my starting point was the argument that the way privatisation occured in
what is now Yugoslavia did not differ in quality from other East European
states. I think imperialist hostility towards Yugoslavia must have other
reasons than the alleged 'non-capitalist' character of Yugoslavia.
I think these two quotes from Paul Philips back my position:
"If you look at Slovenia's for around the same period you will find
"Last I heard, the same situation was true in Croatia with the result of
more state ownership now than ever before."
I am just wondering, what are your conclusions from the Paul Philips piece.
