“Social Market Economy Principles” – a new online course on VUM online

The Kharkiv office of the Konrad Adenauer Foundation and the NGO OUM launched the new online course “Social Market Economy Principles”.

The social market economy is not the complicated and theoretical concept, but one of the keys of success of post-war Germany – the European country with the leading economy in terms of economic development, standard of living and social standards.

But only narrow specialists in Ukraine aware about this effective economic model. This knowledge was not widely spread. Now there is the online course that gives access to information and provides an opportunity to gain knowledge.

The course “Social Market Economy Principles” answers the following questions:

  • What is the Social Market Economy?
  • How did it become the basis of the German economic miracle?
  • Why is Germany not the “capitalist” country?
  • What lessons can be learned from the German experience for Ukraine?

The course is free and open to anyone. The language of the course is Ukrainian.
