Theresa May, new approach globalisation that does not ignore the working classes.

Le scénario de la mondialisation heureuse suppose tout d’abord que des pays comme le Canada soient à même de maintenir durablement leur position dans les secteurs à forte valeur ajoutée.

Or, la Chine ou l’Inde sont capables à terme de développer eux aussi (et à moindre coût) une production dans les domaines de haute technologie (informatique, télécommunications, biotechnologies, nanotechnologies…).

« Si le capital et la technologie migrent là où le travail est le moins cher,
 il n’y a plus d’avantages comparatifs »

L’argumentaire pro mondialisation n’est pas recevable, en second lieu, parce que le nombre des emplois supprimés par la désindustrialisation est de toute évidence très supérieur au nombre des emplois générés par la nouvelle économie mondialisée (dans les secteurs de la haute technologie, de la finance …)

Ce temps est maintenant révolu. Car l’ouverture des frontières n’a pas pour seul effet de laisser entrer des produits à bas coût. Assez rapidement, elle met sous pression les salaires, notamment via le chantage à la délocalisation.

Et comme la baisse des salaires n’est jamais assez importante pour concurrencer la main-d’œuvre chinoise ou mexicaine ou indienne, elle débouche in fine :

Sur la destruction des emplois et la désindustrialisation progressive du pays.

Nous en sommes là ! Et encore, le terme de désindustrialisation ne donne pas la juste mesure du phénomène et les services sont également touchés.

Après la baisse des salaires, c’est plus de salaires du tout !

Il faut être réaliste, si un Chinois, un Mexicain ou un Indien possède un QI aussi élevé et aussi productif que nous, et il en coûte 3 à 5 moins chers que nous. Dans l‘esprit de la mondialisation ou seul le coût de la masse salariale est prise en compte, quel sont nos avantages :

Aucun !

Theresa May, the Prime Minister

Donald Trump's shock victory shows that the Government must deal once and for all with the "overlooked" communities that have been transformed irrevocably by immigration without the "permission" of British voters, Theresa May will say.

In her first significant assessment of Mr Trump's election, the Prime Minister will say that his victory shows the need for a “new approach to managing the forces of globalisation” that does not ignore the working classes.

And she will launch a forthright attack on business figures who “appear to game the system” and “work to a different set of rules”.

In a thinly-veiled critic of figures including Sir Philip Green and Mike Ashley, the Prime Minister will warn that some company bosses are “undermining” the “reputation of business as a whole”.

Speaking at the Guildhall in London on Monday evening, Mrs May will refer to Mr Trump’s victory and say that it – and the Brexit vote in Britain – show that “change is in the air”.

She will warn that the desire to promote globalisation has led to voters on low incomes being “overlooked”.

And she will warn that immigration must be tackled in the wake of the Brexit vote to show communities across the country that politicians are willing to “respond” to their concerns.

The Prime Minister will say: “We can’t deny – as I know you recognise – that there have been downsides to globalisation in recent years, and that – in our zeal and enthusiasm to promote this agenda as the answer to all our ills – we have on occasion overlooked the impact on those closer to home who see these forces in a different light.

“These people – often those on modest to low incomes living in rich countries like our own – see their jobs being outsourced and wages undercut. They see their communities changing around them and don’t remember giving their permission for that to be the case.”

·       She will describe Brexit as an “opportunity” for Britain to “step up to a new global role” and take a “new approach to managing the forces of globalisation so that they work for all”.

·       Mrs May will also use the speech to continue her attacks on big businesses that the Government believes are not playing by the rules.

·       The Prime Minister has previously made clear that she wants to curb excessive executive pay and that she wants to force companies to put workers on their boards.

“So often over our long history, this country has set the template for others to follow,” the Prime Minister will say. “We have so often been the pioneer – the outrider – that has acted to usher in a new idea or approach.

“And we have that same opportunity today. To show the world that we can be the strongest global advocate for free markets and free trade because we believe they are the best way to lift people out of poverty… but that we can also do much more to ensure the prosperity they provide is shared by all.

“To demonstrate that we can be the strongest global advocate for the role businesses play in creating jobs, generating wealth and supporting a strong economy and society… but that we can also recognise when a minority of businesses and business figures appear to game the system and work to a different set of rules, the social contract between businesses and their employees fails – and the reputation of business as a whole is quickly undermined.”
