How should economies grow?
Max-Planck-Institut für Gesellschaftsforschung, Köln
SummaryEconomic growth is fundamental to the stability and legitimacy of capitalist economies and a central concern of public opinion. Yet growth strategies are not generally the subject of political contestation or competition, and in normal times the politics of growth models tend to go unnoticed. As the example of Spain shows, that can change in the aftermath of dramatic events and economic crises.
