Central European Horizons

"The author’s main aim is to present the economic growth not only in terms of GDP growth, but also in terms of improvements in consumption and the quality of life, as opposed to previous research. His argument is convincing: GDP has a number of components that do not at all reflect the real living standards of a society. Béla Tomka’s book is indispensable for those looking for data on the history of the post-1945 era. One can argue with the narrative, but much less with the data."
