Systems

This picture has gone around the world – as a symbol of the Evilness of Europe.

But it is not Evilness – it is STUPIDITY – the lack of innovation and problem solving skills of governments and their advisors.

In English:

Who caused the refugee crisis? Whoever dropped bombs in Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, Syria and Yemen.

But it was the lack of concept of the government in Europe and their corrupt consultants what made it escalate and lead to the rise of right-wing parties – again without sustainable concepts – that will bring things to further escalation.

“We make it” (analogue to Obama’s “Yes we can” this sentence did Mrs Merkel not come up yourself, any of your Advisor has formulated it for her) but “How” is Europe supposed to deal with the refugee crisis?

The government and their stupid lobbyists-consultants don’t know – they have no concept – no opinion – no ideas for problem solving.

Some problems you just have to SOLVE and can not sit out like Chancellor Kohl and “silence” – no matter how much you weigh.

in German:

Was hat die Flüchtlingskrise derart eskalieren lassen?

Es war vor die Konzeptlosigkeit der Regierung und ihrer korrupten Berater.

“Wir schaffen das” (diesen Satz hat Sie sich NICHT selbst ausgedacht, irgendeiner ihrer Berater hat ihn formuliert) aber “Wie” weiss Sie und ihre bescheuerten Lobbyisten-Berater nicht.

Manche Probleme muss man einfach LÖSEN und kann diese einfach nicht aussitzen wie Kanzler Kohl und “schweigen” – egal wie viel man wiegt.

SHOCKING NEWS: Joe Kaeser is an android.

UPDATE: SIEMENS CEO Kaeser wants to make “investors” (the free market of ignorant self-destruction) happy and increase profit by reducing 20,000 office jobs.

Vision: 2020+: Not a single human being is working at SIEMENS – they all got replaced by robots.

“In a small round with (wallstreet speculators) / analysts, Kaeser stressed that efficiency in cross-sectional functions such as human resources, Finance or law should increase by more than 20 percent by 2021.”

The game goes like this: buy a rock solid (since century family run?) company – maximize profits by firering 50% of the workers and make those that stay work double – then sell the company with +300% to the next investor that does exactly the same. Screwed new world.

UPDATE auf Deutsch: Kaeser möchte massiv Kosten sparen und 20.000 zentrale Stellen abbauen

“In einer kleinen Runde mit Analysten betonte Kaeser dem Blatt zufolge, die Effizienz in den Querschnittsfunktionen wie Personal, Finanzen oder Recht solle bis 2021 um mehr als 20 Prozent steigen.”

„Wir stellen erstmalig den Sinn in den Mittelpunkt unserer Strategie“ (src)

Klingt Gut. Woran war denn die Strategie vorher ausgerichtet?

‘Joe Kaeser will seinen Konzern gut auf die Zukunft vorbereiten. In der Aufteilung des Kerngeschäfts in drei Einheiten sieht er eine „klare Wachstums-Story“’ (src)

“Ein Konzern wie Siemens muss seine Zukunft aus einer Position der Stärke heraus selbst gestalten – bevor es andere tun.” (src)

Wenn der Aktienkurs – von selbst – nicht steigen will – muss man eben nachhelfen – denkt sich der ein oder “Dienstleister der Finanzindustrie” der mit Geld Geld verdient und sonst eigentlich nichts herstellt.

BuyOut of TXU: “Shares of TXU added +13.2% in afternoon trading on the New York Stock Exchange. TXU was the second-most active issue on the NYSE.” (src)

 

Gleichzeitig wird die Vokabel “Aktivist” durch den Dreck gezogen.

Wenn “Private Equity Investoren” wie KKR (BlackRock) Arbeitsplätze oder gar ein Unternehmen selbst gefährden (Horror Story WMF: Verraten und Verkauft, Ausgeschlachtet, wieder Verkauft mit +300%) sollte der Staat eingreifen und sagen: “So nicht – Kapitalismus kann man fair und unfair spielen und Unfaire Spieler sollen zuhause bleiben – egal wieviel Geld Sie von wem verwalten.”

“Ein Blick in die USA zeigt, wie es jemandem ergehen kann. Der Siemens-Erzrivale General Electric hatte sich in zu vielen Geschäften verzettelt und operative Schwächen mit Bilanzarithmetik überdeckt. Die Quittung: GE wird gestaltet, wie es Kaeser ausdrückt. So muss sich General Electric in der Krise ganz von seiner profitablen Medizintechnik trennen.

Bei Siemens haben Eigenständigkeit und Börsengang den Healthineers gutgetan. Die Einheit hat in den vergangenen Jahren eindeutig an Flexibilität und Fokus gewonnen. Doch liegt die deutliche Mehrheit bei Siemens. Die Kontrolle über den Wandel wird also behalten.

Aus einem Konzern sind zwei starke, miteinander verbundene Unternehmen geworden – auch Siemens Alstom und Siemens Gamesa haben das Potenzial dazu. Sie müssen sich aber erst noch beweisen. Bei der Windkrafttochter war der Start ja holprig verlaufen.

