visualizes new approaches to humane economics, experiments with radical strategies for social justice, and offers possibilities for becoming active in the quest for a fair economy.Turbo-capitalism based on permanent growth is responsible for the exploitation of our lebensraum and the prevailing social injustice. Both are a threat to an open society and democracy. This is why it is important to point out alternatives in theory and practice. What - and to what degree - are we able to change global economic policy? How can each individual make an effort to promote a more just world? With the project ourconomy, the artist Lucia Dellefant is developing strategies for a visionary economy.
By the skilful shifting of its profits to tax havens, IKEA pays virtually no corporate tax in Germany. By means of these tax-evasion systems used by globally operating corporations, billions of euros in tax revenue are lost to the European Union and Germany that are urgently needed for education and social welfare.
In this country, IKEA does not contribute to the financing of the welfare state and public infrastructure, which, however, the furniture house takes advantage of as a matter of course in promoting its social image. Therefore, you are offering IKEA a free service. Give the Swedish furniture company the chance to rectify their legal but unfair tax-evasion practices until the EU states have introduced unitary taxation!
