Is kick­ing senior cit­i­zens out of nurs­ing homes good pol­i­tics? That’s a ques­tion GOP ask­ing itself these days. One of many ques­tions relat­ed to the pol­i­tics of health care. Although not many are ask­ing it since the pub­lic large­ly has no idea the ques­tion is being asked at all as recent polls show. With the Sen­ate’s ver­sion of ‘Trump­care’ final­ly released to the pub­lic, we’re now learn­ing that, yes, the GOP appears to think kick­ing seniors out their nurs­ing homes is good pol­i­tics. Because trans­fer­ring Med­ic­aid costs to states and indi­vid­u­als has been a key GOP goal of Trump­care’s con­gres­sion­al authors the entire time and nurs­ing homes are paid for by Med­ic­aid for the vast major­i­ty of peo­ple. So in addi­tion to the many pro­found moral ques­tions raised by the GOP’s health care ‘reform’ plans, a grow­ing num­ber of pro­found polit­i­cal ques­tions are being raised the more we learn about Trump­care as it takes form. Includ­ing whether or not putting nurs­ing home cov­er­age on a fis­cal death spi­ral makes for good pol­i­tics. Granny would prob­a­bly say ‘no’, but she’s got com­pe­ti­tion.

FTR #944 Fireside Rant: WTF Is Going On? The Caligulization of America and the End of the American Century

This broad­cast is a (prob­a­bly part­ly unsuc­cess­ful) sum­ma­ry attempt at explain­ing what will be the results of the ascen­dance of the Trumpenkampfver­bande in the U.S. It is to be hoped that this descrip­tion will go fur­ther toward explain­ing what is going on than the orig­i­nal pro­gram. In addi­tion to the excerpts of arti­cles pre­sent­ed in the pro­gram, we will sum­ma­rize some of the cen­tral argu­ments in the broad­cast, with links to oth­er pro­grams and lec­tures, where pos­si­ble.

In AFA #37, we dis­cussed the Gehlen “Org” and relat­ed ele­ments as a Tro­jan Horse, using anti-com­mu­nism to infil­trate the Unit­ed States and, ulti­mate­ly, destroy it from with­in. In this pro­gram we devel­op that analy­sis fur­ther, adding the role of the House of Hab­s­burg and asso­ciates to the Tro­jan Horse metaphor. When the U.S. frus­trat­ed the de-Naz­i­fi­ca­tion of Ger­many, opt­ed to ally with the remark­able and dead­ly Bor­mann cap­i­tal net­work and the asso­ci­at­ed Hab­s­burg roy­al fam­i­ly, and returned the Japan­ese and Ital­ian fas­cists to pow­er (with a civil­ian facade), this coun­try signed its own death war­rant.

Amer­i­ca’s entry into two World Wars, after the com­bat had pro­ceed­ed for years, decid­ed both con­flicts against Ger­many. The Amer­i­can rev­o­lu­tion was the first suc­cess­ful revolt of a Euro­pean colo­nial pow­er against its colo­nial mas­ter. Both Ger­many and the House of Hab­s­burg vowed nev­er again! Nev­er!

In this con­text, we observe that the Hab­s­burgs (roy­al house of the Aus­tro-Hun­gar­i­an Empire) ruled for six hun­dred years. Six hun­dred years ago–1417–was three quar­ters of a cen­tu­ry before Colum­bus sailed. To the Hab­s­burgs, Amer­i­ca is a blip. Democ­ra­cy is a blip. They see things in an entire­ly dif­fer­ent way. Because the U.S. was an unas­sail­able mil­i­tary pow­er and the most pow­er­ful econ­o­my on earth, the coun­try could only be brought down by sub­ver­sion from with­in. We gave the Under­ground Reich and the Hab­s­burgs the keys to the king­dom, not unlike the Prae­to­ri­an Guard–Germanic mer­ce­nary troops appoint­ed to guard the Roman Emper­or. Even­tu­al­ly they con­trolled the throne and pre­served the Roman Empire for as long as it could make lucra­tive pay­ments to the Ger­man­ic tribes who even­tu­al­ly defeat­ed and sacked Rome.

