I can certify that these people feel the hunger of free market. My visit in Krynica was like a breath of fresh air and a surprising reminder how far America has gone astray. I was very impressed by the economic activity and public spirit visible across the country. I was also surprised that my opinions, which are rather laughed out in the US, were much appreciated by the Polish economists at the Forum.
