AGENDA 2010: The Crisis of the Gennan Welfare State and the Need for Reform
In this paper I intend to examine how these principles exist today and the problems they present to the German economy when in conjunction with the current population shift. I will present these facts in light of the goals of the SPD (Sozial Demokratische Partei). The SPD is the party that is pushing for reforms and is also the party that has historically represented the interests of the working class. My own goal is to evaluate Agenda 2010, judging its worth in spite of the widespread controversy it has provoked, and the likelihood of its success.
