I'm not doing so, nor was my Croatian friend, at least not exclusively. She
argued that pretty much all of the 'freedoms' available in the West were
available in Yugoslavia as well (I actually hadn't realised, perhaps
ignorantly, that Yugoslavians were perfectly free to travel wherever they
wanted - if this is incorrect, please do tell me). Comparing degrees of
inequality, which was a crux of her argument, isn't quite the same as just
comparing income, I suppose.
