False answers in Hungarian agriculture after accession to European Union


  • Baranyai, Zsolt


The research based on primary data examines the answers given by Hungarian farms to the challenges of the changing economic environment following the accession to the European Union. The experience shows that the Hungarian farms have given basically false answers to the changing economic relation system. The subsidies have emerged on the market as "visible hands" and by allowing their impact which distorted the economic rationality, the basic economic aspects of production have been ignored. In the near future it will be especially important to liquidate this abnormal situation. This step will definitely indicate the demand to separate the social and producing agriculture, providing ground for the spreading of farmers’ cooperation.
