Some may disagree that economic partiotism exists or should exist,
Yes, in other countries it also exists, mostly as native oriented customers.
In Poland, for about 20 years, there has been a campaign of awarding Polish companies with this logo:
[i]The roots of the emblem "Poland Now" dates back to 1991 that is the beginning of the transformation of the economy and the creation of a free market in Poland. The opening of borders for imported goods has allowed the public to explore new possibilities for human consumption. On the other hand the Polish companies were inefficient and poorly managed, Polish technical thought was dying, and Polish products do not withstand competition with the imported.
Then came the initiative Polish Promotional Programme and the concept of Polish trade promotion. The idea behind this program was to promote Polish companies, as well as their support in the field of marketing in an increasingly competitive market. The graphic symbol was designed by Professor Henry Chyliński (author of the character of the Polish Radio and Orlen), and the author of verbal slogan Now Poland was Wiktor Zborowski.
Ideal but still hard to achieve. You forget how much Poland was ruined by 45 years of communism and WW2 before. What are 3 essential things to change socialist economy into capitalist one? Capital, capital, capital. Poland didn`t have any capital in 1989, the treasury was completely empty, burdened with giant debts. We even had to borrow 1 billion $ from IMF to secure the initial stage of monetary transformation. That is why Polish national companies and banks had to be sold to foreign investors. Otherwise, they would have gone bankrupt anyway.
What Poland has managed to do for these 24 years is amazing, but it was impossible to catch up with the best.
