Languages of publication
A This article addresses the question of social consequences of the present financial and economic crisis in Europe. Firstly, it considers the process of implementing fiscal consolidation measures taken in selected EU countries, including substantial cuts in welfare payments and benefits. Secondly, it reviews a few signs of rethinking the dominant paradigm of development and philosophy of social policy which also result from the recent turbulences in global and European markets. Thirdly, the author concludes that the future of the European Union itself may be subject to important changes, including possible transition from the monetary union to a budget and social union.
