La fin du modèle européen ?
This paper deals with the consequences of structural reforms on the European model or models of capitalism. It critically analyses the reform ideology and isolates some of its foundations. Some empirical results questioning the relevance of these foundations are proposed. It emerges from the analyses presented in this paper that the social support to structural reforms can be interpreted more easily along the lines of a traditional class cleavage than according to the concepts proposed by the modernisation theories. These cleavages have measurable consequences in the segmentation of the political supply. The difficulties encountered by the reform processes reflect the conflict between different models of capitalism. A tentative solution to this conflict such as “flexicurity” is probably not up to the task.
