Social Democratic and Socialist Policies
In this Working Paper, also an entry for the International Encyclopedia of Public Policy, John King begins with a brief discussion of the meaning of ‘socialism’ and ‘social democracy,’ from their nineteenth-century origins down to the present day. He then discusses socialist economic policies under six headings: the case for public ownership; the importance of macroeconomic stability; the demands of social justice; arguments for tax reform; the need for environmental sustainability; and the obligation to exercise international responsibility. He concludes that socialist and social democratic policies offer a genuine intellectual alternative to neoliberalism.
