The Welfare State and the Economic Freedom. An Attempt to Find a Consensus in the Discussion on Efficiency and Equity
Languages of publication
The issues of efficiency and equality are key in the discussion of the state’s role in the economy and every day life of citizens. The discussion takes on greater importance in times of economic crisis, when it is more common to exert pressure on raising the commitment of public money in the economy. Adherents of the essential role of the state say that it is necessary to raise all donations, benefits and transfers for the most needy while liberals disagree, saying that the less the state interferes in the economy, the better off the people will be. The aim of this article is to show each side’s arguments and to make an effort to find a consensus in the discussion of efficiency and equality.
