PRESS REVIEW FROM SLOVENIA, February 28, 1992
Ljubljana, 28 February - VEČER: WH0'S PAYING FOR DRINKS? - Finance minister Dušan Šešok rushed a new amount before the Slovenians, which is to fill the state treasury. The government has still not succeeded in agreeing about whether 171.2 billion tolars will be enough for this year's budget or not. What will the parliament say to this new incentive is difficult to say. The total public expenditure is to stop somewhere near 58 per cent of the national product. Still acceptable for parliament thinks Šešok, while some other ministers - Janša, Kranjc - have already stated that this will not pass. Probably there will be others, as it is obvious that everybody will have to give up something as they are supposed to receive a fifth less money. The dilemma of where the right measure is for how much the society should give for public expenditure and where the one which assures the undisturbed operation of the state on a suitable level, cannot be just a simple calculation in which all get the same amount of less and the same amount of more, writes Jelka Zupanič.
