Unequal Europe

Regional Integration and the Rise of European Inequality

Jason Beckfield

  • Argues that European integration causes the convergence and retrenchment of European welfare states
  • Shows that regional integration has important effects on European welfare states and income inequality in Europe over and above those of globalization
  • Develops the concept of "technocratic capitalism" as an interpretation of a predominant form of capitalism in the EU over the last thirty years
