Mar 25, 2013: Against a background of financial market crises, growing government debt levels, ageing populations, the euro crisis and wage competition from Asia, does the welfare state still stand a chance? In their commemorative publication for Hans-Werner Sinn marking his 65th Birthday, Kai A. Konrad, Ronnie Schöb, Marcel Thum and Alfons Weichenrieder and others examine the crisis scenarios and look beyond economic developments to socio-political perspectives. They discuss how investment in education and work, along with social cohesion and national identity, can become sources of prosperity and growth.
