Please forgive the intrusion for this minor need.  I couldn't find a recipe
anywhere for Hungarian Goulash so I thought I might try this group.  I
figure the best place to find a Hungarian recipe is on a Hungarian list.

If you have a recipe to share, I will post it to rec.food.recipes.  Please
post here or e-mail directly to

While I aired similar views on ecconomists etc, could you
tell me if I'm wrong saying, that there are countries with
non liberal/communist governments, who managed amass debts
of similar dimensions. The result of this monatery plolicy
was prudent on the side of Western powers - now more
money flows into the already rich than going the other way.
As back in the old imperialist days...

--No argument here, either.  Our food prices are low by EU levels,
and I can't believe that paying U.S. citizens--or legal braceros--
a fair wage for the work now performed by illegals would make that
much difference in the first place.  We don't use illegals to do
other things that we buy.  People on this list have raised the
question about child laborers in the Far East being paid low
wages.  I'm sure they are.  But in the clothing industry, I notice
that American goods are making a comeback.  I think I know why.
Ever buy a shirt made in the Far East?  Did it really fit?  I can't
wear 'em.  Tails are too short.  Seams don't hold.  I see that the
prices aren't all that much less, either.  I'm willing to pay a
few bucks more to get a well-made American shirt.  Since it lasts
longer, it is actually cheaper.

Here is the obligatory Hungarian content.  I was talking to a
hotel clerk in Budapest about three in the morning while I was
still jet-lagged.  He was discussing the economic situation in
Hungary.  The relevant conversation went something like this:

I asked him about the prospects for Hungarian industry.  He
replied, "The trouble is that we make junk.  Here, we always
try to buy Czech or German goods.  We only buy our own when
we can't get or can't afford their goods."  His argument was
that because under socialism, production was to quota rather
than to the market, there were lax standards of craftsmanship.
Since the worker got paid regardless of whether the product
sold, there was no incentive to have pride in the product.
Made sense to me.

--Pardon me, but I think that you should add to your reading list.  You
are correct in saying that American liberals accept the market system,
but there is a very vocal American left which, in fact, espouses
an almost 1920s style of socialism.  Some of these people are in
history and political science, but the bulk of them are in colleges
of education.  You may want to look for Giroux & McLaren's *Critical
Pedagogy, the State, and Cultural Struggle* for an introduction to
this literature.  Further, most European social democrats are far
more accepting of the market system that the American left.  The
social democrats in Germany came to terms with the market in the
late 1950s.  Tony Blair called for the elimination of Clause Four
in the Labour party manifesto this year (he didn't get it, but
nobody takes it seriously any more except a friend of mine in
Nottingham).  And the Swedes were never very interested in public
ownership in the first place.

--The rest of your argument is sound, except for one thing.  True,
the entitlements have burdened the taxpayer, but something also must
be said for tax losses which are over 600 B per year.

Dear all,
I am a second year, british university student majoring in Hungarian, and
as part of my degree course I shall spend the next academic year (sept
1995 - june 1996) studying in Hungary, most probably in Budapest. I would
greatly appreciate any information on living costs ( monthly rent  of a
one or two bedroom flat, water, heating and telephone(if I'm lucky) bills,
weekly cost of food, and so on), setting up a forint bank account into
which I can transfer money from my British account, and anyone's recent
personal experience of ELTE (particularly support systems for foreign
students , good professors in the departments of History and Hungarian).
Thanks in anticipation,

There are two different varieties depending the meat used: beef and lamb.
 When the word "gulyas" is mentioned without any qualifier, beef is implied.

Sautee some onions, when soft but not burned put cubed beef in skillet.  Add
generous amount of red pepper, small amount of cumin seed, salt and pepper
and mix.  Make sure that while adding the spices the heat is turned down as
the red pepper(paprika) has a tendency to turn bitter if burned.
Once the stuff is mixed add water.  Keep in mind that gulyas in Hungary is a
soup, thus a lot of water is to be added.
Adding a tomato and a bell pepper to the soup improves the flavor.  Some
people even add some spatzle or cubed potatoes to it.

If nobody takes it seriously, how come they publicly humiliated Blair
about it?  It is Charles-type  democracy everywhere - let the poor
dears vote for a policy, we will do something completely different
for their own good... Hm. Familiar sentiment. Why they bother
calling it democracy?

Yes, the Serbs want what they consider their historic land.  I am aware of
some nationalist Serbian sentiments of "Serbia up to Visegrad".  They claim
that Serbs were in this area up to the time before the Hungarian conquest--
their historic land.

An interesting piece of news appeared today in "Hirmondo," the
English-language electronic news summary. It is the summary of a longer
article which appeared in *Magyar Nemzet.* The title: "Ro1zsadomb:
Belgium--Ko3ba1nya: Syria." According to the article, among all countries
which provide reliable data to the World Health Organization the death rate
among Hungarian middle aged men is the very worst. The figures can be
compared to the situation at the end of the 1920s and early 1930s. Within the
capital there is a span of six years between the lowest and the highest
figures of life expectancy. The second district's [the Ro1zsadomb, or Hill of
Roses, a very well-off neighborhood] statistics are the same as those of
Belgium, the nineteenth district's [Ko3ba1nya, a working-class district] can
be compared to the statistics of Syria.

I wonder what kind of conclusions can be drawn from these highly divergent

Shortly after the elections, during the first weeks of the Horn government, I
noticed a certain ambivalence toward membership in NATO in Horn's statements
on the subject. Although there was a spirited discussion, pro and con, on
this subject between Zoli Fekete and myself, my position was bolstered by
statements echoing my position by a Hungarian political scientist. However,
in the last couple of months, I noticed new enthusiasm toward membership,
especially in statements made by the minister of defense, Gyorgy Keleti. This
morning, however, I noticed the following report:

>the Alliance of Young Democrats on 30 November criticized Prime
>Minister Gyula Horn for his statement on NATO during his visit to
>Warsaw in November, MTI reports. Horn had said that Hungary
>supported an "intensive dialogue with Moscow in order to

I must say this sounds pretty terrible. Almost as if we were still living at
the time when Hungary was totally dependent on the Soviet Union and every
time it made the slightest foreign policy move it had to consult with Moscow.
As the matter of fact, Hungary should not discuss this matter with Russia at
all. It is better to leave this task to the United States and the other NATO
