The ‘four economic freedoms’ and life quality. General tendencies and some hard lessons for EU-27-Europe

Listed author(s):
  • Tausch, Arno

For many years, EU-27-Europe’s political-economic strategy was characterized by an intensive opening to the forces of globalization and the realization of the ‘four freedoms’ of goods, capital, labour and services on the EU-27-European ‘internal market’. The present article is a 175 nation, 26 predictor variables study about the determinants of 12 sub-processes of life expectancy, infant mortality and other social cohesion variables in this context. Our detailed studies confirm a globalization critical paradigm and let us expect negative consequences for the overall EU-27-European health situation as a consequence of the current global economic crisis.
