Roquefort vs Big Mac: Globalization and Its Others – revised Hungarian edition

Roquefort vs Big Mac : Globalization and Its Others

Being an ‘antiglobalizationist’ comes easy as a political label but as a theoretical endeavor, it is more difficult. Globalization encompasses a bundle of meanings. The paper disentangles some of the multiple implications of globalization and its purported enemies through the Big Mac-Roquefort opposition; it examines the <e1>taste differential</e1> of the two products, their symbolism and their stakes in the construction of ethnic, cultural and class identities. The simplistic opposition between globalization and its enemies is reinterpreted in the context of commercialization, Americanization, democratization, high-and massculture and-consumption, only to be cast in the age-old tensions of modernity. L'article tente de distinguer des significations diverses données à globalisation en partant de l'opposition entre un «Big Mac» et le Roquefort. Examen est fait de la différence de goût entre les deux produits, de leur symbolisme et de leur rôle dans la construction des identités ethniques, culturelles et de classe. L'opposition simpliste entre pro-et anti-globalisation est réinterprétée dans le contexte élargi des tensions de la modernité. Dieser Aufsatz versucht zwischen den verschiedenen Bedeutungen der Globalisierung zu unterscheiden ausgehend vom Gegensatz zwischen »Big Mac» und dem Roquefort. Es wird untersucht, inwieweit der Unterschied in Geschmack, Symbolik und Bedeutung beim Aufbau ethnischer, kultureller und sozialer Aspekte zum Tragen kommen. Die simple Unterscheidung zwischen Befürworter und Gegner der Globalisierung wird neu interpretiert im erweiterten Rahmen der Spannungen der Moderne.

He That Hath to Him Shall be Given : Housing Privatization in Budapest after State Socialism

The article investigates the post-state-socialist transition in Budapest, Hungary and its implication to the privatization of state-owned houses and discusses the relation between housing privatization to transition debate. Furthermore, the article describes at length the process of privatization in Budapest and reveals the relationship between privatization and housing inequality. The article also compares the results to a similar housing survey conducted in Moscow, Russia. The article seeks to explain the characteristic trajectories of the post-state-socialist housing transition. Housing privatization is the main element of the transition in the urban context; it demolishes the material basis of state socialist housing arrangements, and signals the end of the state's role as dominant landlord – a peculiarity of state socialist urban phenomena. Ownership change, in the way it has been accomplished, polarizes the chances of former tenants. This is so because housing privatization is marked by continuity with state socialist urban arrangements, and is bound to increase housing inequalities. To substantiate the argument, the article relates housing privatization to the transition debate; provides a brief narrative of the process in Budapest; and scrutinizes the relationship between privatization and inequality in housing by examining quantitative evidence from a detailed Budapest housing survey.
