Politics/Government/Government Policy/Crouch: as a result of a "race to the bottom", in which labour law, taxes and the quality of public services deteriorate in a battle for effectiveness, three developments occur: 1. public services are increasingly organised in market form, 2. only those functions of services of general interest are taken over that are not of interest to private firms.

StreeckVsCrouch: the main reason for the control limits of the democratic state lies not in its economization, but in the deregulation of market processes and the streamlining of administrative processes that are politically desired. Thus it is not the economy, but politics that bears the main responsibility for the denationalization of services of general interest, the privatization of public services, and the transition from the tax state to the debt state.(1)
