Summary

Business leaders have a huge influence on society, as their thinking and acting shapes the way the economy is run. This book portrays economic elites in a range of Central and Eastern European countries. It outlines the social origin of elites, their career paths, who exerts the greatest influence over them, which networks are important for them, and how they influence society. It explores how elites differ in different European countries, and examines their differing attitudes to a range of business-related issues such as trust, corporate social responsibility, money-making and regulation. It argues that although the "German model" still predominates among German business elites, in Eastern Europe an interesting new mix is developing, a mix of Anglo-American liberal capitalism tempered by a surprisingly resilient post-socialist state-directed model.
