Economic theory is, and should be, always on the move: there are many well-known phenomena we cannot explain satisfactorily — and there are no doubt many more unknown economic phenomena waiting to be discovered.
George J. Stigler

The creation of the journal "Ekonomia i Prawo. Economics and Law" is a result of increasing awareness of undervaluing, or even neglecting, the importance of institutional solutions for the effectiveness of the Polish economy, and more broadly, the level of social welfare. Poland, as an example, proves that creation of a market economy, without it being supported by an institutional infrastructure, entails many disadvantageous results such as:

  • neglect of a state of law,

  • inefficiency of social controls mechanisms,

  • progressing decrease of Polish parliamentary system prestige,

  • lack of methods of solving conflicts ex ante,

  • a faulty structure of public finances,

  • lack of control over a considerable part of public resources,

  • unclear mechanism of reaching regulations on particular markets,

  • lack of clearly defined developmental strategy,

If, in such circumstances, the state undertakes intervention in the market ineffectiveness, it may be only increased. The journal indicator’s efforts aim at making the chance real by creating a solid plane of communication between economists and lawyers in the process of influencing the shape of the state’s institutional order.
