Summary/Abstract: Since the beginning of Romania’s political transition to democracy, its politicians have made public promises that the country would follow the principles of democracy and the market economy. Yet between 1990 and 1996 these very same politicians used populist and nationalist slogans to attack not only western-style capitalism, but also the historic legacy of the inter-war period with which traditional political parties were linked, and ethnic minorities (especially Hungarians).
