Hungary’s history is one of consistent evolution and struggle. A wide range of elements contributed to the restoration of Democracy in Hungary in 1989. Hungary has a history of continued friction and conflict since the beginning of World War 1 due to the internal and external factors that have affected this country. To analyse what internal factors aided the long awaited collapse of Communism in 1989 and how Hungary’s barrier with the west was removed, to allow movement from the east to the west, we must look at the build-up and what external as well as internal factors contributed to this. Prior to the end of World War 1, Hungary was part of an Empire with Austria, formally known as Austria-Hungary, the leader of this empire was Francis Josef 1. After the split people looked back on the period as the ‘good old days’ the people of Hungary saw the dual monarchy as peaceful and prosperous however it had not always been a peaceful time, as the Magyars tried to remove the restrictions of the Habsburg empire but this uprising was silenced swiftly. In 1867 a delegation of Hungarians led by Ferenc Deak ‘finally came to an agreement with the Habsburgs and so the dualistic system of the Austrian-Hungarian Monarchy was born and peace descended across the land’ the era that followed before the assassination in Sarajevo, was seen as hugely successful for Hungary as King Josef 1 led his nation into the modern era with the increase of industrialisation, nonetheless Agriculture remained the main industry of this flourishing state. This could be seen as a minor internal reason as to why Communism collapsed in 1989. Due to the fact that many Hungarians reminisced about those times. Hungary’s economy has been volatile ever since the separation of the Austro-Hungarian nation after the First World War Before 1918, Hungary had made big strides with its economy, although after the war it all but stagnated. Sugar P argued that the focal factor for the failure of the economic system was ‘the lack of most raw materials and the disappearance of the large market of the Dual Monarchy’ on the other hand another key point for the failure as discussed by Hanak P was the increased density of Hungary’s population after the spilt from Austria, as well as the sluggishness of Agriculture industry, ‘the yield of wheat per acre did not increase and livestock production, even as late as 1938, was behind that of 1911’ Hungary was slowly going into an inactive period and reverting to the early 18th century. The bethelan government had to keep balance of payments for reparations from the war, on top of paying loans from foreign countries, which ended up requiring further loans to pay them. This suggests that the economy leading up to the crash in 1929 was in a dire situation, when the depression hit its peak in 1931. Molnar argued that Hungary had ‘one of the weakest’ economy’s in Europe at the time due the fact that its growth rate was only 1.5%. From the mid 1930’s Hungary was aided by Fascist Germany and Italy, an example of this was the trade treaty signed in 1934 by Gyula Gömbös, it gave Hungarians a better price for their wheat and crops, but all of the money made by the increased price of crops had to be spent on German industrial goods, unfortunately for Hungary however it led to them being tied to Germany throughout the war. Hitler felt that Hungary had a destiny with the 3rd Reich to be superior over other races, mainly because ‘6% of the Hungarian population were German speaking’ which linked into Hitler’s ideology of uniting all German speaking people, along with the history of Hungary and Germanys alliance, which had been strong throughout both world wars. This could be one of the main reasons as to why the Fuhrer decided to intervene. After the war, when Hungary was ‘liberated’ by the Soviets, the economic state was in complete disregard. After a tough time in the War Hungary was forced to pay reparations of ‘200 million dollars’ which were seen as impossible to pay and led Hungary into a dire state which wasn’t helped by the Russians forcing the population to begin to plant the bases of communism ,as collectivisation and industrialization was put into action, this provoked the economy to fail to a larger extent as trade along with market places were demolished, as well as the Soviets dismantling whole factory’s to take back to Russia as part of reparations that the Russians felt they were owed, despite the deprived condition of the country they in a sense taking over . ‘food shortages were caused by collectivisation’ Molnar suggests that Russians defiance to defend and consistently use collectivization would ‘counter all other acts to allow the growth of the economy’ This implies that Russians stubbornness to their economic ideology would eventually lead to the collapse of communism in the bloc-states. All of these factors created a rife atmosphere for revolution and uprising against their communist rulers. In 1968 the NEM (New Economic Mechanism) was introduced by the central committee of the Hungarian Socialist workers party, its objective was to overhaul the Hungarian economy, it allowed workers on collective farms to work after hours to produce and sell their own goods, Hoesnch suggests that there were many flaws with this policy such as lack of capital which in the end caused ‘arguments over areas of competence’ such flaws were then cemented as in 1972 the regime began restricting marketing mechanisms, which Hoesnch thought that it showed ‘that collectivisation and industrial combines would receive unwavering support, n>GET ANSWER
