in the new EU Member States."
|Mr. DI Josef Riegler, Vice-chancellor AD and Honorary President |
Ökosozialen Forum (Austria), treated the "Eco-Social Market Economy:
a project for justice and peace."
But how to put the above into practice? The main issue is the compatibility of ecological and social aims with the principles of a market economy. The crucial question is: which framework conditions have to be created so that the dynamics of a market economy move within borders that are imposed by ecological and social aspects. Politics for the economy and for the society needs a clear regulatory framework. This is now more important than ever.
