Problemy transformacji systemowej w Polsce
MetadataShow full item record
The collapse of socialism in Poland means that our country returns to positions of peripheral dependence within the world economy system, which is perhaps even worse than at the time the socialist experiment began. In such situation, the main challenge or goal before Poland continues to be the overcoming of civilizational backwarndness. In Poland and in the other countries of Eastern Europe, there can be distinguished the following stages in the socio-economic transformation process. They are: stabilization, recession, and expansion. The first stage (called the Balcerowicz Programme in Poland) aimed at restoring economic equilibrium, curbing inflation and entering the path of market economy. Deflation caused recession, in which practical activity of economic units was and is verified. At the present time, Poland begins to enter the third stage, i.e. the stage of economic growth. The implementation of the transformation process, and particularly its last stage - expansion creates the only guarantee that Poland join the worldwide trend of civilizational development.
