The Economy: Two more completely independent observations…

10 Dec
Another little nugget from Poland…

Observation 1

In Ireland the bankruptcy laws do not allow you to discharge your outstanding debts for 12 years.  Therefore you lose your house and family and all income and you are forced to live on the streets in the cold and the rain begging for food for 12 years before you can earn a living wage again.

Observation 2

If you took a 12 guage rifle and created a bullet shaped hole in the head of the previous bank regulator, you would be promptly arrested and sentenced to jail for probably 15 years.  In prison, which by the way has a ceiling so less chance of getting wet from the rain, you get three meals a day, access to all of the tv, internet and higher education you can eat, along with personal bodyguards, or prison officers, as they are called there.  If you behave yourself and don’t try and steal extra butter from your cell mate, you would be released in approximately 12 years with a healthy diet, relaxed and refreshed with all of your future earnings available to spend on shiny things.
