A not-at-all insignificant question is how all those politicians and "experienced" and renowned economists couldn't predict the present financial crisis in order to take the necessary measures and reduce its painful results that we face everyday in this hard life.
Lets return to the past for a bit. One can conclude that the economically liberal system of laissez faire laissez passer (Capitalism), the "open markets", only benefited the ruling class and the interests of those that diachronically live like parasites on the expense of the workers, inside each respective global financial system. Economical liberalism can be traced back to Adam Smith, the main representative of this school. The industrial revolution brought huge changes and made Britain a hegemonic power (Pax Britannica). One of those changes was the so-called "free market" system that was adopted by Britain and it was claimed that the system was in line with the ideals of the Enlightenment. The advocates of this system supported the claim that increasing commercial deals between the nations would work to prevent the declaration of a war, because a war would bump on mutual interests generated by Capitalism. Thus world peace would be strengthened and the free market would find a way to ease the inequalities and injustice on the expense of the weak in this planet.
Allow me to call "bullshit" on those claims by proving my initial claim, that the Capitalist system maximizes the benefits of the ruling class. For this I quote the death 30-50 million workers in India, in China and Brazil from starvation. How could India, a large grain-producing nation, find herself in this despicable position? Of course, due to Capitalism. The British refused to intervene because they were convinced that "the free market will fix the problem". But what truly happened? Simply, the British ruling class, being able to buy grain at higher prices, left the food-producing Nation to mourn so many dead.
Yet another sad example is the death of 10 million Africans in Congo, when the Belgian king Leopold II, in an effort to maximize his fortune from the harvest of raw rubber (caoutchouc), even resorted to amputations, in order to subjugate the locals, bringing the people to a general disrepair. We observe an expansive imperialism covered by a strong "idealism". Maybe the days of Pax Britannica bring in our minds the present situation? Pax Britannica was succeeded by Pax Americana, with more or less the same methods. the irony is that when this happened, Britain abandoned economical liberalism and adopted a system with bigger state interventionism, the protectionism of internal production against imports. A common denominator in both empires was the Anglo-Saxon puritanism.
Long story short, we conclude this short revision regarding the birth of a system that was created by the "Few" to serve the "Chosen".
The financial crisis of 1977 in eastern Asia is known among every economical and generally political circle. As Thailand was in the midst of unprecedented growth, when some investors decided to withdraw their capital and investments, which resulted in the Central Bank of Thailand devaluating her currency, the Bat. This cause a chain reaction that affected countries known as "financial miracles" or "Asian tigers", like South Korea that was forced to call the IMF for help. One of the IMF's terms is the liberation of the economy, and even more intense economical liberalism, what we call "neoliberalism" and zero state intervention. One wonders how big was the involvement of private American corporations, since they were the beneficiaries of this crisis and they even contributed in the creation of the circumstances for the financial collapse. The pressure of the IMF to reconstruct the Asian system helped the multinationals maximize their profits even more, leaving millions of people in poverty and desperation.
This destructive liberalism, the unstoppable and fast influx of capital, the corruption of the government, were some of the basic causes of the 1977 crisis. These events that history teaches in the economical sector were known among the governors of this betrayed Nation and ought to recognize the malevolent plans of the international usurers and move accordingly.
However, the way the crisis was faced by some governments, projects the state as the basic acting factor within the global System... One more irony is the stance of the basic advocate of neoliberalism, the USA, when in 2008 and amidst the crisis in their financial system, they faced the economical colossus of DubaiPortsWorlds. The government of George Bush informed the colossus, that wanted to buy American ports, that this isn't going to happen, citing national security reasons and a law existing from 1988. Likewise, the tactics adopted by the governments of Argentina, Brazil and South Korea, when they decided to put a stop on the uncontrolled influx of capital in order to maintain a stable exchange rate and therefore keeping the ability to practice an industrial policy, and more recently the nationalization of the banks in Iceland, are some moves that show us how serious states act when their national interests are in danger.
State interventionism and particularly financial -and not only- nationalism is the only choice we have to help the People that are struggling to save themselves. The state mechanism put forward the national Flag, an act that even in the area of international diplomacy can't be accused but can shake the foundations of the international agents. The international system is anarchically structured, and that reminds us the need of every state to work for its interests, which is the interests of every citizen and the nation above all. The corporations should never have more power than the state because they have to follow the orders of the states, which means that the only ones to blame for the rampant march of the multinationals, those that have made the states into puppets, are the corrupt politicians don't provide any form of control on the movement of the capital. We can observe that the states adopt a policy convergence tactic, without having the ability to exercise an autonomous economic policy. The current economical system can only be characterized by the increased structural power of the capital.
The current liberal financial system forces the governments to find new methods and institutions able to manage the results of the unstable system and of the financial crisis that hurt the Peoples so much. Golden Dawn is the only movement that has proved she works for the benefit of the Nation and the Race, and with her Program proposes solutions that will support our production, reinforcing the primary sector, the Greek farmer, to finally become self-sustaining in basic products, and then move on to rebuild the Greek heavy industry.
