The Crisis in Development and the Enlargement

  • José Luis Sampedro
Part of the Studies in the Integration of Western Europe book series (SIWE)


Any proper analysis of such long-term processes as integration and development would compel us to formulate some hypotheses, always arguable as well as hazardous, and thus usually eluded. The assumption is usually made that the present system is not to change, and that development will proceed within the present economic order, conceived as the best possible one in spite of its defects. The crisis, though severe, will pass as others have done before. Any divergent opinion is rejected a priori as utopian or self-seeking.
