This chapter discusses the most important social domain that is not organized along ethnic lines in Transylvania, namely the economy. The chapter aims to answer two general questions: First, to what extent is Romania’s democracy and economic institutional system able to capitalize on the potential assets stemming from ethnic diversity? Second, what kind of cultural, structural, and network resources do Transylvanian Hungarians possess, to what extent and how do they succeed in utilizing them in the economy? The main conclusion of the chapter is that the economic sector is not perceived as being ethnically divided in Transylvania; there are, however, a number of initiatives that may point toward an ethnically coordinated economic sector.
