This volume is organized around Swedish and Austrian models of social
partnership, the welfare, economic policies and neutrality policy with
special focus on developments since the end of the Cold War. There is a
stronger trend towards changes in Sweden within the process of
decorporization with a more intensive change into more pluralistic
decision making models. In GDP per head Austrian economic performance has
been more successful. On the other hand, Sweden succeeded better than
Austria in reaching more equal income distribution. Both countries seem to
continue the neutrality policy track.
