The Impact of Values

Jan W. Van Deth

Oxford University Press

The main element of a macro setting for micro politics in advanced industrial societies is the effect of increasing economic development on increasing levels of government activity. The chapter provides a brief overview of these twin processes, looking first at several aspects of economic development over recent decades and its correlates in terms of rising levels of education, increasing mobility and communication, and the position of women in society, and then at corresponding growth and shifts in government intervention over the same period. The final part of the chapter looks at the characteristics of the political processes in Western Europe in terms of involvement and protest.

Keywords:   economic development, government intervention, social mobility, Western Europe
