"Why do you always misinterpret everything as being a dig at BG. No one said BG caused it. Who's saying that???"

Because most of you seem to start every sentence here with "Corrupt BG ... anything".

Say "Corrupt politicians" instead of bringing up BG in your rants, because guess what - corruption galore where you come from and where I live as well - in fact this is what those "corrupt BG politicians" are talking about dealing with - the results of the corruption of US, UK and EU politicians!

So politicians are corrupt - stop shitting on my country!

Why do you always misinterpret everything as being a dig at BG. No one said BG caused it. Who's saying that???

You said it yourself: "There is a world wide crises". So why then are BG politicians telling their citizens that everything will be fine when countries are defaulting all around them?

Are you saying that the Bulgarian parvenues and mutri are living way above their means? Why am I not surprised?

Who to believe?
Robin, point to one country that looks good right now!

There is a world wide crises, and we're all screaming Bulgaria, as usual.
We didn't cause it.

Are you serious? It is a no-brainer who is more credible. The Economist, of course. Bulgarian politicians are fool, they know nothing. Every time they deny something, bank on it being true. They lie. The Economist has very good and balanced reporting and there is no percentage for them to lie.

Good article!
It is always easy to point fingers at the journalists, but most are just reporting what has happened so far and what the "experts" say will happen in the future.

Many have pointed out that Bulgarinas tend to not use banks and that may be a very good thing for the future! The older folks have no mortgages and little debt.
I think the west is in bigger trouble because of the amount of debt people have.

Just my 2 stotinki's worth
