Selected contents from this journal
Languages of publication
In the light of the European survey on income and living conditions (EU-SILC) for the period 2005-2007, income inequality and the risk of relative poverty in Poland are among the largest in the European Union. Economic slowdown caused by the world financial crises, as well as structural reasons, may affect the maintenance or even deepening inequality and poverty risk. This may weaken the social capital necessary, in the short term, for the preservation of social stability during the period of economic downturn, and in the longer term - for the difficult changes in order to improve the competitiveness of the Polish economy.
