Since February 1997 we have been regularly surveying what palace people allocate to the economic standard of our country compared to nine other European countries. 1% assesses the Czech economy as being very good, 54% as probably good, 39% as probably bad and 4% as very bad; only 1% could not judge the situation. When all countries were evaluated a table headed by Germany and followed by Austria was drafted.
The third place belongs to Hungary with 55% of positive and 35% of critical evaluations. The Czech Republic achieved an identical number of positive evaluations as Hungary but a higher ratio of critical ones – it therefore ranks behind Hungary. The CR is followed by Slovenia and Poland, and then by Slovakia with a bigger margin between them. Bulgaria, Russia and Romania with 10% of positive evaluations were at the bottom of the table.
