The birth of the true Innovation PDF Print E-mail

As the economist and political scientist Joseph Schumpeter once stated, “the majority of economists…are ready enough to admit its [ideologies] presence, but like Marx, they find it only in others and never in themselves.

The Information Society in Bulgaria PDF Print E-mail

In the following publication I’ll try to examine the developments of the Bulgarian society in the years around the country’s accession in the EU, and the last years 2010-2011.
