3.  R epercussions of right-wing populism for European integration Ann-Cathrine Jungar INTRODUCTION In 2014, as elections to the European Parliament (EP) approached, populist parties with nationalist, fascist, and Eurosceptic agendas were expected to meet with great electoral success. In this chapter, I analyse right-wing populist parties in Europe: their policies, their relationship to their voters, and their possible impact on the orientation of the European project. The title of this book highlights the economic and social disparities within and between EU

, and their essays exhibit a high degree of theoretical rigour. Although international in scope, the focus is on the United States, and the Superfund statute, which regulates clean-up of toxic waste sites, receives particular attention consistent with its importance especially in the litigation of environmental disputes. US public policy today (and, to a lesser extent, that of other countries – but the gap is narrowing) is highly receptive to economic analysis. Just as populism has receded as a point of resistance to an economic approach to antitrust policy, so

24  Radical politics in post-crisis Hungary: illiberal democracy, neoliberalism and the end of the welfare state Noemi Lendvai-Bainton Neoliberalism’s burden – as a resilient, responsive and deeply reactionary credo – is that it can never remake the world in its own image. As a result, it is doomed to coexist with its unloved others, be these the residues of state socialism, developmental statism, authoritarianism, or social democracy. (Peck 2010, p. 16) INTRODUCTION This chapter interrogates the intersectionality of populism, nationalism and authoritarian

market has been remarkably closed to Asian exports, even technologically sophisticated ones, and the EU’s trade policies clearly preclude any efforts by East Europe to copy the textile and footwear factories of Asia or Korea’s burgeoning steel industry. Because the EU is the focus of East Europe’s economic strategy, even if the United States market could be tapped as an outlet for the products of an East European effort to imitate Asia, it is unlikely that this would be viewed as a positive impetus for East Europe’s efforts to join the EU.

’ of politicians. It is not a weakness of persons but a built-in weakness of the system, that is, of the prevalent variety of democracy. Mending this weakness would entail grave amendments to formal democracy to increase its outputlegitimacy, for example by creating new institutions for building up ‘knowledge’ and ‘responsiveness’ in Etzioni’s sense as cybernetic, that is, governance factors. If opportunistic decision-making is the core weakness of contemporary democracy, the most insidious threat to democracy appears to be populism. Populism is a close systemic

in neoclassical economics, even though, in the United States, its reputation suffered from being associated with the bimetallist and inflationist populism of William Jennings Bryan during the 1880s and 1890s. At this time the quantity theory also became the starting point for a body of business cycle theory, which explained this phenomenon as mainly caused by fluctuations in the quantity of money. However, even the quantity theory’s most ardent supporters, for example Fisher (1911), noted that the interaction between money and prices over the course of the cycle

and debates surrounding the political and social movements of the nineteenth century that we now call the Grange movement, and its transformation into the broader political movement that we think of as Populism. But this movement had largely peaked and even begun to subside by the time Veblen came of age as a scholar (Veblen published his first scholarly essay in 1891 and his first book in 1899). With hindsight it is now evident that Populism’s political energy had largely dissipated with the end of the deep depression of the mid-1890s, and the end of the long

may be other countries following, depending on future election results – even France. After the elections in the United States in November 2016, there is more uncertainty than ever about the future relations between the EU and the US. This may concern first of all trade issues, as well as common security and defense policies. But the core issue, running across most of the other challenges, is a wave of rising populism. A growing number of movements, parties and individuals suggest simple and simplified answers for complex problems. People who are irritated about
