    This paper examines social policy autonomy in the light of increasing fluidity of trade and investment, and suggests that Cohen's Unholy Trinity model of reduced national monetary policy autonomy may be applied to social policy (narrowly defined to include labor market and other employment-related policies) as well. The presence of free trade and foreign direct investment mean that national autonomy on social policy is curtailed by forum-shopping under certain circumstances. A case study of the experience of shipping investment and policy autonomy in three countries---Norway, Denmark, and Germany--is used to test the model.
