The unpredictability of the economic driving the State to impotence, everything should be temporary and transient settings, demand and investment is confused with abuses of financial speculation unleashed under the without reason and lack of scruples that led to the latest crisis.

Reagan in United States and Tache in England should be remembered, as they mark the penetration of neoliberalism in the techno-structures of power. Decreases the power of the State and the key factor is acute: the internationalisation of capital. Globalisation national economic spaces are increasingly constrained.

Two examples may be sufficient: a financial market restricted to few important places and the immense accumulation of dollars from China. If we recall the relocation of the production of goods to sites with cheap labor we can affirm that a transnationalisation of production has occurred.

This is part of the evident crisis of political institutions and the collapse of the so-called leaders. This identity crisis occurs because the common values jump through the air. The nation tends to be breaking down and its protective packaging also called State.
