XX Doctor Honoris Causa AEP - Professor Leszek Balcerowicz.
During the 81st Inauguration of Academic Year of the University of Economics in Poznań, the Chairman of the National Bank of Poland, Professor Leszek Balcerowicz, obtained the title of Doctor Honoris Causa. Hence, the twenty second doctor honoris causa joined the academic community of PUEB. Appointment of this title to Professor Leszek Balcerowicz is proof of recognition for his special achievements in the field of transformation of the Polish economic system, growth and popularization of knowledge and economic culture and, last but not least, for the format of his personality symbolizing a unique model of public service, a strive towards objective truth and a sustainable development of Poland.
The laudatory speech was given by Professor Wacław Wilczyński who described Professor Balcerowicz as “a scientist and politician who substantially contributed to the demystification of socialism as a systemic alternative that in its essence inhibits development. Professor Balcerowicz contributed to a large extent to the revolution of the market economy, to the return of many countries to freedom and to rationality”.
