Europe is supported by one pillar only…

Written by: in: Economy

Not only in Europe but also elsewhere, people are commenting on the possible Greek’s exit from the eurozone. I am not going to dwell on that utopian socialist lamentation. When you read in a newspaper that a strong Europe says to Greece ‘you’ve done that yourself so don’t expect us to be merciful’ you can […]

On the likely benefits from the Greek lesson

Written by: in: Economy

The mass media, along with the political, social and economic authorities, flood us with comments on whether Greece leaves the Eurozone or not – and what costs Greece, the Eurozone and the world (including Poland) would have to bear. The markets suffer from consecutive tremors. A disaster is coming – they announce. Meanwhile, it would […]

Reflections On The Edge Of Bed

Written by: in: Economy

Reflections on the destiny of the eurozone and on the steps being taken to avert the crisis reminds me of an old joke: one girlfriend whispers to the other that she has not enough sex in her new marriage and the other asks – Isn’t your husband interested in sex? – No, the former answers. […]

War dances around shales

Written by: in: Economy

Judging from various statements and behaviors, politicians – and not just them! – sometimes think of Poland as of Kuwait – the country of rentiers, living on “manna falling from heaven” (or rather from the depths of the earth).

Trains going in opposite directions

Written by: in: Politics

Strategies, scenarios and predictions: between science and mythology

Written by: in: Economy

Pitfalls of one scenario or projection The following considerations do not aspire to give  a systematic presentation of prognostication issues. Nevertheless, having been relatively close to this area since 1970s (i.e.: in the Committee ‘Poland 2000’ at Polish Academy of Sciences PAN) I believe I posses certain observations in the  matter, which are worth presenting […]

Towards the liberal capitalist order

Towards the liberal capitalist order

Written by: in: Thought

Explanation The author owns “Liberte” readers an explanation. As I took part, from the very first days of the transformation (or even much earlier), in various liberal program trials and errors, I created, sometimes alone, sometimes with others, numerous proposals concerning such a program.
