The vast majority of people who had to buy their property in Warsaw on the open market and thus pay the going rate for that property during the last couple of decades have mortgages in foreign currencies (usually CHF but some still in USD) and to them that is not just "paper play money".
I imagine most people weren't so fortunate as to have access to large properties at knock-down prices.
I know someone who has a very modest flat (just under 60sqm) with a CHF mortgage and he's wondering exactly what he's going to do if the PLN drops even further against the CHF. It's a flat in a 1970's commie block in a normal part of the city, so not exactly someone wealthy.
I'm fortunate that my mortgage is in PLN, but many others aren't in the same boat. Polonius sneering at them shows that he's every bit of the elite that he claims to hate so much.Merged
: PiS to cancel road building contracts
As we all said, PiS will gain power, then destroy the country piece by piece. PO were embarking on a second wave of road construction that would give us a modern road network by 2020, but now, they plan to cancel the contracts signed by PO to save cash to pay for their unrealistic election promises. What a surprise.
Obviously, the aim is to leave the country stuck in the 1980's - make it more difficult to travel, easier to control the people.
