 +
 +===== PP-CAT: =====
 +
 + ​PROPOSAL 4: Financial transaction tax [PP-DE: Economic and Financial Policy]
 +
 +We support the establishment of taxes to international financial transactions,​ one of the causes of international financial instability,​ which generate huge amounts of speculative profits with little or no contribution to public budgets.
 +
 +PROPOSAL 5: Eradicate tax havens [PP-DE: Economic and Financial Policy]
 +
 +We request the EC and other relevant international organisations to take action against tax havens, which mainly harbour fortunes of illegal, criminal and dubious origin.
 +
 + ​PROPOSAL 7: Limit the salaries of top executives to N times higher than the lowest company'​s salary [PP-DE: Economic and Financial Policy]
 +
 +The rise in income inequalities between the richest and the poorest segments of society is a cause of social fracture and is not justified by any convincing incentive justification. We support a policy debate in the EU to discuss an acceptable range of income inequality (e.g. 1:12) and the ways to implement it.
 +
 + ​PROPOSAL 14: Economy to serve the people [PP-DE: Economic and Financial Policy]
 +
 +We challenge the prevailing ideology that identifies wellbeing and social development with increased production and consumption of material goods, a model that cannot by any means be extended to the whole world population of the world and threatens the environmental sustainability of the planet. We support a social debate for the search and development of alternative options - economy of the common good, decreasing growth proposals, etc. - which challenge the rationality and feasibility of the present ultra-productivistic model.
 +
 +PROPOSAL 15: Preserve the Welfare State [PP-DE: Economic and Financial Policy]
 +
 +The Welfare State is one of the key contributions of the EU to our world. It is founded on an implicit social contract which expects that the well-off are willing to contribute to the overall social expenditure with a larger proportion of their income than those with low incomes. This social contract is being abandoned by the most affluent, with the support of governments,​ which back their efforts to avoid making a fair contribution to the public budget (SICAVs, tax havens, regressive taxes, etc). We PIRATES want this trend to be reversed.
 +
 + B) Marshall-Plan
 +
 +We urge you to use another expression instead of Marshall Plan, because it wasn't an economic plan based on solidarity. It was a strategic plan from USA to get privileges over weak countries. It doesn'​t fit the spirit of the proposal.
 +
 + J) European Economic and Monetary Union (additional points proposed for the PPDE draft)
 +
 +We believe that the tradicional role of the banking and financial system was and should be to support the smoth working of the real productive (and consumptive) economy. However, the financial sector has at present become something closer to a global casino as its main objective is to carry out speculative activities with a short term benefit that have become one of the main causes of the global financial instability and of the present economic crisis. We therefore want the financial sector to be much more transparent and well regulated to serve the needs of the economic system and society at large.
 +
 +K) Taking Into Account the Interests of Small and Medium-Sized Companies (proposal to add the following introductory statement to this section of the PPDE draft)
 +
 +The EU should be more active in enforcing anti-monopoly and pro-competition policies.
 +
 +
 +===== PP-SE: =====
 +
 + 1.11, 1.12 & 1.13 agricultural policy, social policy and economic and financial policy Remove everything on agricultural policy, social policy and economic and financial policy.
 +
 +1.14.1.3 Privatisations only after a Referendum remove paragraph
 +
 +1.14.1.5 Social and Ecological Standards remove paragraph
 +
 +1.14.1.6 Trade Agreements Between Trading Partners With Huge Economic Disparities remove paragraph
