    Hayek schimpfte sie einst ein Wieselwort: Die soziale Marktwirtschaft. Noch bis vor kurzem sah sich das Konzept der Sozialen Marktwirtschaft heftigster Kritik ausgesetzt und wurde als ungeeignet angesehen, um den oekonomischen Herausforderungen im Zuge der Globalisierung begegnen zu koennen. Die aktuelle Wirtschaftskrise scheint dem Konzept jedoch neues Gewicht zu verleihen. Inwieweit eine Renaissance der Sozialen Marktwirtschaft jedoch moeglich ist, soll im Folgenden ausgelotet werden. (Hayek once called it a weasel-word: The social market economy. Only very recently, doubts rose again over the conception of social market economy and its ability to cope with the global challenges. How-ever, in the course of the economic crisis the conception has gained increasing importance. Highlighting the political interventions and modifications of social market economy as well as societal processes in recent years the article will demonstrate the threats to social market economy and discuss its possible renaissance.)
