Actual fascist economics – note, economics, not the -ism itself- returns to Germany:
Professor Polleit said the relevant parallel is not what happened in Honecker’s hapless East Germany. “The risk is something more like the command and control system installed in the 1930s. They leave the ownership in private hands but there are ever more rules, ordinances, taxes, and subsidies, used to influence what can be produced and to regulate prices,” he said.
“Scholz doesn’t represent what the SPD actually stands for. My concern is that many Germans don’t yet understand what the policies really entail. We will move ever further away from what remains of the free-market system,” he said.
We also know someone who would have such a system here:
The ultra-radical youth leader Kevin Kühnert and his “Juso” brigade crowned two obscure figures from the Corbynista wing as joint leaders.
That is rather what Corbynism is. As too Murphism. Hinesism as he once complained I was near libelling him for pointing out. There’s a definite tinge of this to Mazzucato as well.
Do note, again, that this is not to say those folks are fascist. But it is to point to how their economic desires do seem to creep up very close to actual fascist economics. The State controls because, well, isn’t it obvious that the State should control? In the national interest of course?
