I would like to thank Paul Glenn for hosting this event and Fred Smith and his Competitive Enterprise Institute for making it happen.

English Pages, 6. 3. 2009

Many thanks for the invitation to participate in this important and timely gathering of business people, economists, environmentalists and politicians.

English Pages, 7. 1. 2009

It is a common feeling that the Czech Republic is taking over the European Union presidency at a rather complicated moment, even though almost all “moments” can eventually be called “complicated”.
