The essays in this volume have been translated from the German to bring to the notice of a wider public the contemporary views of a group of prominent German economists and lawyers who have all participated in the development of post-war economic policy in the Federal Republic of Germany. The essays deal with a wide range of problems including the control of monopolies, the welfare state and the need for self-help, the role of trade unions in industrial societies and the future approach to economic problems of both communist and capitalist countries. This is the first of two which is part of a two-volume series that examines the contemporary state of Germany's social market economy. The second volume contains a collection of ten further essays in which the authors assess the contribution of German Ordo-Liberals 50 years after the founders of the liberal movement in Germany stated their aims and objectives.
