Why blame Eu for 15% tax regulation? Blame the Polish government which imposes tax as high as 22% on most products and services.
I don't blame anybody, Pawian. Merely stating a fact that EU does, in fact,
regulate some taxes (and many other things connected with economy).
The stakes of taxes in Poland is a completely different matter.
Do you also mean full freedom of selling Polish goods in Europe markets?
Is Europan market closed for Norwegian or Swiss products? Or is it closed
for American or Chinese goods? Are these countries in EU?
Being outside EU doesn't mean that trading with the union is THAT less profitable.
From this formula it looks like you have consumed some part of 570
billion euro (...) So no point of counting them as a Christmas present for EU from
What??? Polish GDP as a Christmas present for EU? LOL - you're really
confused, Nathan. No wonder Ukraine has financial problems if its population
presents economical knowledge similar to yours.
Also when you make per capita calculations, I think it is unfair to put children, retired and ill people into the equation.
Why is it unfair? Quite the contrary - those people require the most assistance
from the state. The state has to support them financially, plus they also use
money from EU subsidies - take part in educational programs, drive on roads
built or renovated with EU money etc. etc. They should, by all means, be included
in the calculation.
According to my knowledge of math, you have got 3.1 billion euro!!! for Christmas present.
Which is roughly 0.53% of this year's Polish GDP of about 580 billion euro
(slight increase to last year's GDP).
And you are not satisfied? What else do you want?
I am very satisfied and grateful to our EU friends as I stated very clearly
in my first post :) However, as I said before - I don't agree with people
who exaggerate EU's help for Poland and make it look like we're being
supported by old EU countries. That's not true. We could do without this
money - no worries.
he money invested in multitude of projects will give future jobs for so many people, who will be able to work and bring bread home
Actually, flooding a country with money doesn't neccessarily mean "future jobs
for many people". Ask Germans from the west how much money they pumped
into DDR and the results they got :)
From your skills in basic calculations you better start thinking :) about changing your job to a more flexible one :)
I'm quite happy with my job and my income, thank you. My family seems satisfied
with my calculating ability too, so I see no reason to change anything :)SO, TO SUM THINGS UP:1.
I am grateful for the 3 billion euro we got from EU. Every little helps.2.
The well being of Poland, Polish people and their families is being taken
care of, not by EU, but by Polish people themselves
Again - we are very satisfied with the 3 billion
euro we got from EU this year.
They are a very nice addition to the 577 billion
euro we made ourselves :):):)