The thrust of the broad­cast is that the ascen­sion of Trump–an Amer­i­can Caligula–is indeed the end of what Hen­ry Luce called “The Amer­i­can Cen­tu­ry.” The author of our first arti­cle is a for­mer edi­tor for Time mag­a­zine and a for­mer State Depart­ment offi­cer, so his lit­er­al take on Luce’s pro­nounce­ment is not sur­pris­ing. What Sten­gel is talk­ing about is the end of “Brand Amer­i­ca,” to coin a phrase–the suc­cess­ful PR mar­ket­ing of this coun­try as the Land of the Free, Home of the Brave, etc.

That polit­i­cal mythol­o­gy, which com­pelled much of Mr. Emory’s ini­tial involve­ment in this research when he began in the ear­ly ’70s, will evap­o­rate. That dis­si­pa­tion, how­ev­er, will be eclipsed by the dev­as­tat­ing eco­nom­ic, envi­ron­men­tal, social and polit­i­cal dev­as­ta­tion that will sure­ly fol­low Trump’s poli­cies.

As Mr. Emory fore­cast in FTR #‘s 918 and 919, among oth­er pro­grams in the “Trumpenkampfver­bande” series, Trump’s anti-NATO rhetoric and gen­er­al dis­parag­ing of the Atlanti­cist alliances that have held sway dur­ing the bet­ter part of “The Amer­i­can Cen­tu­ry” are focused on pre­cip­i­tat­ing the Under­ground Reich goals of: an all-EU army replac­ing NATO, a Ger­man-dom­i­nate Europe assum­ing cen­ter stage in world affairs, and the forg­ing of an eco­nom­ic alliance with Rus­sia (fol­low­ing Russ­ian con­ces­sions on Ukraine) that will give “Cor­po­rate Ger­many” eco­nom­ic dom­i­na­tion over the Earth Island. A trade war with Chi­na, cou­pled with pos­si­ble mil­i­tary adven­tur­ism against that grow­ing giant, will sim­ply enhance its com­mer­cial and diplo­mat­ic grav­i­tas. Germany/EU will fill the vac­u­um, enhanc­ing their eco­nom­ic ascen­sion.

Our next arti­cle her­alds Mr. Emory’s prog­nos­ti­ca­tions. We do not feel Trump is nec­es­sar­i­ly con­scious of his role. In the age of mind con­trol, what goes on between a giv­en indi­vid­u­al’s ears is impos­si­ble to gauge, past a point. Among the var­i­ous and sundry dis­as­trous out­comes of Trump’s poli­cies may well be a cyber-ter­ror­ist inci­dent from a nation-state actor or a lone male­fac­tor, this the result of a fed­er­al hir­ing freeze. ” . . . On his first offi­cial day in office after inau­gu­ra­tion, Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump has made good on his plan to insti­tute a fed­er­al hir­ing freeze—part of his effort to slash the fed­er­al work­force. Details are sparse: Trump has said there would be excep­tions for the mil­i­tary, and a White House memo notes the freeze would be waived ‘when nec­es­sary to meet nation­al or pub­lic safe­ty respon­si­bil­i­ties.’ Some experts fear a tem­po­rary hir­ing freeze could exac­er­bate a chron­ic prob­lem in the fed­er­al gov­ern­ment: a wide­spread short­age of cyber­se­cu­ri­ty tal­ent. A hir­ing freeze could sig­nal to essen­tial cyber­se­cu­ri­ty talent—especially those who might con­sid­er join­ing the pub­lic sec­tor from high­er-pay­ing indus­try jobs—that there’s no need or desire for them in the fed­er­al gov­ern­ment, Alan Chvotkin, exec­u­tive vice pres­i­dent of the Pro­fes­sion­al Ser­vices Coun­cil, told Nextgov. . . .”

Exem­pli­fy­ing a dis­con­nect that is sure to help bring our econ­o­my down, Labor Sec­re­tary Puzder lauds the val­ue of machines over humans. While he is cor­rect that machines do not do many things that he sees as counter-pro­duc­tive, he ignores the fact that machines don’t by food at Car­l’s Junior or Hard­ees, the food chains for which he is chief exec­u­tive. No machine has ever bought any­thing. ” . . . Fast food exec­u­tive Andrew Puzder, who Pres­i­dent-elect Don­ald Trump is expect­ed to tap as labor sec­re­tary, has advo­cat­ed replac­ing some human work­ers with machines as a way for busi­ness­es to reduce costs asso­ci­at­ed with ris­ing wages and health-care expens­es. While machines require reg­u­lar main­te­nance and can some­times mal­func­tion, Puzder said, they are also eas­i­er to man­age than humans and don’t pose the same legal risks. “They’re always polite, they always upsell, they nev­er take a vaca­tion, they nev­er show up late, there’s nev­er a slip-and-fall, or an age, sex, or race dis­crim­i­na­tion case,” Puzder told Busi­ness Insid­er in March. Puzder serves as the chief exec­u­tive of CKE Restau­rants, the cor­po­rate par­ent behind fast food chains Hardee’s and Carl’s Jr. . . .”

