By Institut für bankhistorische Forschung e.V.,Deutsche Zentral-Genossenschaftsbank, DZ BANK AG

Zum Buch

Anhand von Porträts ihrer herausragenden Akteure führt dieses Buch in die bis ins 19. Jahrhundert zurückreichende Geschichte der Volks- und Raiffeisenbanken ein, ohne diese auf ihre „Wegbereiter“ Raiffeisen und Schulze-Delitzsch zu reduzieren. Einem modernen biographischen Ansatz folgend, spannen die Biographien einen weiten, über die individual hinausgehenden Bogen. Sie zeigen, dass die Entwicklung genossenschaftlicher Institutionen, über die weite Bevölkerungskreise Zugang zu Kredit und damit Anteil an wirtschaftlichen und gesellschaftlichen Aufstiegsmöglichkeiten erhielten, auf der Initiative Vieler beruhte und nicht ohne die Kenntnis der rechtlichen, ökonomischen und sozialen Rahmenbedingungen verstanden werden kann. So entfaltet dieser Band eine Gesamtschau der vielfältigen Einflüsse und Impulse, die von den porträtierten Persönlichkeiten ausgingen und zu Wegmarken in der Geschichte der Kreditgenossenschaften wurden.

Falce e carrello: Le mani sulla spesa degli italiani (con - download pdf or read online

By Bernardo Caprotti

«Sono passati sette anni e in molti mi hanno chiesto cosa fosse successo dopo l. a. pubblicazione del mio libro. Ci furono alcune reazioni che definirei scomposte.» (dalla Prefazione di B. Caprotti)

Bernardo Caprotti è l'imprenditore che ha portato all'eccellenza i supermercati in Italia. Ne ha fatto un caso di rinomanza internazionale, nel settore. A eighty one anni ha deciso di rompere il suo riserbo (niente interviste, niente fotografie, poche apparizioni pubbliche, tanto lavoro) e in questo libro-denuncia racconta ciò che ha dovuto subire according to mano delle Coop. Dai primi contatti con il gigante "rosso" della grande distribuzione fino alle polemiche degli ultimi mesi, il fondatore di Esselunga ricostruisce un confronto pluridecennale scambiato fino a poco pace fa according to normale concorrenza. Invece, mettendo insieme con meticolosità le tessere del mosaico, a Caprotti è apparso un disegno preciso: some distance sparire l. a. sua azienda dal mercato.
In questo j'accuse l'imprenditore documenta, end up alla mano, una serie di vicende che di primo acchito sembrano tentativi imprenditoriali andati a vuoto, nella realtà si rivelano parte di un censurabile piano strategico altrui. Giacché Esselunga non può essere los angeles sola vittima del "sistema". Dalla rigorosa esposizione dei fatti appare di tutta evidenza che molte iniziative di Esselunga sono kingdom affossate dalla Legacoop, il gigante economico agli ordini del Pci-Pds-Ds, con l'indispensabile appoggio delle amministrazioni locali di sinistra. Reperti etruschi usati come grimaldello, licenze lasciate scadere (ma prontamente girate alle Coop), terreni pagati sei volte il valore di mercato, condizionamenti di sindaci e assessori, persino uno scippo ai danni di una signora sopravvissuta al campo di sterminio di Auschwitz in keeping with realizzare una Ipercoop gigantesca in una città "proibita" all'Esselunga. Tutto è servito in keeping with bloccare l'espansione dell'imprenditore lombardo, che chiede soltanto di "servire", di poter fare il mestiere imparato da Nelson Rockefeller, di cui fu socio all'inizio dell'attività.

Operazioni che avevano richiesto anni di preparazione e ingenti investimenti gli sono country sottratte dalla concorrenza nel giro di poche ore. Fino a giungere alle pressioni di Romani Prodi su Caprotti perché los angeles sua azienda resti «in mani italiane»: cioè sia ceduta alle Coop. Una soluzione finale che aggiungerebbe l. a. beffa agli ingenti danni, morali e materiali, già subiti. los angeles galleria di fatti e personaggi (da Pierluigi Stefanini a Turiddo Campaini, da Mario Zucchelli a Bruno Cordazzo) è accompagnata da una documentazione inoppugnabile e inedita che Caprotti ha ora pazientemente ordinato. «Il mio braccio destro ripeteva che dietro certi episodi c'erano le Coop» - rievoca l'autore - «A lungo mi sono rifiutato di credergli. Oggi riconosco che aveva ragione».
