Dimensionen wirtschaftlicher Integrationsprozesse in West- und Osteuropa nach dem Zweiten Weltkrieg

Werner Plumpe / André Steiner
Published Online: 2016-08-13 | DOI: https://doi.org/10.1524/jbwg.2008.49.2.21


Leading motif for the article is the lack of serious historical research regarding the economic integration processes in Europe since the end of World War II. It starts with a closer look at the economic theory to examine its practicability to explain integration. The article continues with an investigation of the various phases of economic integration in the East and in the West after World War II. In addition to that, continuative questions are raised. The paper’s major hypothesis is, that integration in East and West was led by political issues rather than by questions of economic efficiency. In light of this, the limited economic effects are actually not surprising.
