About Us

“What should have died along with communism is the belief that modern societies can be run on a simple principle, whether that of planning under the general will or that a free-market allocation.” Charles Taylor (Canadian Philosopher) in The Ethics of Authenticity, 1991

We are a group of Romanian, Romanian-born and foreign scholars and policy thinkers who strongly believe that Romania must remove the shackles of the neoliberal ideology and adopt a common-sense, third way, between the discredited dogmas of socialism-communism and the seductive illusions of freewheeling capitalism as promoted by neoliberal ideologues.

Mission Statement

This center is a forum for the promotion of ideas and actionable policies to bring about a fair and prosperous Romania. Our mission is to help salvage Romania from its misguided politics and dead-end economic policies.
Ravaged by the “experiment” of socialism-communism, Romania embraced the equally destructive, if more subtle, “experiment” of neo-liberalism, with its free, meaning unhinged, market economics and its pernicious incantations of “globalization” and “financial market efficiency”.
The consequences for Romania have been disastrous […]

Black Markets and Business Blues

FI Press Montreal - Yvan Allaire, Mihaela Firsirotu: Black Markets and Business Blues Black Markets and Business Blues, Autori: Yvan Allaire, Mihaela Fîrșirotu, FI Press Montreal
This book tells a sad tale. This is the tale of how and why the U.S. financial system and the American model of corporations, touted as examples for the rest of the world, have proven fragile and destructive. It is the tale of how, over the last thirty years, financial markets became populated by funds of all sorts, operators of every breed, speculators of every stripes, and have taken control of publicly listed corporations.
This tale tells of the consequences: short-term management of companies, greed, in and around corporations, the loss of loyalty and commitment within companies, weak governance… The book singles out the particular case of Canada which struggles, with moderate success, to steer clear of the worst excesses of financial capitalism.

Beyond Monks and Minow

FI Press Montreal - Yvan Allaire, Mihaela Firsirotu: Beyond Monks and Minow Beyond Monks and Minow, Autori: Yvan Allaire, Mihaela Fîrșirotu, FI Press Montreal
The distemper of our times and investors’ belated outrage have turned corporate governance into a growth industry. Along with much hand wringing, disconsolate essays on ethics, host of new rules and regulations have come the banal and the trivial, invariably trotting on the allure of a surging phenomenon.
The essays contained in this monograph were written à chaud over the period of January 2002 to June 2003 as the debate was raging over the causes of this latest round of financial fiascos and over the proper measures to prevent a recurrence. The leitmotiv of our texts is that we must seek the root causes for what happened before launching into poorly conceived, and ultimately self-defeating, crusades.

A treia forță, România profundă

Editura Logos - Ovidiu Hurduzeu, Mircea Platon: A treia forță, România profundă A treia forță, România profundă, autori: Ovidiu Hurduzeu, Mircea Platon, Editura Logos, 2008
• Premiul pentru carte-eveniment 2008 al revistei "Convorbiri Literare"
• Carte nominalizată pentru Premiul special al Uniunii Scriitorilor pe anul 2008
"Publicăm aceste eseuri în speranţa că vor ajuta la coagularea unei «a treia forţe». Între capitalismul foştilor comunişti şi marxismul de salon pe banii corporaţiilor occidentale, între cârdăşia politico-economică pozând în piaţă liberă şi lichelismul ideologic-corporat pozând în nonconformism de stânga, între vechiul şi noul establishment, România profundă a dispărut în exil interior sau propriu-zis. Propunem acest manifest la două mâini în nădejdea că va ajuta la identificarea unei «a treia căi». Una de întors acasă."
