This chapter gives an introduction and a survey of the book. It presents a short summary of the discussion about flexicurity economies in Europe. In addition it identifies the three pillars on which a flexicurity economy should rest. They concern labor market institutions, the underlying educational system and the process of elite formation in democratic societies. The chapter also points out important contributions from the seminal works of Marx, Kalecki-Keynes and Schumpeter and characterizes the focal points on which this book concentrates.
