>Paid for with EU aid, the $23 million development 200 kilometers (124 miles) north of Warsaw opened in November to attract startup companies. Yet with two smaller science parks already close to the northeastern Polish town, half of the space remains empty in a region with among the highest poverty rates in Europe and where more people are leaving than arriving.
Дороги им строит ес.
>Halfway through a 229 billion-euro ($317 billion) EU aid package, more than the entire Marshall Plan for postwar Europe in today’s dollars, the money kept the Polish economy growing when the rest of the continent went into recession. The new business parks, highways, soccer stadiums and airport terminals also mask how for many Poles the passage to prosperity is still to come, with 17 percent of families of four living on less than $400 a month.
317 млрд. Баксов на халяву, больше чем план Маршалла для всей Европы. При этом живут хуево.
>After two decades of uninterrupted growth, International Monetary Fund figures show gross domestic product per capita adjusted for the cost of living caught up more quickly with the EU average than in Hungary or the Czech Republic, also among the 10 nations absorbed by the eastward expansion.
Лучше Венгрии, но хуже Чехии. При этом ни тем ни другим таких денег не выделяли.
>Yet, in Poland it remains at about 62 percent of the average, surpassing Hungary, though still below the Czechs. Five of the EU’s 20 poorest regions are in Poland.
Как же так?
>Unemployment is 13.5 percent. While that’s half the rate of crisis-hit Greece, it’s higher than Ireland, whose economy shrank for four of the last six years and remains a destination for many young Poles. Among those working, more than 1 million earn less than 5 zloty ($1.66) an hour.
А как же высокие средние зарплаты?
>Poland ranks 45th in the World Bank’s latest Doing Business report covering 189 countries, placing it in the top 25 percent. When it comes to starting a business, it slips down to 116th, beneath Ivory Coast and Yemen.
Свой бизнес захотел? Конкурировать с европейцами? Хуёв проглоти.
>A Polish government report this week showed domestic companies have completed 62,600 projects to the tune of 85.5 billion zloty in EU financing.
Поляки хоть что-нибудь умеют делать самостоятельно, на свои деньги?
>“The EU is vigilantly monitoring spending and evaluating its purpose and use,” Janusz Lewandowski, a Pole who is responsible for the EU’s budget at the European Commission, said in February. Municipalities in Poland “should learn from the example of other countries” that wasted EU aid, he said during a trip to Warsaw.
Хозяева держат траты под строгим контролем.
