Since the 1920s the main currents of workers' movements have pursued a project of reform. Those movements were able to yield substantial accomplishments in the 1960s and '70s. At their most radical, European welfare states took essential aspects of modern life-education, health care, utilities—out of the market by making them public, free, and universal. In many countries there was near-zero unemployment over two decades. This discussion will consider social democracy's accomplishments, its limitations, and why everywhere it has seemingly gone into retreat.
