The Vicious Circle of Nepotism

Written by: in: Politics

Romania’s leftist Prime Minister has failed to lead to the recall of the right-wing President – this news calmed the Western commentators and politicians who quite seriously began to worry about the stability of democracy in the poorest EU country. The reasons why Victor Ponta doesn’t like Traian Băsescu are as numerous and complicated – and […]

Jarosław the goal scorer

Jarosław the goal scorer

Written by: in: Politics

A move made by Jarosław Kaczyński in the morning on May 3 – supporting the idea of boycotting Euro 2012 sport events in Ukraine was not an own goal at all but a classic hat-trick. The ball, slowly and aimlessly played by Western European politicians, landed at former Prime Minister’s feet. For the first time […]

Future of euro is rather political than economic matter

Written by: in: Economy

The history of the ancient common currency shows that everything depends on politics, not the economy. For example, Latin and Scandinavian monetary unions collapsed, because of the cessation of unrestricted flow of gold between the forming countries at the outbreak of World War I; also the Austro-Hungarian and succeeding Czechoslovak crown disappeared along with the […]

Trite slogan, according to which in order to successfully help you have to give a fishing rod instead of fish, summarizes the main feature of liberal thinking about social policy – conviction that it is allowed to equalize opportunities but not to give away goods, which normally have to be worked for.
