Georgians expressing their dislike of Kobalia. 21003.jpegA curious research was carried out by IPL Sociologic and Marketing Research Center and Association of Young Financiers and Businessmen of Georgia.

trying to introduce a number of unpopular reforms aimed at filling the political elite's wallets, Georgians are thinking of how to keep body and soul together instead of comparing financial system models.

Sakartvelo government continues reporting a steady economic growth, comparing the country to Singapore, purporting that Georgia must take on the neighbours' "capital surplus", for it is the only country unaffected by corruption virus. However, Europe has taken the enterprising Mikhail Saakashvili's new vector skeptically. His nearest partners from the Baltic States subjected his focus on "singaporization" to ostracism, for such steps distance the Caucasian republic from affiliating with Europe. This being the case, it was decided to question common Georgians on the matter.

Ultimately, several interesting things were found out. A jump in economy looks suspicious even to World Bank, which makes regular reports on the countries, so the respondents' answers quite fit the general doubts about Georgia's suitable investment climate. Within ten years after the USSR collapsed, the Caucasian republic's main problems have been: mass poverty, ineffective and corrupted state structure and the unsettled relationship in the property issues. Then the power was taken over by Mikhail Saakashvili and everything changed immediately: is not that strange?
