The Bosnian news-portals Javno.ba and interNOVINE published the two authors today. Admir and Marek wrote this piece in a series of articles on the so-called “Hungarian Disease” of nationalizing private pensions. The “Hungarian Disease” is currently infecting Poland and thus threatening the sustainability of the Polish pension system and alienating people’s right to keep their private savings.

Young Voices Published in Huffington Post Quebec Writing About Free Trade

Young Voices Advocate Yael Ossowski and Director Fred Roeder were published by Huffington Post Quebec writing about the positive effects a free trade agreement between Canada and the European Union will have for consumers on both sides of the Atlantic. This piece has already been published in German (Huffington Post Germany) and English (PanAmPost).

Any kind of relaxation of import tariffs and increase of import quotas should be welcomed since those allow more choice for consumers. At the same time it is important to stress out that those trade negotiations that last for years, have an uncertain outcome, and result in merely increasing import quotas.
