Welcome back :)

Poland's economy is doing okay - at least they are not heading for recession like the UK, Germany and Spain.

Why worry about the currency? The £ isn't very strong at the moment but as long as prices on the high street stay okay it doesn't affect me unless Im travelling.

I love the cold weather, but it doesn't get that cold here, it just rains and rains and rains, so Im jealous :(

As for your wife, she probably has a good job and is happy - if you love your wife then you will love Poland - eventually :)

Hmmm Lir wonders how Poland will miss the World recession, maybe Gordon Brown needs to go to Poland to find out . Wish the effects of the credit crunch were as simplistic Shelley :) the worst is yet to come. I already have noticed ( as indeed many others have ) how my shopping costs have at least doubled !

Recession and rising inflation will affect every persons cost of living, make the most of the high street as it is now, it won't last !

Im aware of that, it's been looming for over 12 months. I seem to remeber making a remark and you mocking me.

UK's third largest holiday firm has just gone bust: news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/business/7611639.stm

It's not just the customers left stranded, but the thousands of staff that will lose their jobs as well :(

I don't mock people. Debating is not mocking people.

I just dont't understand how Poland could be immune to recession. We all were aware of looming recession and inflation for quite some time( its been in all the papers )

What does mock mean anyway ? I' m not familiar with using that word .

:)

Yes Daisy I just saw that on the news too.

Why worry about the currency?

Maybe it's no worry for you. For Polish business the strength of the Zloty is bad for exports. For Poles working abroad the money they earn is worth less when they sent it home (noimmi will be pleased). For people like me who want to move there it means I won't be able to afford to buy a particularly nice home outright.

I can't cut and paste am on my iPhone ATM. Your post number 2 refers you say that at least Poland isn't heading for a recession ? That's why I asked what makes Poland immune to it then if the three other Countries you mention are ?

As you said it wont affect me and will affect those that are sending money out of the UK, damn!

This I understand, but at present their economy seems to be stable and no where near as bad as some others in the EU.

about the economy a couple of factors for polands growth. more economically developed countries have less room for growth and have reached a sort of saturation point if u will. uk has a services based economy which goes first in a world slowdown. less money less services demanded. secondly poland has the eu cup in 2012 to work towards and that stimulates the economy specifically construction. warsaw has a staggering amount of construction at this time and nationwide there are numerous projects.

yeah so it all depends on your situation. some of us want the zloty to stay strong, as strong as possible, since we earn zloties and we like to travel abroad as often as possible. its good for us, bad for tourists who come here and bad for exporters...
