Czechoslovak economic transformation of the 1990s, presented as the key to the
transformation of totalitarian society into a democracy, was at the same time publicly
understood as the process of wealth redistribution – from the state to the people. This
process formed a new, up to the present day lasting structures of political and economic
elite. The ten richest contemporary Czechs came to their wealth in this process of property
redistribution. Despite its enormous influence on the character of our contemporary society,
the transformation process is still veiled in mystery. However, while the issue has not lost its
importance, after almost two decades a number of that day politicians and other involved
people are finally willing to speak openly even about their own failures.
