"The agency has states it had biggest achievements in the spheres of energy, insurance and bank system, customs, taxes, investment and infrastructure projects, products and technologies with possible dual use, money laundering, judicial system, illegal manufacturing and distribution of weapons and international terrorism."

Wow, that's most of the BG economy. Are they fighting crime in these areas, or just doing "business" there? It is not quite clear from this statement...

It seems unsustainable to have three opera companies for 7.5 million people. The first poster's suggestion is sensible, if at all Bulgaria can afford even two companies?

"An average 60% of water pumped in the pipes never reaches Sofia consumers, while in some regions losses account for up to 90 %."

Hey, this is quite efficient by Bulgarian standards!

"According to the appealers, the winner did not meet the requirement of the municipality for having experience in construction of waste treatment plants. However, CPC have decided there were no gaps in the documents of the consortium."

Ah yes, the "gaps" were filled with "kesh" no doubt.....after all who cares about experience in BG? Money talks!

Are you talking to me, Sea Slug?

What happened to the Sea Slug school of economics? I thought you were going to "explain" BG's trade with Greece for us all?

But of course, all a Sea Slug living in a hollowed out skull can do is make echoes. When that doesn't happen, and someone forces Sea Slug to use its tiny brain, just rage is about all he can manage. Poor little Sea Slug!

"Nazi troll,

"You can find many Bulgarians selling arms in secondary markets for drug traffikers."

I seem to recall some Bulgarian guys arrested in Colombia a while ago for illicit arms dealing?

"I think I should know the difference, thanks. The "sportists", while moneyed gained hardly any power outside of the power of intimidation."

Some of them gained a lot of power. For example, the TIM crew are very powerful businessmen controlling some key aspects of the Bulgarian economy. And what about Bate Boyko, the new Prime Minister, karate chopping bodyguard cop with dubious history during the transition...

"The Commies are the ones who control everything, even "mutrite". The "old guard" education sounds impressive in quantity but is laughable in quality. Their spawn, the ones who went to Ivy League schools with stolen money are definitely better educated and I have no clue about what they like and dislike."

It is impossible to avoid their kids in certain circles in Sofia. Many have taken on the attributes, and attitudes of the Western elites they were educated with. But the friends of their parents still know they are "one of us".

"It's dissident offspring like me who are completely embittered about the trash heap of Bulgarian culture."

This is entirely understandable. The situation is in no way fair or just, but it is the reality.

"Huh? I beg your pardon? Now even the Mystery of Bulgarian Voices is a communist thing."

Are you trying to be deliberately naive or something? What planet were you on these past years?

"LOL Modern version? What's new in Mystery of Bulgarian Voices that is not present in "traditional" Bg folkmusic?"

Oh, maybe the huge organised choirs, the orchestration, the special compositions subsidised by the State, the national competitions, the world tours.....that kind of thing.

"Also, I am neither a communist nor the offspring of one. In fact, Commie spawn are the fat, track-suit clad faces you see tossing a gyubek in chalga clubs. So there you go."

It's important to distinguish between former "sportists" who became gangsters and gained power during the transition, and the former Communist nomenklatura, some of whom have significant, if mysteriously obtained, wealth and are often well educated. Of course some of them lost out and are just useless relics with little money and no influence.

Many of these former "elite" are the "cultured and educated" Bulgarians who despise chalga...
