"Modell Deutschland" once admired has lost worldwide, much of its shine due to a number of internal and external factors. This important and timely volume deals with the economic and political pressures and challenges of globalization and is particularly concerned with their effect on social policy, labor markets, environmental policies and technological change. Distinguished academic experts and leading politicians, including the new Chancellor, Gerhard Schroder, the Minister of Defence, Rudolph Scharping, and the Minister of Finance, Oscar Lafontaine, discuss these problems from an international perspective and against the background of debates currently going on in Germany.
