This article examines the effect of globalization on the distribution of taxes and social expenditures in Europe. It demonstrates that in the conservative regimes, both social expenditures and taxes on labor increase due to globalization. Conversely, in the liberal regimes, the ITR on labor is rising, while social expenditures are declining. In the southern welfare regime globalization does not have any significant effects on the distribution of taxes or social spending. In Eastern Europe, in the Baltic states globalization leads to a decrease in social spending, whereas in the other Central and Eastern European New Member States, there is an upward convergence in social spending due to globalization
