A key advantage within the country is the relatively low level of debt among households and firms, leading to a high degree of financial stability and a strong portfolio of banking assets. Finally, compared to its Central and East European neighbours, Poland has a relatively big and developing internal market that proved quite resilient to the economic slowdown. In short, Poland has a flexible, entrepreneurial and healthy economy that went through a profound restructuring before the outbreak of the global crisis. Every Polish entrepreneur confirms that, compared with the purgatory of the economic transition period between 1990 and 2007, the current economic troubles look much more moderate.
The biggest long-term risk stems not from finance and economics, but from politics. As Poland stays outside the Eurozone, the country enjoys a lot of freedom in shaping its fiscal and monetary policy to counteract the recessionary impact. There is, however, a price to be paid. The prospects of deeper economic and financial integration within the Eurozone, leaving Poland as a second-class EU member with decreasing influence on the bloc's policy and future budget, is an easily imaginable scenario. But the real nightmare, albeit still not plausible, is the potential disintegration of Europe, stripping Poland of the benefits of its EU membership. Joining the Eurozone looks feasible in the medium term from an economic point of view, but can be extremely difficult given the internal politics within the country and the nation's obvious lack of enthusiasm for the euro. Staying outside, on the other hand, increases the risk of marginalisation. But, for the time being, the government does not seem to have any other option but to prepare ostentatiously for their accession, and to support the plans for Eurozone reforms, with the possibility of voluntary participation in some Eurozone policies.
