도전받고 있는 ‘앵글로-색슨’ 자본주의

슈타인브뤽씨는 – 독일의 현 재무장관 페르 슈타인브뤽 – 독일의회에서 가진 한 인상적인 발언에서 “검은 9월”이후 더 이상 세계는 이전의 세계와 같지 않을 것이라고 말했다. 그는 “금융시장을 개화시키고” 투기자들을 강력히 단속할 수 있는 총체적인 제도의 법제화를 요구하였다.
In a remarkable outburst at the German parliament, Mr Steinbruck said the world would never be the same after “Black September”. He demanded a sweeping code of regulations to “civilise the financial markets” and clamp down on speculators.

“미국은 글로벌 금융시스템에서의 수퍼파워적인 위치를 잃게 될 것이다”라고 그는 파워가 지구상으로 퍼져 나감에 따른 다극의 질서를 예견하면서 이렇게 말했다.
“The US will lose its superpower status in the global financial system,” he said, predicting a new multi-polar order where power is spread across the globe.

프랑스와 독일의 중견 정치인들은 최근 몇 주간 시장 체계에 대한 급격한 조정을 요구했었다. 런던 시티 – 브뤼셀에서는 “카지노”로 알려졌던 – 에 적대적이었던 한 힘 있는 EU의 한 파벌은 이번 위기를 되돌릴 수 없는 변화를 강행시킬 수 있는 보기 드문 기회로 생각하고 있다.
Senior politicians in France and Germany have in recent weeks called for a radical shake-up of the market system. A powerful EU faction that has always been hostile to the City of London – which is known in Brussels as “the casino” – see this crisis as a rare chance to ram through irreversible changes.

“그들은 모든 회사와 동업자들의 자본수준을 규제하고 경영권 취득을 제한하고 자산박탈을 제한하기를 원한다. 간단히 말해 그들은 자본주의의 앵글로-색슨 버전을 규제해서 절멸시키고 싶은 것이다.” MEP(Member of the European Parliament:유럽의회 멤버)이자 UKIP(영국독립당:영국의 극우정당)의 경제 대변인인 존 휘대커의 발언이다.
“They want to regulate the capital levels of every firm and partnership, limit takeovers and regulate asset stripping. In short, they want to regulate the Anglo-Saxon version of capitalism out of existence,” said John Whittacker, MEP and UKIP’s economic spokesman.

슈타인브뤽씨는 앵글로-색슨 세계의 단기이익이나 엄청난 보너스에 대한 동기가 수십 년이래 가장 참담한 위기를 낳은 뿌리라고 말했다. “투자은행가들과 뉴욕, 워싱턴, 그리고 런던의 정치가들은 이를 기꺼이 포기하려 하지 않을 것이다.”라고 말했다.
Mr Steinbruck said the drive for short-term profit and huge bonuses in the Anglo-Saxon world was the root cause of the gravest crisis in decades. “Investment bankers and politicians in New York, Washington and London were not willing to give these up,” he said.

현재 도전받고 있는 것은 앵글로-색슨 자본주의, 금융자본주의, 탈규제, 월스트리트, 런던시티, 기축통화로서의 달러, 과도한 경영진 보수 등이다.
