Competitive and cooperative attitudes in a transforming economy
Languages of publication
The basic institutions and legal frames of a market economy were established quite quickly after the change of system in East-Central Europe, including Hungary. But there has been a much slower change in the behaviour of the economic actors. The purpose of the research was to show the extent to which the competitive attitude and not least cooperative behaviour essential to market economies has developed in the two decades since the change of system. Are the actors in the economy capable of a positive response to the appearance of foreign competitors, or does the old, anti-competitive attitude still prevail? How is the behaviour of the competitors influenced by state intervention? The answers to these questions have been based on 71 in-depth interviews and a comparison of the picture obtained with data from a few international surveys.
