Symmetries and Asymmetries in the Sustainable Development of European Union versus Romania

Viorica Puscaciu, Florin-Dan Puscaciu, Rose-Marie Puscaciu


Sustainable development is an extremely important topic, both theoretically and practically, so as: for theory it supplies the principal concepts of maximum importance for developing the present society, under sustainability conditions, and also pragmatic, as it bases the coordinates which the present behaviour of mankind has to center upon, in order to leave viable legacy – a green planet – for the future generations. It is exactly for these considerations our objective is to analyze this problem from an social-economical point of view, together with the help of statistical instruments, both as for the European Union level, and also for groups of countries, with a run down on Romania, and this is our research hypothesis. We consider appropriate this kind of approach, using as research method – qualitative method, survey and observation, that are our workable instruments for this study, in order to determine the Romania’s place in this problem, but also to establish a series of priorities in order to reduce the disparities that differentiate our country of others, inside European Union. We consider suitable this way of approaching of the subject, as per Joseph Schumpeter said: „the economical aspects could be studied by the economical theory, statistical-mathematics, and history”. So, such a modelling brings rigor and social understanding of mankind’s problems. Besides these aspects, this theme also imposes a morality connotation, showing a thematic generosity, and even a pragmatic one, being a pure dot that our generation leaves for the future ones.

The gathering of the data for this study was made having as basis the data from Eurostat, and the main results are ment to point out the disparities between Romania and European Union in this problem of sustainable development, as well as the necessity of eradicate them.
