Reader feedback: Invest into roads

Re: Tourists need roads too, Reader Feedback, Sept. 2-7, Vol 9, No 33

It's a sad fact that Slovakia continues to live beyond its means. Even a Sk50 billion (€1.2 billion) deficit is not enough to maintain the health system or to fund the schools, let alone improve the road system. Despite the experience of the Mečiar mid-90s (or even the late 40s), continued investment is needed, and yet, in the end, the country must earn money, not just borrow it. Better roads can help. If the private sector feels that it won't be cheated by a government, then it just might enter into partnerships which will create those better roads. It has happened elsewhere.
