for one, america is a country with a looooong history of capitalism and democracy, successful business, ingenuity, invention, manufacturing, entertainment.....it goes on and on. Poland cannot claim the same. that, if anything, means a country full of people with entirely different ways of thinking.
Problem is that what works in US not always works in Poland. Poles are very skeptical, don't trust other people. People in poland are stingy and they rather buy cheap bad quality stuff and spare some little money than buy something of good quality. That's why its really hard to make a business in Poland. Everyone wants to have everything cheap or for free. They don't get the idea that if they let others to earn some money they will also gain as the country will grow economically. Now Poles let only to make money some big comapnies which can afford to produce/sell things very cheap. Why there is no ordinary grocery shops left? We have only: Biedronka, Tesco, Real etc. Where are all those little business which make countries rich and balanced?
Also the way the employers treat their emplploees is wrong and make sick situation when the employees don't give a sh of good work ethics looking just when to give up job and start own business useing old connections (stealing clinets of former employer).
secondly, poland is just polish. america is a huge melting pot so the country's "mentality" is made up of people from all over the world. in poland, often times one pole doesn't vary from the next.
I have no idea what you mean here. Maybe you did not soak enough in any group to know the people better. People are reserved when socializing with foreigners. You have to be really open and friendly to break the stiff athmosphere and remoteness.
4th, the socialistic attitude. you're more likely to find people that support such a system here than in the USA.
just like in whole Europe.
Obama wants to socialize medicine a bit and the next thing you know, FOX news is screaming "he's a communist!"
Yep it's quite funny. Do you know a Polish saying: wylewać dziecko z kąpielą?
