Warsaw Enterprise Institute
We believe that the security of Poland and the prosperity of citizens depend on their rights and freedoms. The choice of their own way of life, equality before the law, and the right to multiply their wealth. The wealth of nations requires a strong and efficient state to protect us from injustice and external threats. Its role, however, should be limited to the necessary minimum so that it does not hamper the energy and spirit of entrepreneurship.
Warsaw Enterprise Institute focuses on four areas critical to Poland’s development and prosperity: the functioning of the state, its security, the economy, and demography.
THE MAIN FACTOR DETERMINING BEHAVIOR AND ATTITUDES IS THE LAW.
We will undertake and support activities aimed at improving the quality of the law, the process of its making, application, and enforcement in court proceedings.
The law should be as simple as possible and regulate as few areas of life as possible.
We are opposed to excessive regulation – most of the economic and social life should be based on Natural Order, voluntary agreements, contracts and disputes in this area should be resolved quickly and efficiently by independent courts.
We advocate a strong but limited State, focused on providing external and internal security and justice for its citizens.
HISTORICAL EXPERIENCE TEACHES US THAT ABOVE ALL WE MUST RELY ON OURSELVES.
We support Poland’s presence in the European Union, as an economic community with free movement of people, labor, services, and capital – the goals that lay at the foundation of the Union. We do not support the idea of a single European state that serves only European bureaucracy. In its foreign policy Poland, like other countries, should be guided primarily by its own political and economic interests, without excessive sentiment.
ONLY A STRONG ECONOMY CAN FUND NATIONAL DEFENSE, IMPROVE THE QUALITY OF LIFE AND STOP DEPOPULATION.
THE REALIZATION OF ALL THE ABOVE GOALS DEPENDS TO A LARGE EXTENT ON REVERSING THE DEMOGRAPHIC TRENDS THAT ARE VERY UNFAVORABLE FOR POLAND.
This requires actions aimed at increasing the birth rate, stopping emigration, and a sensible immigration policy.
The state and local governments should strive to strengthen the legal and social position of the family to promote higher fertility rates.
Poles should be allowed to keep more of their earnings in their pockets so that they can afford to have and raise children.
Poland should completely change its policy of social support for the least well-off by resigning from nationwide solutions and conducting social policy from the lowest administrative level, which will be addressed only to those who need taxpayer support.
We are advocates of common sense. We do not support or fight any political party. We are willing to support a variety of nationally beneficial solutions, regardless of their source.
