worth greater than the combined GDP of the 41 poorest nations and their 550
million people. "

If just citing a Web site counts, here's proof that I'm right:

Good. Serves them right.



Why? What have they done wrong?


I found a quote in this thread, and I believe it conveys the answer
you are seeking:

"I hate to say it, but after much consideration, my opinion of muslims
is coming on par with yours. They truly are all ****ed in the head."

I don't see why it can't be both. I think it's safe to say that both
Europe and the US have a lot of blame to share.


Hey, hey! We had nothing to do with it here in Slovenia. We're *Eastern*
Europe, remember? :-P

We'll be in Ljubljana in August for a few days- looking forward to it!

You guys are RICH! Damn, if only your neighbours had learnt a thing or

Don't put Italy and Austria down now!

For economic growth, Slovenia's got it worked out. For now.


Just because Slovenia is very successful doesn't mean that the Balkans
are in the economic doldrums. The growth rates are healthy- admittedly
more for some than others.

Only because they're working their way up.


A good start.

Eastern Europe is in its
golden day, but I don't know if it will ever be as rich as the west.


Depends what part. I read recently that Estonia's growth could make it
one of the richer EU countries in a few years- given its tiny size, not
a huge change in the make-up of the EU, I admit.
