Tadeusz Kowalik (1926-2012) studied law and economics at the University of Warsaw, Poland. This book arises from the research that he did for his post-doctoral thesis, supervised by Oskar Lange (1904-1965). Tadeusz Kowalik worked with Micha? Kalecki and was active in dissident circles. He was expelled from Poland's ruling party in 1968, and then emerged in 1980 as an adviser to the Solidarity trade union, which he assisted through the discussions in 1989 that prepared the transition to democracy in Poland. A prolific writer, he became Poland's pre-eminent political economist and a fierce critic of the new capitalism that was installed in Poland's transition.
