A faulty sphere of systems developed in Hungary under socialism and after the change of system, not irrespectively of each other. The socialism imposed by the Hungarian state was too 'market', too 'capitalist', but Hungarian capitalism has proved too 'state', too 'socialist' in the criteria of the ruling system. Instead of spontaneous order, as outlined by Hayek, the essence of Hungary's new system has become 'bureaucratic disorder'. As institutions developed and influenced each other, the leading 'mutant' mix was a self-generating process that prevents the advantages of the new system from developing. The situation is similar in the relation between rapidly developed formal institutions and social awareness, which is rapidly become paternalistic. The informal institutions often impede operation of the formal ones.
