Max Weber on Modernism - Dictionary of Arguments

Habermas III 226
Modernity/Modernization/Society/Weber/Habermas: Like Marx, Weber understands the modernization of society as a differentiation of the capitalist economy and the modern state. Both stabilize each other. The organizational core of the capitalist economy is the capitalist enterprise, which
- is separate from the budget, and
- with the help of accounting
- investment decisions are oriented towards the opportunities of the goods, capital and labour
markets,
- using a formally free labour force efficiently
- makes technical use of scientific findings.
The organizational core of the state is formed by the rational state institution, which
- on the basis of a centralised and stable tax system
III 227
- has a centrally controlled, standing military power,
- monopolizes legislation and the legitimate use of force, and
- organizes the administration bureaucratically, i.e. in the form of a rule of specialist officials.