Investoren werden Verkäufe fordern

Und doch ist Kaesers Vorgehen eine Gratwanderung. Mit seiner proaktiven Strategie ist er aktionistischen Investoren einen Schritt voraus, die anderswo das Management vor sich hertreiben und zum Beispiel eine simple Zerschlagung oder die Abspaltung von Unternehmensteilen fordern.

Doch gleichzeitig schafft Kaeser ohne jeden Zweifel Sollbruchstellen. Für einen Nachfolger wird es organisatorisch ein Leichtes sein, bei der Windkraft oder der Bahntechnik durch den Verkauf nur weniger Anteile unter die Mehrheit zu rutschen.”

Nationalist Agendas: KKR: New Playbook required

“From a macro and asset allocation perspective, we think we may be on the cusp of a secular shift where a new playbook for investing may be required. Most importantly, we now see a significant ‘baton hand-off’ in many of the markets that we cover from monetary policy towards fiscal stimulus — perhaps the most important shift in the last decade. This change in policy leads us to favor investments with greater linkages to the real economy — versus purely financial assets — than in the past. We also continue to see nationalist agendas supplanting more global ones. Against this backdrop, we now favor more upfront yield in the portfolio, we advocate shortening duration, and we place a premium on low-cost liabilities. We also continue to view Asia as the world’s incremental growth engine.

The good news is that uncertainty almost always breeds opportunity for those who are not only prepared but also willing to adapt.

At the moment, we estimate roughly 40% of the United States’ total trade deficit is derived from three areas: transportation (Mexico), apparel (China), and technology (China).

In terms of specifics, we estimate that over 100% of the U.S. trade deficit with Mexico is in one category, transportation, while nearly two-thirds of the trade deficit with China is centered in the apparel and computer categories.

Are large parts of mankind willing and courage enough to make brave decisions and changes?

or: is the elite right that it can control the masses (90%) by fear and fear alone?

(the sole aim of terrorism is to cause fear. (in latin “terror” means “horror”)

so the elite is pretty interested in more not less terror.

Why is there no concept by the state for it’s citizens? how to live as sustainable as possible?

tossing people into poverty by the masses can not be “the solution”.

Efficiency is (mostly) focusing on:

  • saving money
  • saving time

but it actually should focus more on:

  • resource efficiency – save resources – especially the NON renewable

resource efficiency is about keeping things in balance, sustainability and saving mankind (the planet does NOT care if were go extinct like the dinosaurs) … is what we need now.

A 2014 report by The Carbon Trust suggested that resource challenges are intensifying rapidly – for example, there could be a 40% gap between available water supplies and water needs by 2030, and some critical materials could be in short supply as soon as 2016.[needs update] These challenges could lead to disruptions to supply, growing regulatory requirements, volatile fluctuation of prices, and may ultimately threaten the viability of existing business models.[1] (src)

This means: Water – is precious – it is not there to be wasted under no circumstances, or as Mark Boyle put it: “do not shit into drinking water”

dry toilets: poop in the bucket – then compost…

because shit is not shit – it is resources.

also: trash is not trash – it is resources.

Currently only 50% of the plastic wrapping in Germany (!) get’s recycled – the rest goes up in smoke (burned as fuel to generate electricity/heat) – which (right now) produces CO2 and other cancer causing chemicals that can kills the climate and people.

Trees will happily use our CO2 but not the cancer chemicals.

Sometimes saving resources also means saving money – but sometimes it does not: example: “planned obsolescence

planned obsolescence is the purposeful and cartel-like worsening of the quality of products by the manufacturer – to make the consumer consume more. you don’t think it exists? you better do. one example is well documented: 1925: Phoebus Cartel (ask Wikipedia) – producers of light bulbs meet in secrecy and decide that light bulbs shall not live longer than 1000 hours of operation – whoever goes against it has to pay a fine. it worked fine. sales increased by 20-25%. was it worth it?

the same is true for cars, dishwashers, phones… the list is endless.

another example: refund-bottle-system in Germany.

The bottle-producers and lobbyists were at first against it, fear of less sales, but actually they profit: 20% of all bottles are NOT returned, so the bottle-producer cashes in those 10-15Cents per bottle.

80% of the refund-bottles are returned – and the super-poor actually do this as a job.

While the bottle-return-refund system in Germany has TOO many exceptions… tiny aluminum cans and some plastic bottles are excluded? why? (lobby-broken) … there is no incentive at all for people e.g. in Greece and other parts of the world to collect plastic, glass or aluminum bottles and return them to the store – so they get tossed out into nature and fill the road sides with trash or even at worst: the oceans.

So the questions that are there really is:

  • is mankind as intelligent as it thinks it is?
  • are large parts of mankind willing and courage enough to make brave decisions and changes? (i guess not, that’s what the elite is speculating on… that they can control the masses (90%) by fear and fear alone)
  • can mankind be saved?
  • will mankind – driven by hunger for money – knowingly or un-knowingly destabilize it’s habitat to a point of no return?
  • can quality of life and the way of life of mankind be saved?
  • can mankind coexist peacefully with itself and other species on this planet?

… i often say: it’s never too late – unless the last human took the last breath in this universe. then it is too late.

… i wonder if in the economical bring-to-state-collapse, people have time/resources for this. i hope.
