RE: Fico rejected by European socialists, Volume 12, Number 26, July 3-July 9

If potential foreign investors perceive Slovakia to be a good place to set up shop, they will do so. But Mr Fico looks from the outside like some kind of bouncer, continuously in opposition to the former government, but hardly ever proposing any meaningful alternative.

Fico didn't even try to exhaust his alternative to the current coalition. But all that is minor compared to the announcement that the backbone of his policy will be to toss around the far fewer than 52 cards Slovakia has, rather than to build the full pack needed for Slovakia to become a full and equal player. It's like the stock market: if investors perceive a company will not perform well in future, the shares of that company fall.
