Yet when about 50,000 demonstrators staged an anti-government protest in Wenceslas Square here last month, the successful young economist was among them. The rally, which called for the resignations of the Czech Republic's leading left-wing and right-wing politicians, was the largest such gathering here since the 1989 "Velvet Revolution."
