introductory epistle
A Bit of Working Confusion
As an introduction to the feature of this past fortnight – which can, naturally, only be about Gotovina et. al. and the verdict brought by the Hague Tribunal – we must say that both Easter and the upcoming Labour Day are quite ominous, or perfectly coincident with what we termed a few issues ago the most important verdict in Croatia’s young history. Not to blaspheme, but this country is in dire need of resurrection. Old ideas are spent – even the idea, or the ideal, of (noble) war effort and fighting for one’s country – regardless of the might with which Gotovina and Markač’s wind of demise has swept through the whole country. Also, at the peril of sounding obvious, I shall also say (time and again) that this country is also in need of serious and concerted effort, for the way things are going in the economy – going very slowly or not going at all – might remind us of the importance of the impending Labour Day. Now we shall blaspheme, no matter what we do. The First of May has in these parts always been associated with Socialism, with the Great and Inviolable Worker, he who was never either great or inviolate but who was beloved, for propaganda purposes, of all dictators throughout the twentieth century, including our own (both the century and our own home-made versions of dictators). We shall either blaspheme against the Labour Unions which, after the customary paradox, are awfully apt to deem “holy” any day on which there would be no labour done. Or we shall blaspheme against all those “true” Croats – think of the Mayor of Split, Željko Kerum, for instance – who dismiss all those wishing to enjoy certain rights they enjoyed in the Old System (read: the Socialist Federative Republic of Yugoslavia) as “urban Yugoslavs”, whatever that means.
Apparently, we should feel ashamed of being “urban” (whatever that means), and we should cease being South Slavs. We should, apparently, believe that our forces committed no crimes during the war, just as we should believe – which is, I reckon, what the International Community is trying to tell us – that a nation’s pride is a thing of the past and that we should stop boring everyone with historical “minutiae” and get on point. We maintain a critical stance with regard to “foreign investments” and “foreign management”, even after we have proven to our own selves several times over that we are perfectly incapable of managing our natural and human resources. At least for the nonce. We are confused. I too am confused, as it is very difficult to run a primarily business/economics oriented fortnightly publication if there is nothing major taking place in the economy. Yes, the generals have been found guilty, and yes, everything seems to be at a standstill. Though I may have misled you. There are things of business interest in this issue, and there are things of formidable entertainment value. The more often they converge, the better we will be at our job. The work has been done. May Labour Day remind us all that even more needs to be done, and that the recent weather conditions should have serves us well in the (ongoing) process.

O časopisu:

     Croatia: a Fortnight in Review (CR)  is the first publication of its kind in Croatia: a twice monthly national English language newspaper for all those seeking high-level analysis of contemporary business, legal, political and cultural affairs and events in Croatia.  The editorial office is well-rounded and, of course, international, and draws on the extensive experience of a composite of full-time professionals and outsourced experts.
     News in all its insightful and banal forms is everywhere nowadays, but no newspaper should be solely about the news; the task of every self-respecting broadsheet is to provide and create meaningful context.  This, simply, is our mission.
