What do locals in Poland feel most proud of? What represents them as a country? Within society, technology, and science, what does the future of Poland look like in those categories? If you had to represent Poland on the front of a Passport, journal, etc. what would you put?

Very bleak.

If you had to represent Poland on the front of a Passport, journal, etc. what would you put?

I'm rather happier than proud of beautiful country. I was lucky to live almost 30 years in deep forest between 15 lakes. I have a breathtaking view from my balcony. Some nations must be satisfied with a desert only.

a desert only

Both are beautiful in their own way. In Poland it's the forests that are exceptional. I hope they remain unspoilt.

My wife just got back from a mushroom hunt. Loads of maszlaki, quite a few prawdziwek, and a few parasol mushroom (can't remember their Polish name). This summer we almost got sick of kurki.

Very bleak.

Eastern and Central European economies are expected to do better than their counterparts in the west of the continent during the coming decades. However, while GDP growth in Poland should be healthy at 4.5% a year on average, a decreasing population may take the edge off the growing economy.

Poland like many European nations struggles to find its identity in federalist Europe, young Poles are looking to their past history as a form of identity. Instead of celebrating valentines day they opt for kupala night, this but one examples of slavic pagan past entering into young Ploes lives. Poland is very young in the European game its only been 13 years since joining the EU club.... The reconstruction funds are great, freedom to travel and work in the EU is awesome. The sense of peace was reassuring until the Nato started its expansion strategy into the Ukraine, with over a million Ukrainians now in Poland, the country has its own migrant struggle.

The face of the Polish passport should be blessed with the portrait of ' king casmir III the great' he was a modern day multiculturist and was partial to the old fling with many a jewish princess :-).

JR, why are CE and EE economies poised to make great strides. Poland is a exporting country and relies on strong western economies in EU to buy their products and services since the Russian embargo.

It was based on GDP at Purchasing Power Parity (PPP) which allows for a more accurate measure of what countries will be producing in the next generation.

JR,

Let me tell you for what its worth, there is a hidden financial crisis in Poland, debt to asset ratio is reported at 55% it allegedly closer to the 65% level, financials are released and revised 6 months down the line, this has been going on for years...

After 2020 a financial crisis will hit Poland this is the very reason smart money are selling Polish assets at inflated prices now....

There's a lot of debt hidden away in some very interesting places, and that's before you even talk about ZUS which is effectively bankrupt.

If the real debt level is as low as 65%, I'd be surprised.

The only thing that can help Poland at the minute is that there's still plenty of good assets in public hands that could be sold quickly.

There a mini boom in Warsaw on buy to let with a guaranteed 7-8% over three years. The quality if the buildings are shoddy and will not last 50 years. the developers are just using land they bought on the cheap from PKP. My call is 2021/2 there will be a recession in Poland it's coming. If the Russ decide to leave tanks and battalions on the border with the Baltic three, we have a new Ukrainian situation on our hands. The Russ are doing all they can to press Poland.

Poland represents the future of the Polish people. Unlike many Western nations, which seek hell bent on throwing away their identity and nation for the sake of multiculturalism. As someone who holds dual Polish and Canadian citizenship, and who is currently living ( and have lived for most of my life ) in Canada this greatly brings me joy. I know multiculturalism on the whole doesn't work, it destroys identity and community, and as I grow older I desire to return to my people and my country and start my life there. There may be no inherent goal in life, and in the West I see many people turn to mindless hedonism/materialism as an outlet for their lack of purpose. The people in the West are throwing away their past, and by extension, who they are to become globally minded consumers. I realized a few years ago I couldn't go down the same path.

Poland is both the past and the future, I am Poland and Poland is the Polish people. Nothing has brought me greater joy than beginning to work towards permanently moving back ( I want to finish my degree here first ) and eventually starting a large family in Poland with the right person. Poland for me represents not just my future, but the future of my family. It brings me great joy that " progressives " are a fringe minority in Poland, and their destructive ideology isn't taking root in Poland. I think that Poland may not be the richest or the strongest country in the world, but at the end of the day, we are Poland and we will remain Poland. A home for the Polish nation.
