(p.95) 5 Productivism and beyond
After the New Social Democracy

Tony Fitzpatrick

Manchester University Press

This chapter discusses the differences between productivism and post-productivism in relation to social democracy. It shows that while post-productivism does not abandon the aims of increases in growth, productivity and well-being, it does recontextualise them in terms of what are called reproductive values. These values refer to the ecological and social conditions of a productive economy or conditions which that economy is increasingly unable to replenish. This chapter highlights the role of ecowelfare in guiding social democracy in the direction of a post-employment society.

Keywords:   productivism, post-productivism, social democracy, productive values, productive economy, ecowelfare, post-employment society
