Italian factory owner moves company to Poland while staff are on holiday

“Fabrizio Pedroni, 49, said he was driven to the drastic course of action because his factory, located near the city of Modena, had not turned a profit for five years and he was being strangled by high salaries, crippling taxes and dismal rates of productivity.

Moving the factory to Eastern Europe was the only way of saving his company, which was founded 50 years ago by his grandfather.”

I bet there are a lot of entrepreneurs like this. I bet a lot of them would consider Ukraine if there were stronger property rights here. (Which would happen if there was a culture of gun ownership.)
