Summary/Abstract: According to my knowledge this is the first book that was published in Romania and covers the delicate issue of the financial and economic crisis, within the new political juncture of post communism. It seems that nowadays significantly less persons than expected are aware of the nature of cyclical movements that illustrate the evolution of a free economy, therefore such an approach has a true educational potential. Not to mention the lack of information among the practitioners. But the real intrinsic value of the research conducted by Professor Marga lies probably deeper, in the comprehensive inter-disciplinary approach, well known to this author from previous works. It is quite obvious for many that the background of the present day crisis in Romania is much more sophisticated, due to the cultural, philosophical or other non-economic components that were long time forgotten but should be properly encapsulated in any crisis model. Usually this could be done only with extreme difficulty and making operational various research type of skills. It is precisely what this book attempts, and in my opinion succeeds to do.
