Preconditions for the Realization of Socio-Economic Modernization in Hungary


  • Erzsébet Nováky

    () (Corvinus University)


In her paper the author emphasises that economic and social modernization are of equal importance nowadays in Hungary. For economic modernization the possibility of the modification of socio-economic processes, and for social modernization the future-shaping power constitutes the main precondition. While the modification of socio-economic processes can be investigated by their stability/instability analyses, the future-shaping power can be gauged by the future orientation of individuals and social organizations. "Factor four" provides the guidelines for economic modernization, and a future-oriented education and training system can ensure a solid basis for social modernization.
