DAVOR Huić, president of the Lipa association, on the eve of the upcoming parliamentary elections in which he is running as a candidate, published a video entitled How a boy from Siget became a fighter for lower taxes: a life story.
Huić: I had a happy and carefree childhood
Huić was born in Zagreb in 1963. The video shows the park in Siget where he grew up and the building where he lived for the first 20 years of his life.
“I can say that I had a happy and carefree childhood. That’s when I first came in contact with the dark side of life… With topics I still deal with today. And that is politics, the monopoly of force, justice “, said Huić and said that when he was about five or six years older, the boys” stroked his pills “.
“They actually charged us taxes or racketeering for being stronger than us,” Huic said.
Sport has always been an important part of Huić’s life
On the Sava embankment, he discovered that sport has always been an important part of his life and that his parents were athletes. He practiced rowing, mountaineering, archery, parachuting, karate, etc.
“We are a nation that is prone to sports, we love sports and we are good at it. And yet we do not know those things that we have learned to apply to life in sports “, concluded Huić.
“If sport is a metaphor for life, why are we good at metaphor and not in life,” Huic wondered.
He studied at the Faculty of Philosophy during the new wave
He enrolled at the Faculty of Philosophy in 1980 or 1981. He recalled that it was a time of a new wave and revealed that it was the first time he had encountered political philosophy. He said he read John Locke who defined it in a liberal sense.
He worked in Petrinja as a professor and wanted to enroll in a doctoral program
In 1989 he got a job as a professor of philosophy, logic and psychology in Petrinja.

“The interesting thing is that my first salary was a billion dinars,” Huić revealed, adding that at the time he was working on a master’s degree in philosophy of spirit that he intended to enroll in a doctoral program in Cambridge. And he enrolled at King’s College and received a scholarship from Cambridge.
During the war he became a Reuters correspondent
But then the war started in 1991, so the idea of leaving his parents and sister while the country was falling apart was inconceivable. He started working for the Reuters news agency as a correspondent for Croatia and Bosnia and Herzegovina.
I was the first foreign reporter to enter Knin with our army, just the second day after the liberation of Knin. That report ended up on the cover of the Guardian, “Huic revealed, adding that it was a school of life for him. When the war ended, he was faced with a choice: either to continue writing about the war and war zones in Reuters, or to stay in Zagreb and deal with peacetime topics. He opted for the latter because he got married and had children.
“When you have children, you look at the danger of death a little differently,” Huic explained. He said he followed politics and political issues, but that there were more and more economic topics.
After the war, he wrote about economics, and in 2002 he went into entrepreneurship
Then the capital market opened, and the Zagreb Stock Exchange began to function. So he started writing about economics, macroeconomics and business. That period lasted until 2002 when he switched to entrepreneurship.
“In recent years, I have been less and less involved in my business, and I have spent more and more time on public work. It is a passion and a need to say wrong in a world where you see everyone working, ‘Wait a minute, this is how it should be!’ ”He explained.
When Croatia entered the global financial crisis in 2009, three Croatian governments, Huic said, responded incorrectly to the challenge.
He advocates pro-market reforms
“This has led to the longest recession in Europe, with 150,000 people out of work. And then I started speaking publicly and acting as an entrepreneur in 2012, ”he said. He added that he advocated for market reforms, reduction of public debt, tax reforms and other things that would, as he said, “make Croatia a more successful, richer, more prosperous and happier country.”
“Now I am running for the Croatian Parliament in order to continue this fight,” he said.
