Abstract

Die neuen Informations- und Kommunikationstechniken entwickeln sich zunehmend zu einem «Zukunftsmarkt Telekommunikation», der zwangsläufig wirtschaftliche, räumliche, gesellschaftliche und soziale Umstrukturierungen zur Folge haben wird. Vor diesem Hintergrund werden Fragen nach der Bedeutung telekommunikativer Infrastruktur als Faktoren analysiert, die eine unternehmerische Standortwahl entscheiden. Die Analyse und Interpretation der durchgeführten primär empirischen Erhebung bildet die Grundlage für die Zusammenführung und Bewertung der empirischen und politischen Befunde. Abschluß der Arbeit stellt ein umfassender regionalpolitischer Handlungskatalog dar.

Abstract

In the 21st century, Norway, Denmark and Sweden remain the icons of fair societies, with high economic productivity and quality of life. But they are also an enigma in a cultural-evolutionary sense: though by no means following the same socio-economic formula, they are all cases of a "non-hubristic", socially sustainable modernity that puzzles outside observers. Using Nordic welfare states as its laboratory, Sustainable Modernity combines evolutionary and socio-cultural perspectives to illuminate the mainsprings of what the authors call the "well-being society". The main contention is that the Nordic uniqueness is not merely the outcome of one particular set of historical institutional or political arrangements, or sheer historical luck; rather, the high welfare creation inherent in the Nordic model has been predicated on a long and durable tradition of social cooperation, which has interacted with global competitive forces. Hence the socially sustainable Nordic modernity should be approached as an integrated and tightly orchestrated ecosystem based on a complex interplay of cooperative and competitive strategies within and across several domains: normative-cultural, socio-political and redistributive. The key question is: Can the Nordic countries uphold the balance of competition and cooperation and reproduce their resilience in the age of globalization, cultural collisions, the digital economy, the fragmentation of the work/life division, and often intrusive EU regulation? With contributors providing insights from the humanities, the social sciences and evolutionary science, this book will be of great interest to students and scholars of political science, sociology, history, institutiona
