(p.1) Introduction
After the New Social Democracy

Tony Fitzpatrick

Manchester University Press

This introductory chapter discusses the theme of this volume, which is about the new social democracy (NSD) and about imagining a social democratic future that diverts from the NSD. It examines how social democracy can be reinvigorated. This volume also explores the conjunction of social democracy and post-productivism and discusses the main parameters of ecowelfare ideas. It argues that social democratic capitalism, in its synthesis of economic prosperity, political participation, social justice, and cultural maturity, represents the best form of society that humans have yet managed to create for themselves.

Keywords:   NSD, social democratic future, social democracy, post-productivism, ecowelfare, economic prosperity, political participation, social justice, cultural maturity
