Prague - Almost all Czech parties that are likely to enter the Chamber of Deputies after the end-October general election have already released their manifestos and it seems that the country has not yet had such pleasing programmes lacking any specific content, Petr Kambersky writes in Hospodarske noviny (HN) today.
The Social Democrats (CSSD) have long been champions in making unfeasible promises, but their manifesto is clearly the most specific one this time, Kambersky writes.
The most horrific are the manifestos of new parties, such as ANO of Andrej Babis, Dawn of Direct Democracy of Tomio Okamura or the Party of Citizens´ Rights - the Zemanites (SPOZ), Kambersky writes.
He writes that they are nothing but slogans, slogans and again slogans.
True, these parties are reacting to the voters´ strong demand. But people could hardly sigh with relief "The situation will be better," if these parties enter parliament, Kambersky writes.
The former strongest party on the right, Civic Democrats (ODS), have quite logically launched their election campaign with emphasis on young people because youth is the beginning of everything and also because young people have traditionally voted for the right, Daniel Kaiser writes in Lidove noviny (LN).
Without the young, the party could give up the struggle for the Chamber of Deputies right now, Kaiser writes.
Petr Kambersky writes in Hospodarske noviny (HN) that it is quite "amusing" that the Russian bank Sberbank has won the competition for the most client-friendly bank, Best Bank of 2013, in the Czech Republic, a country that was hurrying to enter European structures.
Yet, the competition compels a more serious consideration. The opinion has prevailed for many years that in banking, the same as on the mobile communication market, a silent cartel exists. It is a cartel thought to be based on the idea: all of us are keeping prices as well as fees high, the client has nowhere to go, Kambersky writes.
Today, competition on the banking market is high and there are no big outflows of clients of the three mainstream banks, Kambersky writes.
Was the cartel theory a mistake? Or are the domestic clients too lazy to look after their money? Kambersky asks.
The car market is saturated, which does not mean that cars are not being sold because even the saturated market lives on the renovation of the car fleet, Zbynek Petracek writes in Lidove noviny (LN).
However, the renovation is slowing down, which means that the average age of cars in use, taht is already now higher than in advance countries, increases, Petracek writes.
Paradoxically, it is true that mainly those who criticise the chase for the sale of new products and the cult of growth will grumble at the high share of wasteful and environment polluting cars, Petracek writes.
