Description:

This paper argues that globalization has had some striking consequences for the people of Great Britain, for the people of Europe (principally Western Europe) and for the social policies geared towards assisting them. At the same time, though, it must not be thought that the British welfare state has contracted because of the pressure brought to bear upon it by globalization; if anything, the recent evidence is that it has grown under the Blair government. However, whether or not the "improved" social welfare state is actually benefiting the victims of globalization is another matter entirely. In any event, the next several pages suggest that globalization has been a negative force in the lives of working-class people and that, even if it has not quite led to the contraction of social welfare policies in Europe and in the UK, it has certainly served as the external impetus keeping governments from doing all they might on behalf of the less-fortunate. As a final point, the paper asserts that France has been relatively more resistant to the de-centralizing forces of globalization than either Britain and Germany, but there is simply no evidence that any of these three major countries have been able to escape the neo-liberal pressures of the global marketplace.
