President Yushchenko: The Chinese hieroglyph for crisis is illustrated in two parts: The first part talks about ruin and the second part talks about opportunity. We should — I have no doubt about it — come out of the crisis stronger. We can live without expensive foreign-made cars, TV sets, and a whole variety of home appliances, but we need to save the national economy.
So whose belts should we tighten, Mr. President?
If your hieroglyph for we refers to your Brioni-clad brethren and the 5 percent of Ukrainians swimming in luxury, then I can only say “Amen to that!” It’s the Ukrainian Dream come true!
It’s they — not we, the remaining 95 percent trying to make both ends meet — who should cut back on $200K+ cars and $2M+ villas. (Learn more here, here and here.)
Since most of the proud owners of this hard-earned stuff make about $30K a year according to their tax returns, shouldn’t they live by their books?
Now, if you want to make good on your 2004 “the rich will help the poor” promise, here’s a personalized can-do list:
- Repossess the Mezhyhirya state residence, your gift to Mr. Yanukovych;
- Sell your iPhone and donate the proceeds to a cancer center for kids;
- Send your kids to a public school.
Can you do that?
