The winners and the losers of Romanian economic transition
AbstractWe tried to reveal some relative „winners" and „losers" of the post-socialist transformation process in Romania The relative „winner" or „loser" positions of the development regions, of the urban and rural areas, of the different population groups and of the activities of Romanian economy are emphasized by statistical databases. The main territorial „winner" in the 90s was the region of Bucharest, the Transylvanian regions, in general, could not improve their relative positions. One of the „losers" is the rural area, mainly the agricultural activity, which became a buffer for hidden unemployment. The majority of employees, peasants, retired people and mainly the unemployed, are net „losers" in economic respect, at least on short-term. We have to mention that about all of Romania's population, concerning democracy, are winners.
