    This article deals with public, political discourse over One Belt One Road (OBOR) initiative in Poland. OBOR has recently become very popular in Poland as it encapsulates the noticeable fascination on China and on geopolitics among parts of Polish society. This article describes this phenomenon and delaminates the mainstream political discourse over OBOR into two main strands: great geopolitical and/or geoeconomic chance (pro-OBOR discourse) and security threat (anti-OBOR). The advocates of the former see the project as a great geopolitical and economic opportunity for Poland; the supporters of the latter find it a threat to Polish security and/or economic interests. This discourse echoes internal divisions within current Polish government on its China policy and can be observed against the background of China’s dynamic enter to Central and Eastern Europe, particularly to Czech Republic, Hungary and Serbia.

    Poland is not well prepared for forthcoming changes in global economy mo­del. Polish economy tied to old stock-source model will lose competition ad­vantages in coming decades if government will not react properly. Suitable area for acting is already being shaped – new climate-energy policy which is constructed by world elites druring UN Conferences of Parties (COPs). Future changes are mainly: redirecting economy form stock-source model to flow­-source model and final revision of free trade ideology along international relations within trade and goods exchanges. One of the most important issues considered during global talks are: intergenerational justice of growth and pending increase of demographical, ecological and resoruce pressures. Author of article claims that polish government does not have any ideas to cope with problems which are direct consequences of changing global mosaic.

    Markets, countries and politics. Selected political and economic problems of the Middle East in the modern world

    Control and access to resources and trade routes have always conditioned and determined the position of a given country on the world stage and its wealth. For many centuries, the Middle East region has been one of the most important regions in the world, both due to its geographical location, as a link between East and West, and natural resources available to individual countries. Despite the enormous diversity of Middle Eastern countries and the danger of over-generalization, it is worth looking at the whole area, which in the future may become an important center in the global economy and an important point of world politics.
