Editorial 31: Economic exile.
The experts assure that the disappearance of large vertebrate herbivores or carnivores, would not cause a risk to the continuity of life on Earth. However the disappearance of fungi, bacteria and other single-celled animals and plants, whose function is to create basic food or recycle organic matter, would mean the end of life on Earth. If we apply, this simile, in economic matters small and medium companies in the agricultural, livestock and service sector are, like basic living beings, the real economy (the basis of life) and their destruction leads to crisis or economic death of countries.
In the last years, though with particular intensity in recent months, the media and declarations of supposed political leaders are full of grandiose statements about risk premiums, bank bailouts, cuts in services and other macroeconomic denominations. While small and medium business has been experimenting to an unprecedented predatory activity with elevated property taxes, value added tax, social security fees, fuel and energy taxes, taxes on bank transfers and many others by government. This predation, simultaneously with delay in refunds of value added tax to exporters and tax staff performance management and labor work, is seriously threatening the lives of small and medium enterprises are those that guarantee the continuity of the territorial distribution of wealth and social equity.
Even is being sold to public opinion through the media controlled by public or private property controlled by subsidies, as a success of government policies, increased exports to exceed 30% of the GDP of many countries. This success is actually a complete failure and a proof that small and medium enterprises to be threatened by predators are looking for their life on the outside. You have no doubt who prey and make grand speeches, which are responsible for thousands of economic exile.
The economic exiles are not aim of any protection by governments, in fact, have created or supranational organizations, they are victims of as predatory and criminal policies as political exiles. But in contrast to political exiles, who want to return to their countries, economic exiles is difficult come back as the economic life requires an environment continued and based on a legal system that allows them to survive for generations.
