Extreme Capitalism is a Plague on Britain and America




The news kind of explains the issue – not the whole issue per se, but a substantial part. People need to realize technology advances at a very fast pace, so fast that it kills other technologies that were considered stupendous even 5 years ago. Gone are those days of secretarial, legal or administrative jobs.

So what’s the safe bet? Jobs in STEM fields will never die. It’s surprising the so-called advanced western nations were caught napping off guard while developing countries took steps to fill in the gap. Problem is, in the last decade the gap became so immense, the developed nations are finding it very hard to catch up, they will eventually, but in the course they lost a decade.

As a owner of a nanotechnology company, I am as frustrated as the job seekers. While job seekers complain not being hired even if they have a degree (in STEM), we technocrats are frustrated with the quality of the graduates churned out by the universities. I need my vacancy to be filled, although I want it to be filled by a national, I have no choice left than giving the job to an international, who is far superior in quality. And no, I don’t pay them less, I pay them equally as I pay my American labor force.

Solution: Increase the amount of quality STEM graduates. We need them, you need them, the country needs them. Poverty will drop, more jobs will be created.

Don’t think of myself as hard-hearted, but there are many of us Brits who have witnessed the down-side of the welfare state and a loosening of personal and family responsibility over a few generations. A safety net is absolutely necessary in any society, but there are questions raised here e.g about a 24 year-old with a child who puts herself and her child in this dire position by having a baby with a partner who can just abandon them with no legal partnership. Did she ever stop to consider what having a baby under these circumstances at 21 could bring ? Not much detail about the woman who couldn’t make ends meet after paying her rent and utilities. No possibility of renting a room in a house/ sharing, or living at home ? Where are the families in all of this ? The families tend to take a back-seat, because the government will step in if no other means. There are many real and deserving hardship cases for sure, always have been and always will be – if only we could focus all resources on those.

I’m sure you’re not hard-hearted but public ignorance of the economic & social reality (including especially the benefits to all of us) of the “welfare state”¹, combined with a great deal of fallacious reasoning, outright lies and spurious moralising from politicians and the media, has hardened the hearts of many in the UK and allowed this government (and to some extent the previous one) to get away with a scandalous and horrific assault on the country’s poor and sick.

David Cameron said there is no magic wand to solve the UK financial problems, but he is dead wrong. There is a structural solution. As his Holiness Pope Francis recently said ‘The need to resolve the structural causes of poverty cannot be delayed. We can no longer trust in the unseen forces and the invisible hand of the market.’
The fundamental structural problem with capitalism is the flaw in our monetary system which necessitates that money is created from debt. Under our Fractional Reserve Banking mechanism, commercial (not central) banks create money out of thin air when they extend new loans, then charge fees and interest on the money which hadn’t existed before the loan was advanced. Instead of a torturous austerity program in the UK and Europe which has destroyed lives, governments should have avoided the banks and created money directly into the economy.
Why do banks enjoy infinite capacity to create new money, yet structural inequality continues? Pope Francis understands this just as Marx did, just as Adam Smith did. (see Das Kapital, V.3, Chapter XXIX, quoting Smith)

Dubious article, though the change in the GINI index in the UK is clear enough (though less than that in the US, home of Gordon Gekko). The distinction between London and the North is no different than that between NYC and, say, Jamestown, NY; it may even be less. As for the statistics, I believe the total rise in general cost of living in the UK over the last five years is more like 13%, not 20%.

Economic distress has increased in the UK in the last five years, but the numbers quoted in the article are misleading. The number of people a single organization has fed in the last year means something, but it gives a very misleading idea of what is happening on average. There’s no way the need for food increased threefold la last year (!) when things are actually going better than they did a year ago in Britain.

‘Things are going better than they did a year ago in Britain’ you say.

Not so for the majority, and the biggest effects of the coalition’s social policies are on the working poor and those on benefits.

This, paired with the fact that food banks are becoming normalised here (so the ‘pride’ in the article, that used to put people off food banks , is being eroded out of sheer necessity), make the threefold increase sound quite reflective of reality from where I’m standing.

I would take the article at face value, it is a true reflection.

