Rather than allowing ‘‘race to the bottom’’ competition, the EU’s regulatory regime required a ‘‘race to the top’’ (Vogel, 1997b) in terms of environmental, labor and technology standards from businesses. 24 DOROTHEE HEISENBERG The chapter is organized in four parts: the first section examines the EU’s economic policies of the mid-1980s to the present. The second part shows that although the effects of these liberalizing policies were thought to create economic harmonization in the Member States’ economies, significant variation continues to be the norm, blunting the argument that globalization creates ‘race-to-the-bottom’ harmonization.

But many – especially on the conservative side of the political spectrum – also accept the combination of great successes and inequalities that globalization creates. 15 Europeans, perhaps in reaction to living for centuries under highly unequal economic systems, perhaps due to a much higher population density that 8 PHILIP H. GORDON requires more cooperation within communities, and perhaps due to the generous welfare states they have come to rely on, are more skeptical. A third reason why globalization may be more difficult for Europe than for the United States is that it is often seen as a threat to local cultures – or at least to all cultures other than that of the United States.
