Giddens about the third way


  • Gratian Moldovan

    () ("Dimitrie Cantemir" Christian University)


This dynamic process of globalization does not refer to the environment only, but also to the social, economic and political connections that cross the borders between countries. Globalization is so complex that we might have to wait several generations to see in today causes the effects of tomorrow. European social-democracy closely circumscribes the ratio of inter-conditioning, inter-potentiation and complementarity between the spheres of individual and public life, workday flexibility, educational opportunities, environment, housing and economic democracy. Nations keep, and will keep doing it for the foreseeable future, the cultural, economic and government power on their citizens on the international arena as well . Globalization transforms the institutions of the societies we live in. Social democratic position polarizes concepts such as opportunity of equal chances, personal responsibility and mobilization of citizens and communities. A social democratic government aims for purposes such as fiscal discipline, health care reform, investment in education and training, assistance-through-job programs, urban renewal programs and a firm stand against crime and conviction.
