In the first scenario the deregulated markets became a dominant feature of the global and cyclically growing world economy. In particular, this will benefit industrial states which dominate the international financial and economic organizations as donor countries. Short-term pursuit of profit and increasing individualism promote instability in the real and financial economy that are, however, widely accepted because they lead generally to increases in prosperity.

In this alternative image, equilibrium is established by deregulation. The promise of free markets has not been fulfilled for the majority of the people. The location competition has escalated and many states are under pressure due to increasing unemployment and social conflicts have developed new forms of isolation – especially competing economic and currency blocks. This has impeded the dynamism of the world economy. A three-class society is being created from equity owners, employed and unemployed people.
