The economic policies of German 'third wayism' in the light of agenda theory

No 11, Working Papers on Economic Governance from University of Hamburg, Department of Socioeconomics
German Social Democracy is faced with tremendous challenges of societal and economic changes: party dealignment, a bourgeoisifying of society, the rise of media democracy and economic and cultural globalisation. The party's reaction - a third order change in its ideological objectives and a respective adjustment in its short term policy programme as the leading governing party in the red-green coalition (AGENDA 2010) - is being investigated under the conditions of bounded rationality of voters and against the backround of an unprecedented loss in acceptance by the electorate as well as the ordinary party member.
