Firstly, after the Second World War, strong economic growth in some European countries led to a vast influx of immigrants from the periphery of Europe into its centre. Secondly, the collapse of the Soviet Union was a far-reaching consequence of political and economic reforms as well as intra-European migration. Moreover, the incorporation into European Union of the post-Soviet countries facilitated the solution of easier immigration. Ceaseless flow across borders is a cogent reason for endless transformations in political, economic and cultural aspects in Europe.

Elsewhere, Gray (1998; in Block, 2004, p. 26) discusses the results of this combination of the old philosophy and new means. He sees the new globalized economy in the form of the Washington Consensus2 as fundamentally destructive, leading above all to the dismantling of the welfare state, which so characterised the economically advanced countries in the world over the second half of the twentieth century.
