Mi Hazank urges rethink of Hungary’s economic policies

The opposition Mi Hazank part has urged a radical rethink of Hungary's economic policies.

Citing data comparing Hungarian and Polish real household incomes which indicated that the former were worse off, Janos Lantos, the party’s labour spokesman, told a press conference on Wednesday that the privatisations of the 1990s were responsible for this development, and had set the country up as a supplier of “global big capital”, while the current government was “thinking in terms of battery superpower status” and dependent on importing guest workers.

He called for the establishment of an independent Hungarian national economy based on domestic manufacturing and an appreciation of Hungarian workers in moral and financial terms.