In spite of triumphal statements by the Cameron coalition, the evidence is more palpable in a country which cannot afford to take proper care of its most vulnerable citizens. The Government appears to ignore that food, water/heating are UN human rights and that hunger represents cruelty to kiddies going without. Resorting to food banks is a humiliation for any citizen, however needy. The UK may be the 6th world economy but this figure only reflects the living standards of the minority millionaire class! No surprise, since many banks were rescued with public funds leaving the public seriously depleted. Considering record banking profits in 2013, it is astonishing that these “borrowed” funds have still not been paid back! While accountability still appears lacking, banks withhold loans which might help people get back on their feet and, at the same time, allow themselves to borrow at 0,5%, speculating on the stock exchange as they please! Cheese pairing Britain boasts of riches, but coolly efficient Germany “keeps Mum” about its mounting gold reserves. Considering that the EU and the ECB have made a concerted effort to unifying banking procedures, improving efficiency and transparency plus eliminating abusive bonuses, the British public may well be better off joining the EU for once and for all.

This story is an excellent example of what neoliberalism has done to our society.

Capitalism, for better or worse, is the economic system we’re stuck with. For it to work effectively, however, we need governments to smooth out the rough edges of the ‘free’ market. People who want to work, or who do work, are going hungry, and why? If the private sector will not spend of of the billions of dollars they are sitting on to spur employment and wage growth, then, the governments of the world either need to do this or further incentivize the private sector to do so.

Capitalism will collapse upon itself without governments to make it work. We’ve reached a point where over-accumulation is now bad for the health of the economy (as if the economy is a living creature).

Neoliberal economic policies help those with money make more but are pretty crummy for everyone else. It’s time for a return to Keynesianism.

“If the private sector will not spend of of the billions of dollars they are sitting on to spur employment and wage growth, then, the governments of the world either need to do this or further incentivize the private sector to do so.”

Chris, no one in the private sector does this because you never make an investment for the sake of creating employment. You would not invest your own money, simply to employ people. You employ people when you are convinced you’ll receive a return on your investment. Capital is always deployed to take advantage of a market opportunity, and employment is the result.

It is certainly true that food has got more expensive. As for not being able to afford the cost of gas to cook a meal, I think one must take that as a sign of a mental attitude rather than a reality.

Things do look different in London from the rest of the UK. Scarcely noticed the recession here. London continues to boom, as does its property prices. . That is indeed a big problem, as middle-earners are squeezed out.

As far as the fishing industry (once big in Hull) is concerned, you can place a great deal of blame on Britain’s membership of the EU. This requires Britain to share a national asset (fishing waters) with other EU members. While Britain has a nominal quota, this has mostly been sold to a tiny number of Spanish fishing companies which set up shell companies in Britain. The benefit and employment go to Spain and not the UK.

Finally, London (and some other parts of the UK) are full of foreigners working in every conceivable field: restaurants, hotels, post offices, supermarkets, pharmacies, van drivers, labourers, carpenters, electricians, bank tellers…even local guides in my area. So, while there may be few jobs in Hull, there are plenty in London.

Some good points, but on your last paragraph, how is a person in Hull who can’t pay their own rent , heat and food going to raise the money for rent and down payments to move to London on the off-chance that they might be able to find work?

Fishing, although an important industry for Hull at one time, is a very small overall proportion of the UK economy. The EU provides the UK with access to the largest single market in the world, and as such is vital to the continued health of the UK, overall, fishing issues apart. Mores the pity that the UK has not run it’s economy wisely, in the past, in a similar way to much more prosperous Germany, one of the most committed and supportive members of the EU, which again, wisely, recognises the benefits of EU membership.

David EvansManchester UK
The UK has become on of the most unequal societies in Western Europe. It is both between rich and poor, and between some areas of the UK (especially London) and other areas. Within London, huge wealth and poverty exist side by side, separated by a few hundred yards.

Prices for everything…food, transport costs, energy, housing, child-care, you name it..have rocketed. Successive governments have failed to keep up with housing demand, resulting in the cost of renting a home becoming crippling, and mortgages are beyond many young people, because of unaffordable house prices. The housing situation has reverted to the 1950s, where many can only rent and at the mercy of unregulated landlords.

Britain has allowed manufacturing industry to wither since the 1960s, unlike Germany or France, resulting in fewer skilled jobs and more unskilled minimum wage service jobs…e.g. call centres, retail etc. These are non unionised (unlike the old manufacturing jobs) and workers have little bargaining power.

The country is declining relatively, and the working poor are just more evidence of this.

When our governments make it more advantageous to have goods and now services made elsewhere by those in (worse) abject poverty and then allow companies nearly unchallenged importation for sale in first world nations, some type of setting of balances has to occur. In essence we are agreeing to insert into our western economies a new class of poor workers at abysmal (and economy wrecking) wages which fundamentally undermine all worker advances and wage controls in our own economies.

