So in fact we paid 2.7 billion and received 4.2 billion... looks like you don't understand what the CAP is.
Maybe. Explain it to me...
All these huge EU subsidies for agriculture sector exist to protect European farmers from cheaper competition from outside of EU. Poland outside of EU wouldn't really need that as costs here are lower and medium tariffs would be enough to protect domestic producers.
Polish farmers won`t need subisidies when out of Union?
OK, again I need to tell you: go and tell it to a Polish farmer. If you come back without a pitched fork in your back, it means you are a lucky guy. :):):)
I see some inconsistency. In a previous quote of yours you said that Polish costs are lower. How does it make Polish farmers less competitive when they get lower subsidies if their costs are lower too? I don`t understand it ....
If there was a real free market of agriculture goods inside of EU without any subsidies and limits of production, which they imposed on us. So saying that we should be happy that they "give us billions for agriculture" is a total nonsense, we would be much better without that stupid system.
:):):) Does it mean we should leave the Union because farmer`s subsidies are unfair?
I disagree. The costs of agricultural production are lower in Poland, that is why the subsidies are lower too. E..g, how much does a Polish farmer pay to a hired worker who picks up strawberries in the farmer`s field? 1 zloty per kilo.
How much is the wage in the West? 0.80 euro = 3 zlotys per kilo.
Nonsense. In Poland ~14% of working population are classified as farmers (often just to have KRUS insurence) and in EU15 countries agriculture is usually making 2-3% of GNP.
Yes, that`s right. I had old data. Sorry.
Christ, what are you talking about ? I've never said that each Polish farmer should get the same money as average farmer in old EU, I'm saying that for the same quantity of goods they should get the same subsidies (and now of course they don't) or else that's unfair competition harming our economy, not any "goodies from EU".
Subsidies are not given for a quantity of goods. They are given for units of arable land.
But if you mention quantity, do you realise that Polish field efficiency in much lower than Western?
"Entitled"... with so huge burocracy and some projects being reject by Eurocrats without any serious reasons,
What did you expect? Paradise right away? :):):)
But that's not the end. We need additional a few thousand burocrats to handel these things and that cost a lot. A few % of these funds are spend on "training and promotion", so "European funds" are spend on teaching people how to use "European funds"...
My advice is: become a teacher then... :):):)
Economically neutral is still OK.
But don`t forget geopolitics and it is even more importnat than economy. Do you ever study the history of Poland? Why did Poland lose all major wars and risings for the past 200 years?
