The Social Democratic Welfare State

(p.276) 11 The Social Democratic Welfare State
Social Democracy in Neoliberal Times

Evelyne Huber

Oxford University Press

For the past twenty years, welfare states using social democratic policies together with other welfare countries have been under a lot of stress. This chapter makes a comparison between the magnitude of the pressures between the social democratic welfare states and other types of economies; and it considers the means of how to shift from the changes created by social democratic laws to new and broader economic situations. To respond to these questions, the chapter starts with an understanding of the basic features of the social democratic regimes as opposed to the welfare-state eras, along with its consequences on the eradication of poverty and inequality. The chapter follows by drawing connections between the various production processes and the periods under the welfare-state, and by classifying key transformations in the international economy.

Keywords:   social democratic parties, welfare states, reforms, economic regimes, poverty, inequality
