It is the sign of hope when a liberal thinker confirms the fact that “European liberalism has a long history of self-destruction” /Wolfgang Münchau, FT, 23 December 2019/.

There was an alternative crisis management for all European middle classes: a complete overhaul of taxation and an unconventional economic policy based on pragmatism instead of idealism.

The proof for the success of the way out is called Hungary.
