Reader feedback: Secrets, land prices trouble investment

Re: Secrets, land prices trouble investment, By Beata Balogová, July 12-18, Vol 10, No 27

I, for one, wonder why Smer is constantly trying to deter foreign investors from coming to Slovakia or is in other ways trying to prevent Slovakia from progressing economically. If [Robert] Fico is going to create the next government. I wonder why he is trying to make his own possible future job more difficult. Or is it just a repetition of the old communist strategy, seen in the Russian revolution of 1917 and later in Czechoslovakia in 1948, which is to create as much disturbance and chaos as possible, not caring if the population will suffer from it.
