This article tries to reconstruct and explain the principles of the ordoliberalism by Walter Eucken as a basis for the functional capacity of the social market economy. First, the author describes the orign concept of the ordoliberlism by Walter Eucken. Thereafter she analyses the principles as a mission statement of the social market economy and shows the reasons for the enforceable problem of ordo-liberal conception by Eucken. At the end she develops a combination of ordoliberal principles with a ordo-political economic conception.
