... simply because they want it all for themselves
France, Germany and Italy enthusiastically welcomed the proposal by the president of the European Commission, Jean-Claude Juncker, to limit China's ability to buy European businesses in strategic sectors such as infrastructure, high technology and energy, according to Reuters.
Juncker proposes should be given the tools to European governments in order to block direct investments in Europe, especially if they are coming from governments or government-sponsored businesses.
That is, the companies from Italy that took the Greek trains, from Germany that took telecommunications and airports, and France that have targeted the water supply networks for years, are calling Greece not to be sold off to other countries. Only to them.
And as it is known, the Laissez-faire of the Europeans, as well as of the Americans, stops where the interests of the national bourgeoisie of each country begin.
The decision is expected to trouble the forces of the European 'Left', which, due to its internationalist tradition, is got used to be sold off to everyone.
But there is also concern among the forces of Greek neoliberals who for years have been seeking arguments to support the perception that selling your state-owned enterprises to state-owned enterprises of other countries helps the 'entrepreneurship' - a word that they have not yet managed to translate in Greek!
Recently, Emmanuel Macron and his corporate bourgeoisie arrived in Greece to loot whatever they can.
We pointed out the enormous hypocrisy of the French officials. All this time since the beginning of the Greek crisis, the neoliberal vultures of the French political establishment had to pretend that they support Greece against the German cruel behavior. From François Hollande to Pierre Moscovici and Emmanuel Macron today, they did absolutely nothing to prevent Troika (IMF, ECB, European Commission) catastrophe that left the Greek economy in ruins.
They let the Germans, Schauble and IMF to play the bad guys and do all the dirty work. First, when Merkel sacrificed Greece to save the Franco-German banks. Then, when the suitable conditions were implemented according to the Greek experiment, so that the French corporate neo-colonialists could come and grab whatever they could.
