    • governments are largely advised by lobbyists that come from big billion USD and EUR companies that have not the public well being in mind but only the profit of their company, Trump style: “sealing the deal”
    • especially the pharma mafia has proven again and again to be willing to kill in order to make profit
    • possible solution: food and water and even energy people can produce themselves if the gov would give them the land and cheap loans
    • all other SYSTEMS AND PRODUCTS humans lifes depend on in order to survive (medicines) need to be produced by at least one governmental institution in order to avoid being “ransomed” by private companies
  • is someone sick, who has the virus but shows no symptoms?
    • as with any flue, he/she could be a danger for very old and already sick people, so yes, docs and elderly care staff should be tested and stay home until tests are negative, but anyone else: guess no need to stay home

The ‘false’ pandemic: Drug firms cashed in on scare over swine flu, claims Euro health chief

“The swine flu outbreak was a ‘false pandemic’ driven by drug companies that stood to make billions of pounds from a worldwide scare, a leading health expert has claimed.”
