How to Get from Here to There?

  • Jörg Huffschmid

Abstract

The economic potential of the neo-liberal agenda in the EU is limited. It is unable to organize long-term growth in the EU and increasingly the strategy simply amounts to the redistribution of income and wealth from the bottom and middle ranges of society to the top. This has high and increasing costs and is not sustainable in the long run. The destructive impact of neo-liberal policies in the EU was demonstrated and criticized in the first part of this book. There are reasonable economic and social policy alternatives to this harmful strategy. Some of these alternatives were outlined in the second part of the book within the framework of the European Social Model.
