Costs of public services rise in Poland - report
June 5, 2014
Poland's government has so far failed to implement the idea of "cheap state," as budget spending for current needs of administration, police or military amounted to some PLN 58.4 billion in 2013 and was some 2.1% higher year on year, Rzeczpospolita daily writes.
Savings carried out by the state are not necessarily done in the right way, economic roundtable FOR's Aleksander Laszek said. Freezing wages of public administration officers or refraining from buying new cars does not have an effect on employees' efficiency, and may bring a wave of spending hikes in the future, Laszek says.
