I am a German economist (MA) and live since 2003 in France. Since then I am unemployed because I am politically (that is illegally) persecuted by the German authorities. These persecutions and terrorisations sometimes abominable, going on by now for more than 25 years have seriously damaged my health.

Nevertheless, I am working on my project MIME – A Marxian Introduction to Modern Economics. In this context I have published dozens of articles which are accessible on my Internet site as well as my SSRN Author Page: http://ssrn.com/author=1182224.

With more than 2000 downloads of my articles (SSRN plus RePEc) I belong to the top 10% of the authors of the SSRN database.

Investment Contributions Against Austerity
SSRN Database : http://ssrn.com/abstract=2262696

The trivial insight that capital accumulation is a socially necessary activity but under capitalist institutions left to the private profit motivated considerations of the financial capitalists leads to the proposal to introduce investment contributions and collective investment funds, democratically controlled by the wage and salary-earners. In this way the full-employment policies can be assured and in addition the funds can be used in the context of the euro area to balance out intra-euro-area trade deficits via direct investments in the deficit areas to increase their productivity. The wage-earner investment funds should in the end crowd out capitalism.

Key words: economic democracy, full-employment policies, investment contributions,
