Squaring the welfare circle and government ideology : Greece and Spain in the 1990s by Victor George( )

2 editions published in 1999 in German and English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This article examines the "squaring of the circle" thesis and its usefulness to our understanding of welfare developments in Greece and Spain in the 1990s. The welfare state in both Greece and Spain was expanded considerably in the early 1980s by the newly elected socialist governments, only to hit the buffers of diminishing resources and rising demands in the late 1980s as well as the hostile neo-liberal welfare ideology. The process of welfare expenditure was halted in the 1990s, labour market deregulation was encouraged and containment of welfare expenditure became the dominant aim of government policies. This article concludes that governments of both the Left and Right in both countries attempted to "square the welfare circle" mainly through reductions in the supply of welfare.--SCAD summary
