Economic policy problems. In submissions to state institutions and their answers (2002-2013)

In 2014, Pēteris Guļāns, in cooperation with the Institute of Economics of the Latvian Academy of Sciences, published the book “Problems of Economic Policy. In submissions to state institutions and their answers (2002-2013). ” SBN 978-9984-774-24-4.

After the restoration of independence, Latvia, contrary to the expected prosperity, became one of the poorest EU countries and maintains this status for a long time. The backwardness of economic development creates socio-economic insecurity, encourages the emigration of the most active part of the population and contributes to the extinction of the Latvian nation. The current situation is not accidental or caused by objective circumstances – it is largely a consequence of the incompatibility of the implemented socio-economic policy with the existing situation in the country and in the external environment.

The book summarizes the author’s assessments of the state of the economy and recommendations for the improvement of economic policy, its subordination to the goals to be achieved, coordination with the real situation in the country and changes in the world, provided to the highest institutions of the country.

The responses of the state institutions set out their vision of the state of the economy and the planned measures to improve it.

Experienced and relived

Pēteris Guļāns, in cooperation with the Institute of Economics of the Latvian Academy of Sciences, published the book “Experienced and Experienced” in 2008 ISBN 9984-774-09-0

The main story in this book is about the time spent, the problems it creates, the intertwining of human relationships and their behavior in conflict situations. The narration and evaluation of the events is mostly given by looking at them from the inside – as they were observed, understood and felt by the participant, moreover, explained impassively, objectively, avoiding categorical secrets and emotional glorification. The experienced narrator essentially raises a question not explicitly mentioned in the reflection: was it easy to be an active and honest citizen in the previous system and continuing, or was it easy to be in the current and in any other?
