As we approach leaving the EPP, let’s remember someone else who gets it:
We must say openly that the present economic system of the EU is a system of a suppressed market, a system of a permanently strengthening centrally controlled economy. Although history has more than clearly proven that this is a dead end, we find ourselves walking the same path once again. This results in a constant rise in both the extent of government masterminding and constraining of spontaneity of market processes. In recent months, this trend has been further reinforced by incorrect interpretation of the causes of the present economic and financial crisis, as if it were caused by free market, while in reality it is just the contrary – caused by political manipulation of the market. It is again necessary to point to the historical experience of our part of Europe and to the lessons we learned from it.
