Richtig ernst könnte es werden, wenn die EU London die billionenschwere Abwicklung von Finanzgeschäften untersagt

Frankfurt/Wien – Alle paar Tage die gleiche oder ähnliche Nachricht: Banken mit Sitz in London kündigen an, Jobs nach Frankfurt, Paris oder andere Finanzmetropolen in der EU zu verlegen. HSBC, UBS, JPMorgan, Deutsche Bank und viele andere große Institute werden hunderte, in einigen Fällen sogar tausende Stellen in Großbritannien streichen. Ob London mit einem Abgang von Finanzleuten im kleinen einstelligen Bereich davonkommt oder ob der befürchtete Exodus bevorsteht, hängt stark von einer Frage ab: der Zukunft des Euro-Clearings. In der Finanzwelt werden allein am Devisenmarkt billionenschwere Geschäfte abgewickelt – am Tag, um sich gegen Währungsschwankungen oder Zinsveränderungen abzusichern oder von Kursentwicklungen zu profitieren.

That is not journalistic snark but a statement of fact, based on warnings from prominent Republicans and Democrats, notably in the Senate. Den Rest des Beitrags lesen »

The shadow chancellor’s comment provoked scorn. Yet Marx becomes more relevant by the day

AN UNOFFICIAL rule of British elections holds that you don’t mention big thinkers. On May 7th John McDonnell, the shadow chancellor, broke this rule by mentioning not just any old big thinker but Karl Marx. “I believe there’s a lot to learn from reading ‘Capital’,” he declared. The next day Jeremy Corbyn, the Labour Party leader, described Marx as “a great economist”.

This produced jubilation on the right. The Daily Telegraph dismissed Messrs McDonnell and Corbyn as “the Marx brothers”. The Daily Mail reminded its readers of the murderous history of communism. David Gauke, a Conservative minister, warned that “Labour’s Marxist leadership” was planning to turn Britain into a “hard-left experiment”. He added for good measure that Marx’s thinking is “nonsensical”. Den Rest des Beitrags lesen »