When automa­tion, infla­tion of the price of con­sumer goods that are import­ed and have had tar­iffs slapped on them by “The Don­ald,” lack of health care forc­ing work­ing peo­ple to devote increas­ing­ly scarce resources toward main­tain­ing their and/or their fam­i­lies’ health, the sub­ver­sion of min­i­mum wage, over­time and union­iza­tion laws and statutes and increas­ing con­cen­tra­tion of eco­nom­ic own­er­ship have brought Amer­i­can con­sumers to their knees, our con­sumer-based econ­o­my will col­lapse.

Last­ly, we note some­thing that her­alds poor­ly for the response of the Amer­i­can peo­ple to the chaos that is sure to enve­lope this coun­try after the envi­ron­men­tal, eco­nom­ic and social chaos that will inevitably result from Trump’s roll­back of decades of nec­es­sary reg­u­la­tion, enor­mous bud­get deficits from the GOP’s tax cuts, neu­tral­iza­tion of decades of progress on health care and roll­back of the New Deal.

With Bet­sy De Vos appoint­ed as Sec­re­tary of Edu­ca­tion, the already dis­mal, fright­en­ing civic aware­ness of our pub­lic school stu­dents fig­ures to get worse. In and of itself, that is cause for extreme pes­simism. As our soci­ety dis­in­te­grates from the inter­play of var­i­ous eco­nom­ic, polit­i­cal and mil­i­tary fac­tors, the calls for “some­one to do some­thing” to repair our dys­func­tion­al soci­ety are like­ly to increase expo­nen­tial­ly.

“. . . . When, 2011, the World Val­ues Sur­vey asked US cit­i­zens in their late teens and ear­ly 20s whether democ­ra­cy was a good way to run a coun­try, about a quar­ter said it was ‘bad’ or ‘very bad,’ an increase of one-third since the late 1990s. Among cit­i­zens of all ages, 1 in 6 now say in would be fine for the ‘army to rule,’ up from 1 in 16 in 1995. In a dif­fer­ent nation­al sur­vey, about two-thirds of Amer­i­cans could not name all three branch­es of the fed­er­al gov­ern­ment or which par­ty con­trolled the House of Rep­re­sen­ta­tives. In a third study, almost half of the respon­dents said the gov­ern­ment should be per­mit­ted to pro­hib­it a peace­ful march. . . .”

Pro­gram High­lights Include: review of the Hab­s­burg role in Ukraine; review of Karl von Hab­s­burg and his UNPO; review of Karl von Hab­s­burg’s mar­riage to Francesca Thyssen-Borne­misza and, through that, the Bor­mann cap­i­tal net­work; review of the inti­mate prox­im­i­ty of the House of Hab­s­burg and the House of Liecht­en­stein; review of House of Liecht­en­stein cousin Mar­tin Wachter’s stew­ard­ship of a Bank al-Taqwa sub­sidiary; review of the Hab­s­burg prox­im­i­ty to the death of Antonin Scalia, which may have helped to solid­i­fy the GOP behind Trump.

