Ondrej Svoboda, Lukas Melecky, Michaela Stanickova

By re-establishing economic ties both inside and outside regions, regional economies that have been disturbed by a shock may transition to a new growth trajectory.

Defending the nation, securing the economy

Iulia-Cristina Iuga, Adela Socol

The way in which military expenditures affect GDP has been analysed using both…
