Die Krise der sozialen Sicherung und die Globalisierung – Politische Mythen und ordnungspolitische Wirklichkeit

Author

Abstract

Globalisation means increasing locational competition and factor mobility and thereby endangers current welfare systems, especially the developed welfare states in Western Europe. Technological as well as political developments make institutional alternatives more and more easily available. Competition between welfare systems shows more clearly inherent economic problems of welfare states. Institutional competition is often interpreted rather as a danger for welfare positions once achieved than as a widening of institutional choice. Groups and states under pressure from competition become more and more interested in restrictions of competition and interventions in the market process to guarantee specific economic results.
