Sahra Wagenknecht is a leader of the Left party, Die Linke, in the German Bundestag and author of "Freedom instead of Capitalism."

Learning from other cultures is a strength, not a weakness. The University of British Columbia had a tuition freeze for 6 or 7 years and kept tuition at around $2300. An economics where everyone has the same view is unviable and becomes brainwashing.

Forever Number One is also a black hole of the global economy, a broken cistern that cannot hold water, a needy hegemon in a world no longer buying "financial products" and endless wars. Rich in things and poor in soul, the US is desperately in need of alternative economics, reduced working hours, sharing income and assets, community centers, person-oriented work, labor-intensive investment.and soft power. Investment, trade, distribution, taxation and labor policy must be changed so the future can be open, dynamic, human-friendly and environment-friendly. The inside of the cup must be cleaned, not only the outside of the cup. Signs of the times must be heeded, not only the signs of the wealther..
