Black and Greens organic chocolate, that is all I see form Poland, I want to see more
That's because you're thousands of miles away and you have absolutely no idea what is being sold in Western Europe.
You can't make everything but should focus on those industries that produce a middle class lifestyle. Ok, china is making that for pennies, I get it, then you don't want those jobs anyway. But that is what you get in the global market, investment goes to the cheapest bidder. That is how the your Politicians are selling Poland. Our workers make less and we will give you tax breaks. I hate that thinking.
And what industries in Poland can produce a middle class lifestyle? Don't forget that the middle class lifestyle is mostly based upon services - which can cause the economic ruin of a country when demand for those services dry up. As for Polish politicians, can you even name one?
The Zl gets weaker and the importers got spooked? Why? they are killing it at the Kantor, right? Weaker ZL should pull move investment into Poland not less, as long as prices don't change much
No, they aren't killing it. Importers must sign a contract to buy x product at y price in CHF, EUR or USD. An unpredictable exchange rate causes huge problems for importers and exporters.
The EU doesn't give a crap about Poland.
Yawn. That's why the EU has handed out another 100 billion Euro to Poland, right? That's why Poland is full of huge EU funded projects, right?
Poland has more to lose than to gain.
Only an American would say that - because you have no idea how the EU helps us in ordinary life.
What are you going to do be controlled by Germany and play by their rules? Yeah like any Pole wants that.
Do you know anything about how the European Union works? No?
Why do you need things like this Poland? Return this and that, it is a joke.......EU is a joke
There are clear rules about the usage of such funds. Poland only has herself to blame if she couldn't get the paperwork right. Anyway, 34 million Euro is a small drop in the ocean compared to what Poland got at the same time.
I agree with your posts, Poland should give back all that it has taken from the EU and should emulate Norway or Switzerland. Keep the EU at arm's length.
Except both of those countries are obliged to take part in many EU institutions without having a voice - Norway pays around a billion Euro a year, Switzerland was obliged to adopt a lot of EU law - in short, they have to pay without having a vote. It's a normal thing for the uneducated to claim that the Norwegians/Swiss have a good deal - they don't.
At what rate are these pay backs in interest and time? At what point do they put a country in so much debt that they are colonized like Africa and poor South American nations?
What are you on about? These funds are not to be "paid back", they are grants. EU structural funds cannot put a country in debt!
That's the objective, look at Greece, they are owned. These financial bandits will know every structural weakness you have and exploit it, it is only a matter of time that they control you from the outside. Please do not let it happen.
They have no-one to blame but themselves. A simple analysis of Greece shows that they were spending money for years that they didn't have.
Many conspiracy theories point to the death of your President in 2010, being one that would bring you close to total commitment to the EU and adopting the euro, do you find this true? or was it Russia Terrorist?
Perhaps you should learn what the Constitutional role of the Polish President is first before making comments like that. Here's a hint - the President has no real bearing on issues such as political alignment.
The first is, when it comes to questions of finance and work ethic and paying taxes, is Poland closer to
Arguably B, heading towards A - Euro entry would probably speed up such a transition.
