The European Socialists and Social Democrats text on employment (1999) reads: "We must create the confidence to boost investment and to overcome the present slowdown which undermines prospects for growth and technological modernization not only in the short, but also in the long run. We call for a new policy mix at monetary, wage, fiscal and tax policy. The aim is to improve the potential for innovation and growth, and to create a more active and inclusive society. The old hire and fire policy will be replaced by economic reform. Confrontation will be replaced by social dialogue."< Global Exchange is a human rights organization dedicated to promoting environmental, political, and social justice around the world.
