Jekyl and Hyde economics

Ján (?? Is this his first name? Check Trend Oct. 26) Cekota, an EBRD representative in Slovakia was quoted as saying: "From the outside, Slovakia appears to have the best economic results in the region. Its [economic] stability is one of the biggest surprises of applied economics in the ş90's." But there's a catch. "More problematic, however, is the government's approach to the sale of state property. The government is not able to decide whether it wants foreign investment or not. On one hand, it wants a lot of money, but on the other hand it does not want to give up control of the economy."
