Placení účtu za gulášový komunismus
[Paying the Bill for Gulash-Communism]


  • János Kornai


The way of Hungarian economy, from a centralised economy to market economy, embodies some different aspects in comparison with other post-communistic countries. The goal of the text is to contribute to explanations of these aspects, their interactions and effects induced. The analysis starts with anti-communistic revolution in 1956, than follows with the time of reformation and increasing indebtedness of communistic government and furthers the winning of democracy and gradualist transformation after election 1990 until stabilisation in 1995. (The second part of text is in Politická ekonomie, 1997, č.3)
