Following Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Rhine capitalism, I have merged some content from Rhine capitalism into this article. bobrayner (talk) 19:15, 21 February 2014 (UTC)

Are there any connections with Distributism?[edit]

I posted about this on Quora and someone says there are similarities. I see it is linked on this page. --JamesPoulson (talk) 03:30, 31 January 2016 (UTC)

Its not a common term, far as i know. As its source is the papal encyclicals of Pope Leo XIII (1878-1903) and Pope Pius XI (1922-1939) this may be seen as reaction to the political concepts sourced from the 3 books of Karl Marx (Capital: Critique of Political Economy 1867–1883) and the connected political ideas which became very popular in that timeframe. Far as i know from these Catholic social teachings only the concept of Subsidiarity became a core part of the Social market economy. --Kharon (talk) 13:21, 10 January 2018 (UTC)

United States?[edit]

My sincerest apologies if this seems to be trying to use WP for discussion. However, I was surprised to see no mention of the United States in particular. Have there been no approximately similar economic movements outside Germany and Britain?

The wikipedia has special pages for questions. You may want to try Wikipedia:Reference desk/Humanities.
The core difference between for example EU member states and US states in regard to the historically socalled complex "The social question" is that "Social market economy" is defined/written into the EU "constitution" and in many individual EU state constitutions as well. The US constitution contains nothing alike. Contrary even, there where for example deep conflicts between US constitutional ideas and the New Deal under Franklin D. Roosevelt. --Kharon (talk) 12:54, 10 January 2018 (UTC)
