Poland's national debt dangerously high

Poland's national debt will be unexpectedly high this year at eight percent of the gross domestic product, the online edition of the news magazine Newsweek Polska reports. Ultimately the taxpayers will have to pick up the tab, the magazine comments in disapproval: "Those in power manipulate the data and withhold information. They consistently ignore the warnings of economists and ridicule [former finance minister Leszek] Balcerowicz and his debt barometer [set up in the centre of Warsaw showing Poland's national debt]. And we - who don't like it when someone starts playing with matches in a warehouse full of fireworks - can't do a thing about it. Not a single party is plausibly saying that such debt is unacceptable for the citizens, or presenting plans to limit it."

Shipyard investor pulls out

It appears that the Polish shipyards in Szczecin and Gdynia have still not found an investor. As Piotr Aleksandrowicz writes in the online edition of the news magazine Newsweek Polska, the anonymous investor from Qatar who was to refinance the shipyards has not honoured the deadline for payment of investment funds. "One more episode in the series entitled 'shipyard sale' is coming to an end. The buyers have not coughed up the sum, and it is not very likely that they will do so before midnight [on Monday]. Treasury Minister Aleksander Grad will certainly offer his resignation to the prime minister, who - I am quite certain - will accept. ... The shipyards will no doubt come under the hammer for a second time - perhaps in a normal insolvency proceeding."
