Summary: As political decay of capitalism takes hold, for example, of the United States and the Eurozone, Germany seems to have the best potential to become the leader of the current technological revolution. Unless the common sense behind Fordism (“the common sense behind” is not repeated but intended from here on before both Fordism and Jobsism) is replaced by Jobsism (after Steve Jobs), the current path towards a Second Middle Ages capitalism will continue under the status quo. Germany is well ahead to be able to take the leadership under the Jobsism agenda to get the Eurozone out of its deep systemic crisis, while renewing to a capitalist system without social and environmental externalities, but it needs France to buy in. France will need to let go Fordism in its regulatory systems, by starting to exercise complete and fully functional deregulation, for example, in electricity under Jobsism, even now that French economist Jean Tirole was awarded the 2014 Nobel Price of Economic Sciences, for his work on regulation which is however restricted by Fordism.