Killing Granny: The GOP’s “One Size Fits All” Death Panel for Health Care

Change is com­ing to Wash­ing­ton DC. Most­ly hor­ri­ble changes. But as we’ll see in this post, there is one very sig­nif­i­cant and pos­i­tive change com­ing as a con­se­quence of the uni­fied GOP con­trol of the White House and Con­gress: GOP is actu­al­ly going to start get­ting the blame it deserves for all the dam­age its pro-oli­garch/an­ti-every­one-else agen­da rou­tine­ly inflicts upon the Amer­i­can peo­ple. Pol­i­tics can be frus­trat­ing for a myr­i­ad of rea­sons, but one of the biggest sources of frus­tra­tion is the cloud of per­pet­u­al obfus­ca­tion and con­fu­sion that tends to per­me­ate the polit­i­cal dis­course and col­lec­tive under­stand­ing of what’s actu­al­ly hap­pen­ing, why it’s hap­pen­ing, and who should be reward­ed or blamed for it. But for the next cou­ple of years, at a min­i­mum, it’s going to be very clear who to blame for the dam­age DC is about to unleash, and it’s not just going to be Don­ald Trump. And when it comes to health care “reform” (pri­va­ti­za­tion) that the GOP is about to impose upon the pop­u­lace, that blame is about to get dan­ger­ous­ly dif­fu­sive for state leg­is­la­tures and gov­er­nor­ships because the Health Care Aus­ter­i­ty Hot Pota­to is about to get tossed in their laps over and over. Indef­i­nite­ly. And since the GOP con­trols almost all state leg­is­la­tures and gov­er­nor­ships at the moment they won’t be able to pre­vent them­selves from slash­ing these pro­grams. So with the com­ing block grant­i­ng of first Med­ic­aid and then Medicare (or maybe both togeth­er), the pol­i­tics of health care is about to get weird. And trag­ic because the GOP won’t be able to help itself with all the aus­ter­i­ty

FTR #889 Intercept This! Compendium on Citizen Omidyar

Draw­ing togeth­er infor­ma­tion pre­sent­ed in numer­ous broad­casts over the peri­od of sev­er­al years, this pro­gram high­lights the endeav­ors of Glenn Green­wald’s journalistic/financial angel Pierre Omid­yar. Guid­ed by the Aus­tri­an School/free-mar­ket, neo-lib­er­al eco­nom­ics of Her­nan­do De Soto, Omid­yar’s “phil­an­thropic” efforts are close­ly aligned with covert action imple­ment­ed in con­cert with U.S. intel­li­gence cutouts such as U.S. Agency for Inter­na­tion­al Devel­op­ment, the Nation­al Endow­ment for Democ­ra­cy and the Ford Foun­da­tion.

Focus­ing on the Omid­yar Net­work’s SKS orga­ni­za­tion, the dis­cus­sion notes the bru­tal, lethal results of its micro-finance pro­grams in India. Omid­yar Net­work’s key Indi­an func­tionary Jayant Sin­ha, took time off to help direct the elec­tion cam­paign of Naren­dra Modi, whose BJP is a cat’s paw for the RSS, a Hin­du nationalist/fascist orga­ni­za­tion inspired by Hitler and Mus­soli­ni. Three quar­ter of Mod­i’s cab­i­net was select­ed from the RSS, to which Modi belonged. (Gand­hi was assas­si­nat­ed by a mem­ber of RSS.)

One of the key vehi­cles for Omid­yar Net­work’s “phil­an­thropy” in India is the Rur­al Devel­op­ment Insti­tute (renamed “Lan­desa”), devel­oped by Roy Proster­man. Proster­man’s RDI was a key fea­ture of the Phoenix assas­si­na­tion pro­gram in Viet­nam. Cit­i­zen Omid­yar has also helped to fund the return to pow­er of the OUN/B fas­cists in Ukraine, again part­ner­ing with U.S. intel­li­gence cutouts such as U.S. AID and the Nation­al Endow­ment for Democ­ra­cy.

Pro­gram High­lights Include: Mod­i’s pro­ject­ed roll­back of Indi­a’s laws against child labor; the sti­fling of free­dom of speech under Mod­i’s regime; the Modi gov­ern­men­t’s com­plic­i­ty in lethal anti-Mus­lim vig­i­lante actions; the neo-lib­er­al eco­nom­ic goals of Omid­yar Net­work’s “land acqui­si­tion” micro-finance projects; Omid­yar pro­tege Oleh Rybachuk’s par­tic­i­pa­tion in the Yuschenko gov­ern­ment; Rybachuk’s efforts to inte­grate Ukraine into NATO and the EU; Omid­yar pro­tege Svit­lana Zalis­chuk’s efforts to inte­grate Ukraine into NATO and the EU, men­tored by Rybachuk; Omid­yar pro­tege Zalis­chuk’s efforts on behalf of the lus­tra­tion laws, seen as the legal foun­da­tion for a broad-based purge; Zalis­chuk’s efforts pro­mot­ing net­work­ing between Ukrain­ian Nazi par­ties such as Svo­bo­da and the so-called “mod­er­ate” par­ties; Omid­yar’s part­ner­ing with the Nation­al Endow­ment for Democ­ra­cy to cre­ate a “fact-fund­ing” ser­vice; review of the devel­op­ment of the NED as a cutout for U.S. intel­li­gence by William Casey and the Rea­gan admin­is­tra­tion.

