Summary/Abstract: The organizers of the traditional “Slapanice'' seminar have asked me to write the foreword to these proceedings. The seminar is celebrating its 20th anniversary this year and, they say, I was present at its birth. So here I am, having been officially declared to be an eyewitness, which has made me little bit broody. Twenty years ago, when we started inviting our colleagues from affiliated departments and institutes engaged in the teaching and research of public sector economics to Slapanice, not even the founder of our field of studies, the legendary Professor Yvonne Strecková, could have envisaged the successful future of the seminar that we are experiencing today.
