Reader feedback: Reason to be jolly

Re: Slovakia highly rated, Volume 10, Number 48, December 13 - December 19

This comes as no surprise, but good news anyway. This can be read as international business affirmation of the direction the current government is taking the country in.

There seems to exist a small corps of people who, for mysterious reasons (to me), want to see Slovakia taken backwards, who want to see the country remain out on the fringes of international economic life, so this improvement in Slovakia's economic and investment rating cannot make them happy. But I sure like it.
