In The most sensible approach cash Can Buy, Carolyn M.

By Alberto Bagnai

Los angeles crisi dei mutui subprime è scoppiata nel 2007, e dagli Stati Uniti ha contagiato l’intera economia globale. Oggi, mentre il resto del mondo è in ripresa, in Europa stiamo ancora parlando di debiti. Perché? È ormai chiaro che terapie sbagliate come l’austerità hanno solo peggiorato le cose. Occorre una diagnosi più accurata, capace di risalire alle origini dei nostri problemi. Chi è stato a indebitarsi così tanto, e according to quale motivo? Da chi ha avuto i soldi? Perché solo in Italia e in Europa non ne stiamo venendo fuori? Alberto Bagnai dimostra che le radici della crisi europea affondano nell’iniqua distribuzione del reddito che da più di trent’anni caratterizza tutte le economie avanzate. Con los angeles globalizzazione finanziaria, i salari reali hanno perso terreno rispetto alla produttività del lavoro, a tutto vantaggio dei profitti. Ma perché il capitalismo funzioni, se non è sostenuta dai salari, l. a. domanda di beni deve essere finanziata dal debito. Da una situazione in cui il lavoratore è un cliente, si è passati a una realtà in cui il lavoratore è un debitore. È il trionfo del capitale sul lavoro, ma anche il fallimento del paradigma economico liberista. In Europa, los angeles moneta unica ha accentuato queste dinamiche globali. L’euro ha permesso ai cittadini del Sud di finanziare più facilmente il consumo di beni prodotti dal Nord, e li ha indotti advert accettare politiche di compressione dei salari e dei diritti, presentate come biglietto di ingresso nel membership dei paesi «virtuosi». A questo si aggiunge, in Italia, un fenomeno senza paragoni nel landscape mondiale: l’autorazzismo, ciò che Gadda chiamava «la porca rogna italiana del denigramento di noi stessi». È così che ha preso piede los angeles filosofia antidemocratica del vincolo esterno, condivisa da tutti i partiti politici della Prima e della Seconda Repubblica al grido di «ce lo chiede l’Europa!»: un sistema discutibile anche quando l’Europa sembrava in salute; ora che sta fallendo, è giunto il momento di riacquistare un più alto senso di dignità e solidarietà nazionale, e cambiare strada. Dopo Il tramonto dell’euro, Alberto Bagnai propone los angeles sua formulation in keeping with evitare il disastro, con lo stile appassionato e il rigore analitico che lo hanno reso un punto di riferimento nel dibattito contemporaneo. l. a. soluzione alla crisi italiana ed europea passa according to il recupero della piena sovranità economica degli Stati e il ritorno alle valute nazionali, condizione necessaria in keeping with ristabilire l’equilibrio fra i paesi membri dell’Unione e restituire loro piena legittimità democratica. Solo così si potranno elaborare e mettere in pratica politiche economiche espansive, ispirate al principio di equità. Solo così l’Italia potrà farcela.
