Ok, but stop telling people the don't know anything about Poland becuse they don't live here when you don't live here.
I thought you were all about providing links and articles? When you thought i lived in Poland you basically dismissed my observations but now you seem to think you have an angle because you discovered i dont live there. Whether i live there or not at this moment in time is irrelivant, i have more than enough experience to justify the statements. I have been directly involved in numerous Polish businesses, Ive been travelling there regularly since 2002 and lived there for almost 6 years from late 2005.
Your experience is what exactly? you have an overseas IT related income, anything else?
Its difficult for me to keep quiet with people like you arouind, i mean in one thread we have you talking about the Polish economy and property prices but in another youre saying communist blocks last 200 years and that Gdynia is a godforsaken country village.
Providing people with jobs and giving them an income is a bad thing according to you? Boy O Boy, you are thicker than i thought. Still waiting for the economist, don't be shy.
I never said big business was bad, thats what you assumed i meant, I said big businesses only cares about them selves. Most of the Poles working at LG as with most of the other big companies are paid peanuts. In LG Phillips in Tyniec Maly the managerial positions are mainly held by Koreans.
Its obvious that these types of companies will employ Poles theyre not exaclty going to import workers (although they would if they could) they wouldnt be alllowed to set up if they didnt employ locals.
His entire argument is that his person experience out weights not only all the scientific evidence but the personal experience of anyone else.
Wrong again, where have i said Polands GDP is not positive or not growing? my argument is that Polands growth is not reflected in the standard of living. Whats your argument?
So now he's switched to Ad hominem attacks, the last stand of the desperate.
I wouldnt call it a switch. I'll be here till the last weg make no mistake about that, you shouldnt assume so much.
If Poland is booming (and to be fair the points for it are there) then what's the problem?
Is it fair to say "Poland is booming?" Maybe it shouldn't be an all or nothing statement to begin with?
Thats a good summary.
I think many assumed too much following Polands EU accession, on many levels there was over speculation, the big businesses had seen the booms in countries such as Ireland and Spain following their accessions and pounced on Poland in a bid not to miss the boat, there was a premature property boom also. The current property boom is a perfect example of what happens when people speculate prematurely, it is absolutely rediculous.
Weg: If a reporter called me for an interview and published an extended version of the above with tables and graphs in a respected paper would it then become a credible source?
The funny thing about people like weg and their opinions is that he has a foreign income, if that little safety net was pulled out from underneath him he would be financially wiped out in a country like Poland. He is essentially a back seat driver.
