The author made an attempt at proving that the expansion of welfare activities in a contempofary capitalist state is due — apart from undoubtedly most important socio-political reasons — also, and that to a growing extent, to reasons of economic naturę. The welfare policy is, to a growing degree, utilized to cushion not only social but also economic dislocations of the capitalism. That is fully confirmed by the government act of „employment promotion" passed in the Federal Republic orf Germany in 1969. On the strength of this act the unemployment insurance, and thus strictly welfare institution, was obliged to play an active part in the employment policy. Analysis of the main resolutions of the act and of their practical execufion allows to draw the following conclusions: 1) in the capitalist system of production, which imposes a definite shape, form, and rangę of influence on welfare undertakings being in line with logics of its functioning, the socio-economic effectiveness of welfare undertakings must be largely restricted; 2) the welfare policy, although it improves to some extent the functioning mechanism of the capitalist economy, cannot for obvious reasons bring about elimination of negative socio-economic phenomena immanently accompanying the capitalist formation; 3) attempts at economic activation of the welfare policy will be, however, continued, and they may even prove to be an inseparable element of further development of this socio-economic formation.
