Title: Europe from a point of view of economic-cultural orientations (Position paper)
Authors: Tjaša, Živko
Keywords: economic-cultural orientations
economic-cultural convergence
Issue Date: Nov-2005
Abstract: EU member states are in the process of convergence, especially in the economic sense, which is being supervised by the Maastricht convergence criteria before entering the European monetary and economic union. Many speculations have been made, that the European cultures are converging as well. But is this really the case? Are EU member states becoming “one big happy European family” in cultural perspective? We tried to solve this puzzle by using empirical evidence in (economic)-cultural and economic context. In our research we have combined soft variables with hard economic indicators. By analyzing the database European Values Study 1999/2000 and World Values Survey 1990/1992 we selected 16 cultural and 5 economic-cultural variables (identical in both, thus suitable for comparison). They were compared on a national level for 22 European countries (12 old EU member states, 8 new EU member states and 2 candidate countries).