FTR #883 The Times They Have A’ Changed: JFK and the Steel Crisis of 1962

On the cusp of a new year–a Pres­i­den­tial elec­tion year at that–analysis of Pres­i­dent Kennedy’s han­dling of the steel cri­sis of 1962 illus­trates just how far we have descend­ed in the 50-plus years since his death. After bro­ker­ing an agree­ment between the Unit­ed Steel­work­ers union and Unit­ed States Steel aimed at hold­ing down infla­tion, Kennedy was blind­sided by Unit­ed States Steel, act­ing in con­cert with oth­er large steel­mak­ers and, behind them, the lumi­nar­ies of cor­po­rate Amer­i­ca. Where­as the union rank and file embraced a con­tract encom­pass­ing low­er wages, U.S. Steel prompt­ly announced a 3.5 per­cent price increase. Kennedy used the full force of the Fed­er­al gov­ern­ment against U.S. Steel, forc­ing roll­back of the price increase. This earned Kennedy the hatred of big busi­ness. Pro­gram High­lights Include: Hen­ry Luce’s “For­tune” mag­a­zine’s pub­li­ca­tion of an edi­to­r­i­al fore­shad­ow­ing JFK’s mur­der; big busi­ness’ view of JFK as a qua­si-com­mu­nist; the vig­or­ous action tak­en by Robert Kennedy’s Depart­ment of Jus­tice against the big steel mak­ers; JFK’s pub­lic exco­ri­a­tion of the lead­ers of Big Steel as ene­mies of the peo­ple; JFK’s re-direc­tion of defense con­tracts to small­er steel firms that had not raised prices.

FTR #858 The NED File

Extend­ing exam­i­na­tion of the most inap­pro­pri­ate­ly named Nation­al Endow­ment for Democ­ra­cy, the pro­gram high­lights that insti­tu­tion’s role as a direct exten­sion of U.S. intel­li­gence. In addi­tion to hav­ing financed the Maid­an coup in Ukraine, the NED has been posi­tion­ing itself to effect “regime change” in Rus­sia. One of the part­ners with NED in financ­ing the Maid­an coup is Pierre Omid­yar, Glenn Green­wald’s finan­cial angel and the head of EBay. Omid­yar is now part­ner­ing with NED to cre­ate a “fact-check­ing ser­vice.” Vladimir Putin has cracked down on NED and oth­er for­eign NGO’s that are polit­i­cal­ly active in Rus­sia, using the prece­dent of an Amer­i­can law that oblig­es polit­i­cal activists and orga­ni­za­tions financed from abroad to reg­is­ter as agents of for­eign gov­ern­ments. Review­ing infor­ma­tion from FTR #848, the pro­gram high­lights NED’s active pro­jec­tion of World War II-era fas­cists and Nazi col­lab­o­ra­tors into Lithua­nia, where the paved the way for the desta­bi­liza­tion of the U.S.S.R., as well as the polit­i­cal reha­bil­i­ta­tion of Baltic Waf­fen SS units. Pro­gram High­lights Include: the found­ing of the NED in con­junc­tion with William Casey under Ronald Rea­gan; Omid­yar’s spon­sor­ship of Svit­lana Zalis­chuk, a Ukrain­ian MP who is coor­di­nat­ing the inte­gra­tion of Ukraine into NATO; the Wash­ing­ton Post’s ide­o­log­i­cal swing to the far right.

