I don't remember being this excited over a book. The book in question is:
And that's only in Yugoslavia. When I start looking the problem of Youth Unemployment and Social Exclusion in Europe, we are going to hate each other even more and feel so worse than in Yugoslavia. It's no surprise that the Macedonian youth is among the most prepared and talented in Europe, but Europe my dear can't find you on the map.
That happens when they send some "John Smith" to evaluate the situation in Macedonia and meet a government servant named some "Petko Trajkoski" saying we are all great here, happy and wealthy. Nor "John Smith" can really see the picture there nor "Petko Trajkoski" is allowed to talk bad about its country.
What we need is local people really interested and dedicated to see and explain the reasons behind, do a research and the right presentation of facts and figures. Foreign "know-it-all" can shadow and give their views and not much more than that.
Don't understand yet why Macedonian economist, scientist were giving very good suggestions back in the 80ties and 90ties and Macedonia did quite the opposite.
I can't understand either why the Europen initiatives to battle youth unemployment is far from Macedonia. No initiative can call itself "European" if it doesn't include primarily the countries most hit by the problem.
Well, it seems that poor people problems are more difficult to solve and we can quickly show everybody how good we are.
Definitely a dissertation that needs to be very critical toward all the Yugo-nostalgic and EU-fanatics. You are doing things wrong an you know it!
And thats's becouse none of them pays for my course.
