DN Debate. Radical Policy silences the shouts of the renationalisation

We need a radical Policy. In order to be able to respond to the threats from the conservative cries of re-nationalisation is the time to turn the playing field and once again make the policy-making breakthrough. The defensive defence of the european idea and peace project is not good enough.

the Critics have the important points. Policy-making does not live up to its potential. Ahead of the elections to the european Parliament, we therefore suggest three areas where the EU needs to take a new leap forward: beskattningsfrågan, intervention and democracy. Our proposal requires no changes of the Lisbon treaty. They are for the present. For the impatient. For us.

1 New green beskattningspolitik. the EU should not direktbeskatta people's incomes. However, it is necessary to be introduced transnational system of taxation directed against different barriers to equitable and ecologically sustainable life, as, for example, the financial sector and carbon dioxide emissions.

the EUROPEAN commission already proposed in 2011 a tax on financial transactions. It is designed so that a low rate (0.1% on the fund and share trading and 0.01% on derivatives) is levied on transactions between financial institutions. The commission justified its proposal with that of the financial sector caused the latest economic crisis, but also, in principle, is untaxed. These are two good arguments. Perhaps even more important is the fact that capital markets have benefited from the EU-law system for the free movement of capital, while the financial industry with high-speed driving the growing inequality.

the Proposal is supported in the present by twelve member states, but not of the red-green government in Sweden. In its current form, the proceeds go directly to the member states ' own budgets. We are advocating that they instead go directly to the EU budget, which was the original idea.

what is needed instead is a european carbon tax. It can with advantage be combined with a european aviation tax.

Our second proposal, which does not have any model from the EU-commission, but which, however, are discussed all the livelier, is a european tax on carbon dioxide emissions. Carbon dioxide is considered by the OECD to be one of the more effective and cheap instruments to create a more environmentally friendly society. Sweden has such a tax, but how much does that help? What is needed instead is a european carbon tax. It can with advantage be combined with a european aviation tax. To impose such on the European level would be more fair than that different member states have their own solutions. There is no reason that the airline industry will continue to be cheap and hazardous, at the same time as the train journeys between European cities is expensive and environmentally friendly.

the Point is that these environmental taxes should go to the EU budget. We want the EU to a funding system that to a higher degree, get their revenues through different taxes than from member states ' EU contributions.

2 New policies for more equitable conditions. policy-making is best when it makes people lives easier, safer and more equitable. We therefore want the EU in the face of an individual job-search allowances, which shall be limited to the people who want to seek work in another member state than the one where they are staying. This means that the grant also will be used to return to the member state in which the person originally comes from. We want it to be possible to secure forms search work where it is. We want to make people's right to free movement, safe and accessible for all.

We want to introduce wage subsidies for workers in organic farming. The EU has a massive agricultural policy with the financial support of individual farmers and products. It needs to be modernised. In european agriculture, there are obvious problems with precarious employment conditions and a black labour market. Therefore, we want to have a wage subsidy for workers. This would mean that the production of organic and närodlad food can be developed and become available to more consumers at the same time that people can work in safe conditions.

We wish, therefore, that the EU in the face of an individual job-search allowances, which shall be limited to the people who want to seek work in another member state than the one where they are staying.

We want to introduce a european unemployment insurance during economic crises. Within the EU there are already funds that can provide member states and regions with support during economic crises. We want the contribution shall instead be paid directly to the individuals whose jobs have disappeared.

These individual contributions are examples of policies that can make life in Europe more secure, equitable, and ecologically. The EU currently has a number of structural funds, with the best will try to support both regions and sectors who find it difficult to cope on their own. We do not believe, however, that this creates a sufficiently strong connection between the EU and the people that the union is there for. The EU budgetsatsningar remain invisible in europeans ' everyday lives.

We suggest that taxes on financial transactions, carbon emissions and air travel to finance these contributions.

3 Radical democratisation. , to revitalize democracy, Europe's political parties to organise themselves more innovative. The european parliament's different party groups need to be developed to more genuine parties go to elections with the overall election manifesto and spetskandidater to the president of the commission. It must also be possible to create a completely new european parties. To the european Parliament last year said no to the supra-national lists we perceive as a mistake.

the european Parliament last year said no to the supra-national lists we perceive as a mistake.

the Link between the EUROPEAN elections and policy-making needs to be clearer. How the citizens are voting, shall be marked in a democracy, otherwise it remains, the connection to the political system weak and fragile. We need to move in a direction where the geopolitical slitningarna between different government receives less importance, and instead, make the ideological divisions in parliament to the ground.

But in the long term, need a progressive policy reform of the treaties, which, among other things, this means a transfer of power from government summits to the elected european Parliament. When the day comes, we are proposing that all EU citizens will vote on the treaty change on the same day and over the whole of the union. We who live in Europe need the more common democratic moment, then citizenship is manifested, and political consequences.

We who live in Europe need the more common democratic moment, then citizenship is manifested, and political consequences.

We want to find new methods for democratic participation in Europe's necessary problemlösningsarbete. We want to exercise our citizenship and build a better union. We want to take responsibility for our future. We need a radical Policy now!
