1. Situation

The Romanian economy is in a desolate state. The change to a free market economy is taking a long time and the majority of the people are overtaxed by this. High unemployment and inflation make this western free-market economy look very dim. And yet they had dreamed of it after the Revolution. In this time of great hardship and unhappiness is a great potential for danger.

Even though many are talented, they are not able to come up with what is needed to start a business. But what is needed are those small enterprises, that are successful. They will pave the way in everyone's minds towards a free-marked economy and what that means, how it needs to work. In this new way of thinking is also the important part of taking initiative. This cannot come about with constant help but only with "help to help yourself".
