How We Learnt The West in The East

Jeden z pierwszych, roboczych opisów mojego i Janka Simona projektu "Polish-Indian Shop" jest już w necie po angielsku.

"Polish people had been learning capitalist economy long before it became a part of the official state policy and their 'school of life' was the black market, especially difficult in the Eastern context due to cultural differences and the physical distance but at the same time – a lucrative one. Trade flourished not only in Europe but also in India, Turkey, Russia, Thailand, Singapore and Taiwan, and money generated in this exchange – admittedly illegal but increasingly willingly accepted by the authorities – was big enough to become important investment capital after the Polish borders had opened. The illustration may be currency reserves located on private bank accounts in 1987: they totaled to 2 billion dollars (the same amount was probably kept outside of the banking system). Many businessmen who were then or who still are crucial shareholders of the market started their careers in India or other Asian countries having gained there their 'first million' and, what’s important, they learnt the rules of capitalism."
