In the News (from The Guardian): “Why the wheels fell off Germany’s economic model” – “There is a worldwide financial and economic crisis and Germany has been very badly hit because of its long-standing policy of wanting to become the world’s number one exporter,” explains Berlin’s deputy mayor and economy minister, Harald Wolf. “There has been a dramatic drop in export orders for industry and that will have appalling consequences for jobs….”
This is because German firms have worked hard to remain competitive in world markets in recent years and to make high-quality products that people want to buy. Exports accounted for 60% of German growth in recent years. The flip side is that it is has gotten slammed now that other countries don’t want to buy from Germany any more.
My Comment: The world has to give up high quality goods since the world bears down to the lowest common denominator – the average one. The global and integral nature of the new world is pushing us to this state.
Throughout history, there have been revolutions that tried to bring about this state of balance, to “average out” humanity so that there wouldn’t be the diverse classes of the rich and the poor. This was done so everyone would have all they needed for existence but no more, since excess is prohibited by Nature.
