Poverty, hunger and leaflet: Greater parts of the US population are threatened by an economic disaster, class differences
The negotiations between the Republicans and the Democrats over the increased unemployment insurance of 600 US dollars per week last. The positions are so different that they are difficult to overrun, reports Politico. The subsidy of the US government to unemployed help ran out of last Friday.
From the point of view of World Socialiste Web Site The differences are not rough enough to promote the negotiations with the necessary political will. For both the party of Democrats like the Republicans and the Trump Administration had the same class interest and were in principle the same goal pursuing: millions of workers about the threat of poverty, hunger and leaflet "to force back to work to produce profits for the capitalist class, whether they engraving the risk of the Corona virus pandemic."
The figures, which present the website to the consequences of the reduction of state grants, give clear signs for the fact that an economic catastrophe threatens coarse parts of the US population: Since the moratorium for observational breakdowns of tenants in buildings, the moratorium for observational breaks off last week the federal government were secured, "could be about 18 million of 44 million tenant households in the USA".
According to estimates of a consulting and investment banker, eleven million households have fluttered to flutter into the house in the next four months. Bitter prospects prophesent Barry Gray in the German edition of the WSWS
The deletion or shortening of the subsidy aid will lead to a significant increase in hunger and even hungry death in the USA. Already almost 40 million people are out of it, they can not afford their aspirable rent or mortgage payments. During the week, the on 21. July ended, almost 30 million people explained, they had not had enough to eat.
You can argue about this duster prognosis, including whether the different negotiation positions between Democrats and Republicans to continue the Corona exceptional help, which also reproduces the report of Barry Gray, politically in one and the same class stew.
But to reality, whereupon in the English-language report of the socialist website is made aware: that the average member is in the US Congress of Millionar. This results in another view of the hard ones that meet the masses, so the website.
The average congressman is noticeable as the lightest disquiot or sympathy that meant the shortening of extra payment for unemployment understatement for the masses, it sees Patrick Martin. He also has a suitable speculence for his thesis, namely the US finance minister Steven Mnuchin, who treats the million unemployed as a herd and scattered on a comb.
The unemployment expense "overpaid", so multimillionar mnuchin. The unemployed was only part of the work, less help is exactly the incentive they have to do in this sense, Mnuchin has already looked several times and with this view, which is widespread as a hard / incentive principle worldwide, he is not alone , not in the US.
If there are also incentives, there are also non-socialist ocons the approach that there are economically better goods to support the unemployed in such a drastic crisis in order not to continue to drive the economy by saving, caution and fear in a depressive direction (that For example, here is set out here in a variable short).
As a remarkable assessment of the exclusive worldwide trips of wealthy, the Financial Times report should be referred to a report of the class struggle in the title. In the article "So class strings", The newspaper refers to descriptions, such as super-rich in the Hamptons, the Corona-related failure of exclusive summer camps compensated by expensive events with tennis art and competence consultants on their coarse estate and reveluber.
That the Wall Street Journal is an article with a splendid self-lob – "The families created activity tarpaulins who gave their children structure, Exercise and Entertainment and some recovery for the parents" – Last week on page one raised ("cover"), shortly after dramatic figures of the US economic crisis were known, the author of the financial newspaper wisted to their readers at many weekends with their magazine "How to Spend It" The beautiful expensive life suggests.
Such a report at this time was given every unemployed person enough reason to fetch a wist fork and to drive the Hamptons, so the author. The article of Wall Street Journals (WSJ) became the rage more food than any "Guillotine meme". Also this perspective goes off by a narrow viewing angle. The WSJ is probably only read by a particular class and be taken seriously.
