Social Democracy in Neoliberal Times

After the Second World War, the major political affiliations in Austria, the conventionalists and the reformists, which compose the Grand Coalition Government, agreed to prioritise growth strategies. This undertaking was relevant to the strengthening of nation-building and the recovery from shocks such as excessive inflation and high unemployment. To elaborate on the experiences and the counteractive actions of the Austrian administration, this chapter describes the state's economic performance and development indicators grounded on an international comparative paradigm and the Austro-Keynesian model (which mainly examines economic stability with respect to social relations, the labour force, and exchange rates). The discussion ends with the enumeration of limited scope, threats, opportunities, and potential modifications in the policymaking process.

Keywords:   post-Second World War, Austria, growth strategies, economic soundness, Austro-Keynesian model
