Abstract

In his speech "to the nation" on Wednesday, 22nd June, 2022, Czech Prime Minister Petr Fiala informed the Czech public that his government was going to support the impoverished population with CZK 66 billion. Unfortunately, he did not specify how this will be done and there are fears that it will again be across-the-board financial aid,also helping people who do not need it, and that this across-the-board financial aid will cause inflation. Why does the Czech Government not simplify the existing system of social assistance for poor people? The government has no vision or programme, because it bases its decisions not on scientific studies but on subjective personal opinions of its ministers. Jan Čulík talks about these problems with sociologist and writer Stanislav Biler. The interview was broadcast by the Czech cable TV station Regionalnitelevize.cz from Friday 24th June, 2022.
