"The gap between poor and rich increases", we read in the Adevărul.
The report of the Organisation for Cooperation and Economic Development reveals that disparity reached its highest level in the last thirty years and recommends a thorough revision of taxation systems.
Romania is one of the most polarised countries, yet the Romanian Government refuses to apply gradated tollage.
Even more so, from next year on, discrepancies will be on the rise due to the fact that the Executive Committee wants to increase with only 30 RON the minimum wage set at the economy level, the Adevărul pinpoints.
"BNR is on negotiation terms with Austrian partners to find out how they intend to restrict grant of credit throughout the region", the Ziarul Financiar reports.
Following the jarring announcement from two weeks ago, according to which affiliate Austrian banks from some countries will be imposed certain constraints, the Central Bank in Vienna remained silent on other elaborations and also refused to seek preliminary advice with central banks concerned regarding the new regulations. It will pursue this initiative only now.
"The war of UDMR against ANI could prove an expensive battle for Romania" reports the România Liberă. Deputy Andras Mate proposed retrenchment to 5 percent of the institution budget, to which he attributed the blame for a conflict of interests, whereas his party colleagues stand by him in their attempt to put the agency which verifies the income of dignitaries on the right track.
One of the risks is a negative report concerning the legal system, proposed by the European Commission, a report which leads to a new procrastination to us being included within Schengen.
In the Jurnalul Naţional we read that "Andrei Andronie, the spoilt brat with BMW X5, has been set free", after having driven drunken and at great speed, thus killing two innocent people on the Calea Floreasca in November.
The family of the murdered girl is in deep dungeon by the decision. The young man who instigated the tragedy will spend his holidays at home because he regrets his deed from the bottom of his soul.
As a side feature, the discussion is centred around the son of a money agent, who studies abroad on paid tuition and who had borrowed the luxury car of his father.
In the Evenimentul Zilei we read that: "The way to lose 20 kilos until Christmas is the greatest sham of the season".
"A lethal stake", due to the fact that every month people intoxicated with slimming pills bought on the internet are brought to the emergency parlour.
Doctors warn us that the pills combined with starvation may cause death. Medicines bought on the Internet are either counterfeit, unauthorised, expired or produced in stale conditions.
Related to medicines, the Ring writes that, according to professor Mencinicopschi, "E-type conservatives contained in some medicines may trigger the emergence of cancer".
The pills that we swallow when we feel nauseated transform into poison due to some additives.
The same thing remains valid for vitamins and nutritional supplements which we intake in order to become stronger in the face of ailments.
