"The Greek financial case is certainly extreme in its complexities but there have been other Eurozone members – the Irish, the Portuguese and the Spanish – experiencing dramatic economic events in recent years: economic prosperity first, followed by serious financial difficulties, necessitating international support schemes."

"One would imagine that there has been a lot of soul-searching in the economic profession after the eruption of the most recent, and surprisingly deep, economic and financial crisis of 2007–2009. Certainly much has been written on the state of modern economics and on the validity of the advice offered by economists. Yet the economics mainstream does not seem to have been on the retreat. Crisis? What crisis? – has been the reaction of many leading personalities of the profession."

"Textbooks at the University of Economics in Budapest referred to East Germany (GDR) as one of the ten most powerful industrial nations of the world, on a par with South Korea. Western analysts generally concurred. The Soviet Union was considered, right up to its disintegration, as a highly industrialised country; although whether it was termed an advanced nation is another matter."

"This essay discusses the middle class in Hungary, not from a sociologist’s angle, but its present situation and social weight."

"In the case of Hungary, the perennial benchmark is Austria. Recent economic history research proves that the Hungarian level of economic development was closest to that of Austria in the years before the Second World War: in the late 1930s, Hungary’s per capita income level was as high as 75 per cent of Austria’s – higher than any time before, even within the Austro-Hungarian Monarchy."

"It is not easy to take issue with Roger Scruton’s analysis: his arguments on the need of nations are supported by his vast knowledge of history, ideas, politics and ethics, and by his impressive experience gained in various parts of our world, including pre- and post-transition East Central Europe."

"In the CEE region, and especially in Hungary, further palpable and lasting convergence is needed to stop the negative, self-reinforcing processes caused by the temporary or long-term migration of the young and the educated."

"It is now more than half a decade since first a local American turbulence and then a global one shook the world of international finance. Half a decade should have been enough time for all those involved – politicians, economists, bankers, analysts, entrepreneurs and consumers – to digest the events of the global recession and draw conclusions."
