ho does not know the fairy tale ´Rumpelstiltskin´ by the Grimm Brothers
, a story in which a small dwarf apears a beautiful queen to assist her in the transformation of straw into gold. He demands the first born child of the queen, is softened by her tears after the child is born, and tells her that only if she guesses the name of him after three days that she would be able to keep her child.
Just like the mysterious dwarf in the fairy tale, the German government in Berlin is also very willing to help increase it's revenues all over the world, and is especially known in Greece for claiming the appropriate return for such help.
Even to this date, the Federal German Government repeatedly provides the central bank of the EU with plenty of cheap money so that it can pass the tremendous funds on to other countries in Europe with low interest rates, and who in return shall then stimulate an economic impulsein their regions - building roads, houses, airports, railway lines, electrical- and mobile networks. Renewing their infrastructures.
Because if money is cheap and interest rates are low, then everyone immediately runs to the bank, borrows money, and starts with the planning, screwing, and building, so the theory of the many miracle-projection economists from anno domino.
One could almost believe that this strategy of the Federal German Government and the Central Bank of the EU is a noble and genuinely humanistic all-embracing help for the entire world, and in particular for countries like Spain, Italy, and of course Greece. But in reality, there is something very different behind this plan, and about which of course one hardly hears and reads anything in most of the mainstream media these days.
Governments provide services to their inhabitants and receive the corresponding income from them via taxes. In some countries more, in others less. In Germany, these incoming revenues of the government are one of the highest in the world, and a big chunk of this governmental income is related to the corporate taxes, which are attributed to the tax payments of the numerous private enterprises, as well as the many state owned organizations. These entities are a main focus of the German government because these organizations pay their many employees, and who then of course produce another big chunk of income for federal and state governments through their personal income taxes.
General speaking, in order to keep the revenues of the government in Berlin high, the companies' tax payments must be kept high at all costs. This can only happen when companies are able to achieve high sales revenues and profits in their bookkeeping since this will not only maintain a steady flow of corporate tax income, but will also increase the employment numbers and hence the income from the many personal taxes. As a consequence, any imaginable regulation had been initiated in Berlin and/or Bonn over the recent century in order to help propel the many German corporations into their current position in the global world.
No wonder that since, with, and through the ´support´ of the two world wars, Germany became one of the winners of the industrialization beginning around 150 years ago, and continues to be so: the enormous machinery industry is still the overwhelmingly dominant factor of today’s German economy.
With all its related and connected industries and service sectors, with all its many supplying companies, the many vehicles, machineries, construction cranes, trucks, military and health instruments made in Germany account for about 80% of all germanic economic output.
And the German machines do not just remain in Germany, of course. They are exported to all over the world. In return, goods of relatively low value are imported back into Germany from other countries. That is why Germany calls itself the so-called 'Export World Champion' every other year or so. Not because of their soccer boots, but because of their high-quality machines and without which the world seem to not want to live - at least that is how the German machine-marketing-experts suggest it their customers all over the planet.
This is basically how things have been for over one hundred years without anyone being able to see or hear Rumpelstiltskin dancing around the fire.
But since the late seventies of the past century, Rumpelstiltskin was slowly unmasked piece by piece. An industry called Information Technology was born, manifesting itself with totally opposite values as the expensive, physically tangible machines. These non-tangible instructions made of invisible electrical impulses in computers continue to astonish the world more and more. Some areas previously reserved to the physically tangible machines were replaced by software entirely - such as nuclear tests, which today are done completely by computer simulations. The software programs became more and more powerful and comprehensive, so that not rarely it is the software nowadays that has become more valuable than the machines themselves - and which are oftentimes pushed into the second row, receiving only programmed instructions from the ever increasing complex software.
The latest evidence for these developments became apparent in the once-Germany-dominated auto industry by self-driving cars. Powerful, intelligent software algorithms monitor the car's driving and control it - even without a human driver. Even if these autonomous driving cars and their artificially intelligent software algorithms exist only for a few years, their constant developments and improvements will probably be difficult to stop as long as the flow of electricity will not dry up. Even deadly accidents with self-driving vehicles involved will probably change little. The early stages of the aviation industry had to face similar challenges. It is expected that human-caused car accidents will by far outnumber accidents caused by self-driving cars.
What is to be expected over the next years can be heard and seen in the video below. It includes partially already realized concepts such as self-driving autopilots, electronically-engined, self-driving trucks (!), or the part-time car: a shared automobile for several people which is automatically managed by software, and which autonomously drives to the doormat of one of its many owners on demand.
In addition to this first exposure of Rumpelstiltskin beginning in the 1970's came that in recent decades other nations such as China were also able to figure out how to build machinery and instruments at large scale - and in equally high quality like the German Rumpelstiltskin.
Rumpelstiltskin got a few brothers and sisters beside them so to speak, who also wanted to dance around the fire. It needed to make space for others, and share parts of the Queen's treasure. The German Rumpelstiltskin did not like that at all.
Finally, since the election of the 45th US President, Rumpelstiltskin was completely exposed to the world. Donald Trump tweeted
on May 30, 2017 to the invisible German Rumpelstiltskin:
The result is a Germany in a tight spot - especially regarding it's almost catastrophic demographic developments
expected in the near future. And his answer is fatal. It stomps further with it's foot on the ground, and continues to instruct the EU central bank to send even more cheap money to the banks in Greece and who-knows-where-to, hoping that others continue a build-up of their infrastructures - initiations of economic impulses that no longer require a massive hiring of workers like 100 years ago, but instead a massive purchase of expensive machinery made in Germany to do the actual work.
Consequently, it is these high-quality engines, cars, trucks, cranes, construction site instruments, medical equipment, military parts, and other machines 'Made in Germany', that secretly propel Germany and it's machinery producing corporations to become export world champions, and hence the true winners from Berlin and EU ignited push-button-boosting-attempts of foreign economies - sometimes after an economic collapse, at least after a cultural revolution in these countries.
In Spain, this monetary fascism igniting from Germany and also from France led to a so-called 'real estate bubble' in 2007, meaning an excessive construction of houses and apartments on the Spanish peninsula that
nobody really needed, but which were built by many companies and business men and women simply because of suddenly very easily available money at the Spanish banks. This in the hope of profitable return of investments in the future - high-flying projections which collapsed a few years later when nobody really wanted to buy them in Spain, simply because hardly anyone really needed them in that volume.
And just recently, another dark secret of Rumpelstiltskin was exposed: it had purposely manipulated the exhaust software in many of its German vehicles, so that his automobiles could continue to be considered the very best in the world.
Almost like in the fairy tale of Rumpelstiltskin. The Queen's messenger finds out that a small dwarf dances around a fire in the forests at night, and again and again sings the following:
Today I bake, tomorrow brew,
The next I’ll have the young Queen’s child.
Ha! Glad am I that no one knew
That Rumpelstiltskin I am styled !
Thanks to her messenger, the queen could keep her child. And Rumpelstiltskin tears himself up in his rage with the words:
The devil has told you that !
