    The article discusses relevant theories concerning economic political integration within the political system of the European Union which today is far the most important regulatory framework for businesses of the EU. In conclusion, the article suggests a so-called social constructivist rational choice theory where social constructivism takes care of the ever changing political preferences whereas rational choice theory concentrates on the much more permanent political institutions. The proposed theory is applied on the most important reforms of the Common Agricultural Policy in 1984, 1992, and 2003. The theory is able to explain both the introduction of much more post modern preferences in the reforms as well as the fact that the poorly organized groups of consumers as well as (increasingly) tax payers pay the bill of the CAP no matter when and how it is reformed.
