Does poland lack wealth b/c its just fresh out of communism? Is it because of a lack of natural resources? OR is it because of the work ethic of polish workers? Is it because of the social low standing of poland vs other more well liked places? Its quite humorous how my state produces 4x more goods and services than ur country! Not to mention poland has been around for much longer than cali.

Hmmm I fail to see how comparing the prosperity of 2 cultures of almost equal size fails to qualify as intelligent. Hmmm when i think about it though it really makes sense. Poland values the church and gender roles as well as conservative political opinions regarding civil rights. In cali we celebrate diversity as well as competetion and differing opinions. In poland they celebrate the church and magical saints of gobblty gookk who represent things that may never have been. These saints and this church promote this conservative unchanging and undiverse culture. ( comprised of mostly white catholics)

Any system that throws a person in jail for a fraction of a gram of marijuana is obviously inefficient.

This california vs poland vs X comparison can be applied to many countries around the world. I was going to explain the situation a little but i don't really have time at the moment, and you don't sound very knowledgeable about the world so it could be frustrating. I fear that it would be like trying to teach a retard quantum physics.

Just go to a library and start reading.

California is the biggest and richest state of the richest country in the world, so is richer than vast majority of countries in the world and I don't see anything humorous in that.

I just don't understand why you are shagging a Polish girl/wanting to marry her and stuff and expressing such negative attitude towards Poland.

One option might be that you have made her up. Poor sod.
Another one is that any attention is better than none. That is even worse.

As long as that growth translate into real gains to PPP. Right now, that doesn't seem to be the case. Of the 2004 ascension countries, Poland is right above last place in PPP. Poland is also carrying a fairly high public debt load. With the unemployment rate dropping (except for 2009, of course), are there really that many jobs being created? How does Poland calculate unemployment?

2009-10-01 How does Poland calculate unemployment?

I believe Poland do it through all the people who register for unemployment benefits.
The E.U. states and the Polish states are quite different.

Whereas (GUS) Poland say it is over 11% last year.
the official figure for the unemployment rate in Poland now exceeds 11 percent, according to the EU's Eurostat, the figure is only 8.1 percent.

In 2008, it was lower than in most EU countries (incl Germany, UK or France):
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Economy_of_the_European_Union

In 2009, it is expected to increase to 51,7%, but will remain more than 20 points below the EU average (73%) and far lower than in the US (90%)..

convex:

In fact, Polish rules for calculating unemployment are harsher than EU rules and lead to higher figures.. For example, the latest available Eurostat figures (dec 2009) show 8,9% unemployment for Poland versus 11,9% published by GUS!!

I was using the IMF data, which was a bit kinder to Poland

Eurostat has Poland dead last in PPS

Keeping comparisons with the 2004 accession countries is probably a better gauge.

Hm.. somehow I cann't find more credible source than wiki at the moment:
http://pl.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bezrobocie#Bezrobocie_w_rozumieniu_prawa

In short according to wiki, in Poland you are unemployed when you are registered as unemployed, doesn't matter for how long.

PS. main difference between Eurostat number and GUS number is, that Eurostat somehow assess those registered unemployed which in fact are employed in grey zone. GUS don't do that. Therefore, depending on Eurostat grey zone assessment method, their number can be closer to reality.

PS2. As far as I know in Poland it is rather favourable for unemployed to register, because of health care issues. So it is rather rare cases of unemployed unregistered people.

Do you know of any changes in the criteria over the last couple of years that may have effected unemployment numbers? Has land ownership always been part of the criteria? Or underemployment?
