President: Inflation is also the result of our actions. We gave away money
President Andrzej Duda on Friday during his visit to Pajęczno, admitted that the actions of politicians contributed to the increase in inflation in Poland. He stated that inflation is “also a result of our actions, which we took here in Poland”.
– I say we made decisions because they were decided by the prime minister, government and parliament. Even during a pandemic coronaviruswhen we were simply handing out money to entrepreneurs so that they could keep their businesses and jobs. So that people do not lose their jobs, the president said.
– The money was paid out, which of course must have caused inflation. We knew this was probably going to happen, but we preferred to cause inflation rather than having jobs go away rather than people not having jobs, he added.
In addition, the president said that he believed that “inflation will soon be suppressed, thanks to a wise policy, and interest rates will be able to be lowered.” – There are very serious hopes for this. I hope they will be able to do so this year interest rate cuts – he assessed.
