Verejná mienka a ekonomická transformace - český případ

Červenka, Jan. 2002. „Verejná mienka a ekonomická transformace - český případ.“ Pp. 28-44. Verejná mienka a ekonomické reformy. Bratislava: INEKO.

Using empirical data this paper shows that high expectations and support for transformation in the Czech republic persisted despite the initial fall in living standards. Economic and political crisis of 1997-1998 meant a turning point, however. String of several bank bankruptcies, mounting corruption cases and asset stripping in newly privatised companies led to the deterioration of evaluation of course of reforms and to the change of government. Since 1999 gradual economic improvement reversed the trend back to more popular satisfaction.
