Keywords: Regional inequalities | Transition | Polarised development

This material addresses the topic of regional disparities. The ground for the study is offered by the classical work made by J. G. Williamson (1965), who examined first on a wide base the development-dependency of regional differences. Former researches (Nemes-Nagy, J. 1987) have basically confirmed this relationship, probably making the course of development of regional inequalities more exact since having the available new information. The author concludes that the alternative is still opened both in social and in spatial sense for Hungary and for countries following the same course: the endurable differentiated “European” way and the more polarised, by crises frequently affected “Latin-American” way.
