The economic and social policy of the Law and Justice party did not take into account the economic realities, assessed the former Prime Minister and President of the National Bank of Poland, currently MEP Marek Belka in “Fakty po Faktach”. When asked if, like the ruler, he has any advice for Poles in relation to, inter alia, high inflation, Belka admitted that he had little. “I am not joining this choir of good advisers,” he said.
Professor Marek Belka, former prime minister and former president of the National Bank of Poland, currently an MEP of the Left in “Fakty po Faktach” on TVN24, was asked if he had advice for Poles in connection with the economic crisis. In high time inflation and its diminishing savings, as well as in the face of more expensive loans, the president Andrzej Duda advised to “grit your teeth”Deputy Minister of Climate and Environment Edward Siarka to “collect brushwood“.
Belka: I am not joining the choir of good advisers
– I do not join this choir of good advisers, I do not have good news for the citizens of our country – Belka said.
According to him, inflation “is a punishment for sins, for excesses.” – I say it in quotation marks, half jokingly, but unfortunately it’s not a good joke – he pointed out. – We must have been doing too well in recent years. The economic and social policy of the Law and Justice party did not take into account the economic realities, he commented.
Belka continued that the aforementioned policy PIS “it hit the turbulence in the commodity markets and the war.” – As a result, we have high inflation, which is accelerating, and which even at this stage, and even much lower, is unsustainable – he said.
– I really don’t have any good advice for Poles. I think you have to try to invest money, if someone has, in anti-inflationary bonds, i.e. high-interest bonds – he said. – I can’t help it. However, I would have a lot of advice for those in power, he admitted.
