Die Wut wächst Politik braucht Prinzipien by Oskar Lafontaine( Book )

16 editions published between 2002 and 2017 in German and Spanish and held by 209 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Die Globalisierung schafft einen Wohlstand, der die Reichen reicher und die Armen ärmer macht, statt dem Wohle der ganzen Welt zu dienen. Oskar Lafontaine kritisiert die deutsche und die internationale Politik, die diese Tendenzen noch verstärkt anstatt ihnen entgegenzuwirken. Faktenreich und leidenschaftlich attackiert er Unternehmen, die den höchsten Renditen hinterherjagen, ohne sich um die Umwelt und die Menschen zu kümmern; die Finanzmärkte, die Billionen um den Erdball schleudern, sowie IWF, WHO und Weltbank, die alle auf die Menschen in der Dritten Welt wenig Rücksicht nehmen; außerdem die USA, die immer skrupelloser ihre militärische und ökonomische Vormachtstellung zur Durchsetzung eigener Interessen nutzen. Die Entwicklungen, vor denen er warnt - Entfesselung der Finanzmärkte, Privatisierungswahn, Militarisierung der deutschen Politik, neue Kriege und wachsende Verarmung als Ursache von Terrorismus und Flucht, sowie das Erstarken rechtspopulistischer Parteien - sind mittlerweile Realität. Im Vorwort zur jetzt erscheinenden Neuausgabe seines zum Bestseller gewordenen politischen Manifestes schreibt Oskar Lafontaine daher zu Recht: "Der Titel des im Jahre 2002 geschriebenen Buches 'Die Wut wächst - Politik braucht Prinzipien' war rückblickend nicht falsch gewählt." Das Gesetz des Marktes und das Recht des Stärkeren, so Lafontaine, können nicht die Maxime für unsere Zukunft sein - wir brauchen eine Politik für eine gerechtere Welt

Against the troika : crisis and austerity in the Eurozone by Heiner Flassbeck( Book )

3 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 152 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"On the 25th January 2015, the Greek people voted in an election of historic importance--not just for Greece but potentially all of Europe. The radical party Syriza was elected and austerity and the neoliberal agenda challenged. Suddenly it seems as if there is an alternative. But what? The Eurozone is in a deep and prolonged crisis. It is now clear that monetary union is a historic failure, beyond repair--and certainly not in the interests of Europe's working people. Building on the economic analysis of two of Europe's leading thinkers, Heiner Flassbeck and Costas Lapavitsas (now a Syriza member of parliament), Against the Troika is the first book to propose a strategic left-wing plan for how peripheral countries could exit the euro. With a change in government in Greece, and looming political transformations in countries such as Spain, this major intervention lays out a radical, anti-capitalist programme at a critical juncture for Europe. The final three chapters offer a detailed postmortem of the Greek catastrophe, explain what can be learned from it--and provide a possible alternative. Against the is a practical blueprint for real change in a continent wracked by crisis and austerity"--Back cover

The heart beats on the left by Oskar Lafontaine( Book )

21 editions published between 1999 and 2001 in 5 languages and held by 70 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Heart Beats on the Left is the inside story of why Lafontaine broke with the SPD and Schroder's government, and why he believed that the social and political costs of Schroder's third way politics were too high. It is a merciless settling of scores in which the policies of Schroder and his government are subjected to scathing criticism. But it is also the most sustained criticism of third way politics from a prominent political figure who stands on the left."--Jacket
