Example text

For Thurow, the European status quo has further economic implications: With both average and minimum wages high, European firms invested in the capital equipment necessary to raise efficiency and survive paying the wages they have to pay, but they have no interest in expanding employment in Europe. Total costs are simply to high relative to those being paid in the rest of the world. If a business needs to expand, there are more profitable, lower-wage places to do so. […] Continental Europe essentially managed to protect the wages of those who remained employed […] but at an enormous cost in higher unemployment and lost jobs.

In the case of international networks, a company’s production process itself is divided between several countries where employees work on certain components of one and the same product. Economists speak of “integrated international production”. The most usual forms of this are (a) the so-called global sourcing, for instance in the automotive industry: different parts of one car are produced in different parts of the world — depending on where the production of a certain car component is cheapest.

Workers are redisciplinized by ‘economic’ arguments and their rights are surreptitiously cut. The result is the destruction of the European model of the welfare state. Even if we do not accept Bourdieu’s rather extreme position, the main point of his argument (as well as Sennett’s) cannot be denied: what makes unemployment such a crucial societal and political problem is not only the 10 or 11 per cent unemployed (in the case of the EU) but, over and above this, the fundamental anxiety affecting the other 90 per cent.
