Summary/Abstract: The author offers arguments in order to justify its hypothesis claiming that in Poland one can see cultural factors which make the state and the society have no real chance to be able to get out of current level of development or underdevelopment, within short, or middle term. In otherwords, one can hardly believe in “big leap forward” relating to economicand social development what would make possible to get out of so called middle-income trap meaning many unsatisfactory economic parameters inareas of innovation, productivity, capital accumulation, structure of export, including quite low level of standard of living for significant section of society(low income, low quality of public services etc.). Due to culture factors – associated mainly with intellectual culture– obstacles to development still are in place visible in the way the public institutions work including low level of effectiveness of public administration, low level of governability when it comes to reforms designed to strengthen the capacity of the state institutions as well as the society in resolving emerging policy problems. It would require a culture change, especially in the area ofintellectual culture.
