Final Word from Wednesday, January 2, 2019

Czech politicians are starting to pivot away from their mantra about how the country has never had it better. They still talk about how the country is better off than people think, but as economic growth starts to slow, the new narrative is that if people would just talk and listen to each other, we could fix all our problems. Excuse our French, but this is a load of horse manure. The division in society is a result of the behavior of the political and economic elite over the past several decades, supported by the mainstream media. Being polite to each other isn't going to do anything to solve the problem of debt, theft, war and underinvestment that has systematically eroded the foundations of Western society. Until the super rich and the politicians they manipulate decide that the Western world, Europe and individual countries, including the CR, are more important than their own bottom line, nothing will change for the better. It's in the hands of the elite, not the people. [ Czech Republic GDP new year ]