So long as we don’t see these poor workers we seem to think there are no consequences, when of course there must be. We are not raising the level of these foreign poverty workers lives so much as we are bringing the lives of our own blue collar work force down to parity with the rest of this dismal global work force. At the same time, increased profits, of which there are many, are being paid out to those least in need at the top 20% of incomes. Look at the data and its quite clear.

People in Britain are being subject to levels of poverty, not seen since
Dickensian days. The reason for this, it that the government are not creating jobs
or building new social housing. The government are neglecting the same people
who voted for them at the last election.
The cost of living, food prices among them, continues to rise by the week, incomes have fallen, and welfare, the safety net to help bridge the gap between what people earn, and what they spend, has all but been removed by this government. The chancellor revealed his intentions to completely abolish welfare recently. He said “Britain, cannot afford a welfare state”. Yet the welfare provided by the public, for the banking industry, continues to provide bailouts and bail ins, to the sum of trillions of pounds. I have felt the effect of government austerity first hand.
I was made homeless before Christmas, when my housing benefit was stopped by my council. There was no reason for it to be stopped, and i am challenging the council’s decision to take my home from me. The Council have not rehoused me and have abandoned me. I am going through one of the worst experiences in my life, and because the government has cut support for people in financial difficulty
i cannot get help from them for temporary accommodation, food or clothing.

There are lots of reasons for family break ups, but financial pressure
financial burdens are one. The government in England has cut support for families financially. They have also closed day care center’s that supported families that aren’t earning enough money to pay for private child care.
The government has also introduced a tax on spare bedrooms
charging people more money in rent if they have an empty or bedroom.
The government’s definition for this is very thin. Many families with disabled children are being forced out of their homes or are in danger of losing them if one of their bedrooms is used to provide treatment or aid for a disabled family relative. The government claims to support families
but in reality, they have taken financial, and other forms of support
just as they have from single people. Members of the government
laughed in Parliament before christmas, when there was a debate to discuss the rising numbers of people having to use food banks to prevent them going hungry. If the suffering, that is happening in Britain were happening in another country, the government would be calling for

It would be helpful if the journalist explained why the welfare system is failing these people. Are people not eligible for benefits? Are the payments too small and not representative of the cost of living? Does it take too long to apply for benefits and thus there is a gap that food banks are meeting?

RichardCardiff, Wales
Susan, some of these people will be eligible for benefits, some will not – it’s not clear from the reporting. Benefit payments are generally not generous enough to provide for material needs – they are also conditional on either finding work or providing evidence to show that they have been looking for work. There are often gaps between applying for a benefit and the benefit being paid, creating periods of acute need.

The point of the article is to show the rise of the working poor, those who have jobs, are hard-working, and yet still do not earn enough to rise out of poverty. There are more people living in the UK who experience in-work poverty now than people who experience out of work poverty. The gap between London and the rest of the country seems to be ever-widening with those in power seemingly oblivious to the reality of the situation.

Most people who are forced to use food banks are deeply embarrassed, and they are a response to a man-made problem, one that we can solve politically through mandating higher wages. We need a system that creates a society where those in work earn enough to cover their living costs and those who are unable to support themselves due to disability or illness are able to live their lives in a dignified manner with adequate support from the state.
Jan. 3, 2014 at 6:01 p.m.RECOMMEND14

Sinister LordUK
The payments have been reduced as they are no longer in line with inflation. Also new rules allow staff to ‘sanction’ benefit recipients who they feel have not been trying hard enough thereby cutting the only source of income in many cases and driving people to food banks. Staff are encouraged to do this via unofficial target setting.
There is a sustained rhetoric originating in government but slavishly parroted by a right wing UK media that talks of scroungers (them) and strivers (you) in order to divide society and to deflect blame from the true cause of suffering (gov’t cuts).
The immigration thing is simply another manifestation of this tactic.
The disabled have been hit especially hard as they have to be tested by far stricter benchmarks than previously in order to be judged ‘unfit for work’ and as a result losing sickness benefit and being forced into job-hunting with risk of sanction.
Then there’s the bedroom tax. I don’t know where to begin with this one; now if you have an unused room you have your ‘housing benefit’ deducted no matter how long you have been living there you will lose approx 15% of your rent payment simply for having a spare room. A major problem here is the simple fact that there are simply not enough single occupancy flats/bed-sits available to move into.

It is a many pronged assault on the most vulnerable in order to impose austerity and keep wages down for employers and so make UK more ‘competitive’ in the market.
