Unbalances on the education and innovation market – enhancement factor of the crisis in Romania. A liberal approach

Aurelian Virgil BĂLUŢĂ, Liviu JICMAN


The paper starts from the identification of imbalances on the education and innovation market in Romania. The implications of each of these imbalances on the amplification of the crisis are explained. Solutions are presented and estimates are made of resources to be allocated to restore that balance. The imbalance and economic growth issues and even demands of the knowledge economy aim to be addressed from a liberal point of view.

The paper includes the following chapters: introduction, the position of education and innovation resources in the fight for development against the crisis, the shortage of places in kindergartens – serious problem in pre-school education, the lack of funding for research, projects possible for a real deficit. The position of education and innovation resources in the fight for development is presented in accordance with international accounting standards, the economic science and the present radical liberal current. The last chapter lists specific projects and “My city, city of innovation” and “Internet/TV platform for pre-university education” projects are being detailed. Statistical data which is available at public authorities is used and the information from blog debates is being valued.
