  3. This is just an example on a normal way salaries would grow with 15% per year as average but with this things we can overtake CROATIA in 2020. But Adrian I just gave my self a 21% increase and a big bonus on top. it's a new year prices are increasing as usual. Then I said who deserves a big increase then me of coarse just to boost the Croatian average income up. Just don't tell the sticky finger kleptomaniac government now every thing is fine with the world for a another year.

    This is just an example on a normal way salaries would grow with 15% per year as average but with this things we can overtake CROATIA in 2020

    I am sitting at home and looking at the code.

    Today I realized, the roaming cost of Romanian SIM cards in Kosovo is 213% more, than the cost of AT&T roaming in Alberta, Canada.

    This revelation hit me like a one bottle of rakija.
    BTW: I did not know that Romanian Tsuica can be 1.5634% more strong than Stoli either.

    On the positive note:

    I like Cotnari 34% better than the vine from Abkhasia.
    I am regular at an Albanian hotel near Decani. Usually I smuggle Russian booze for them in exchange of Kosovo.

    I like the wine from Kosovo 15.37812% more than the wine from Abkhasia but it is still far from Nous Racines. I like the French one exactly 3.14% more, than the Albanian stuff.

    Hope we are done with statistics.

  8. 2019 is a year of very big changes , in november 2018 average salary was 602 euro and gross 1000 euro the big change is that in 2019 many sectors pay less more big less taxes from gross salary . In Serbia gross salary is 580 euro and net 420 euro . + in 2019 salaries grow more than 2018 but most big grow will be from LESS TAXES . If one look will see in 2018 gross salary was over 50% more big than net and in Serbia gross only 30% more big [link]

    In 2019 average net salary will be over 700 euro for many sectors of economy less taxes with 50% and minimum salary 600 euro

    EVEN without this changes if you look at last 2 years evolusion in 2016 average salary was 1900 lei and now is 2800 lei

    Without taxes average salary from Romania is almost double than the one from Serbia

    HOW WEAK IS SERBIA AND WITHOUT A CHANCE TO HAVE GROSS SALARY UNDER NET SALARY FROM ROMANIA IN CONDITION IN ROMANIA NET SALARY IS OVER 50% LESS THAN GROSS ONE

    Serbia even not have from where to cut taxes

    Can`t wait for statistic for january 2019

    Vucic give 5% at pensions 2019 Dragnea give 15% 2019 and 50% in 2020 + all public sector 25% in 2019 january

  9. Thankfully the snow is slowing down. I made the mistake of leaving my village yesterday morning. Since the trucks didn't put down any salt, Wednesdays snow was packed like ice and a few extra inches added to the mess. I couldn't get back into the village yesterday but will try again later today or tomorrow.
