DEVELOPMENT OF MARKET CULTURE IN THE POST - 1989 PERIOD OF POLAND
Abstract: Since the overthrow of the Communist regime in 1989,
Poland has been striving to transform her domestic structure especially in the
light of the guiding norms of the EU. The economic dimension of this
transformation process implies the construction of a liberal market economy in
all senses. In several years after the regime change, almost all the necessary
institutional-legal adjustments were completed and, from this procedural
perspective, Poland was defined as a market economy. However, beyond this
legal-institutional frame, the real construction of a market economy as of any
other structure, necessitates the internalisation of normative values-behavioural
rules of this economy (market economy culture) by individuals. This study aims
to display to what extent such a normative transformation had been achieved in
the post- 1989 period of Poland.