FTR #850 Update on Fascism in Ukraine

Con­tin­u­ing our analy­sis of the resus­ci­ta­tion of Ukrain­ian fas­cism, we note the ongo­ing role of unabashed, cel­e­bra­to­ry heirs of the OUN/B in that unfor­tu­nate coun­try. Fol­low­ing an announce­ment by Ukrain­ian inte­ri­or min­is­ter Arsen Avakov that per­son­nel from the 173rd Air­borne Brigade would begin train­ing of the Nazi Azov Bat­tal­ion on April 20th (Hitler’s Birth­day), the U.S. House of Rep­re­sen­ta­tives vot­ed not to arm that unit. They made no objec­tion to the ele­va­tion of Pravy Sek­tor leader Dymtro Yarosh to be an advis­er to the head of the Ukrain­ian army. Head of one of the explic­it polit­i­cal heirs to the OUN/B in Ukraine, Yarosh led his fol­low­ers in an attack on a gay rights parade in Kiev. Pravy Sek­tor has also func­tioned as an enforcer for Ihor Kolo­moyskyi, one of Ukraine’s most impor­tant oli­garchs. Kolo­moysky­i’s pri­ma­ry place of busi­ness is the Ukrain­ian province of Odessa, which will now be gov­erned by Geor­gian expa­tri­ate Mikhail Saakashvili. Unable to return to Geor­gia because of crimes he appar­ent­ly com­mit­ted there, Saakashvili was very “busi­ness friend­ly” to the Pri­vat com­pa­nies con­trolled by Kolo­moyskyi. Pro­gram High­lights Include: Ukraine’s move to stan­dard­ize its mil­i­tary to NATO require­ments; the re-rout­ing of infor­ma­tion on nuclear weapons from the UK to Ukraine; a threat by Prime Min­is­ter Yat­senyuk to halt Ukraine’s pay­ments to cred­i­tors; charges against Yat­senyuk that he embez­zled up to 325 mil­lion dol­lars; Petro Poroshenko’s threat to invade Crimea; the appar­ent sys­tem­at­ic assas­si­na­tion of polit­i­cal oppo­nents and crit­ics of the Poroshenko regime.

FTR #848 Walkin’ the Snake in the Baltic States

In the Nazi tract “Ser­pen­t’s Walk,” the SS go under­ground, build up their eco­nom­ic mus­cle, gain con­trol of the opin­ion-form­ing media and, ulti­mate­ly, take over the Unit­ed States and the world, revers­ing polit­i­cal and his­tor­i­cal real­i­ty. In the Baltic states (as in Ukraine), we are see­ing just such a per­ver­sion of the polit­i­cal and his­tor­i­cal record. In Latvia, Lithua­nia and Esto­nia, vet­er­ans of the Waf­fen SS are suc­ceed­ing in por­tray­ing them­selves as “free­dom fight­ers,” as well as cast­ing the his­to­ry of World War II in a Nazi ide­o­log­i­cal frame­work. Fur­ther­more, they are impart­ing their ide­o­log­i­cal and oper­a­tional wis­dom to a younger gen­er­a­tion of Nazis. All of this is occur­ring with the acqui­es­cence of the EU, despite the fact that such activ­i­ties are against that body’s laws. The pro­gram con­cludes with a look at the pro­jec­tion of World War II fas­cists into Lithua­nia by ele­ments of U.S. intel­li­gence dur­ing the con­clu­sion of the Cold War, set­ting the stage for what is tak­ing place now.

O.S.S. Document: U.S. Intelligence Planned on Using Stephan Bandera Against U.S.S.R. in 1946

In FTR #777, we high­light­ed the adop­tion of Stephan Ban­der­a’s OUN/B by ele­ments of U.S. intel­li­gence to use as com­bat­ants against the Sovi­et Union. Hav­ing staffed SS and Gestapo ranks and par­tic­i­pat­ed in war crimes against Poles, Jews, Rus­sians and oth­er “racial unde­sir­ables,” this Third Reich ally con­duct­ed gueril­la war­fare against the Sovi­ets until the ear­ly 1950’s. A declas­si­fied doc­u­ment from the Office of Strate­gic Services–America’s World War II intel­li­gence agency and the fore­run­ner of the CIA–discloses that Ban­dera and his orga­ni­za­tion were tar­get­ed for recruit­ment in the imme­di­ate after­math of World War II. All of the con­tents of this web­site as of 12/19/2014–Dave Emory’s 35+ years of research and broadcasting–as well as hours of video­taped lec­tures are avail­able on a 32GB flash dri­ve.

The New World Ordoliberalism Part 3: About That Raise You Wanted...

Along with last week’s news of Ger­many’s record trade sur­plus, the open­ing of an EU inves­ti­ga­tion into Ger­many’s grow­ing sur­plus­es, and Europe’s oth­er recent remark­able socioeco­nom­ic achieve­ments, Angela Merkel urged the CDU to com­pro­mise on an across-the-board 8.50 euro Ger­man min­i­mum wage. It’s great news because wage defla­tion is still part of the EU’s long-term agen­da.
