The period of the years 2005-2010 was very rich in important external and internal events which influenced the development of Slovakia. Its economy experienced a rapid boom, but also a fall caused by economic crisis n the world. It was the industry which was an engine of the economic growth but also the reason of the fall of economy. The efficiency of the Slovak economy was gradually getting close to the average GDP per capita of the EU. This process was stagnated by the crisis. Our wages and retirement benefits are markedly lower than in the EU. The income structure of inhabitants is being deformed. Formation of people as economic as well as intellectual beings is inevitable.
