Finance minister Rostowski wins prizes

Polish Finance Minister Jacek Rostowski was named Finance Minister of the Year 2009 for Europe by The Banker magazine, part of the Financial Times group.

Rostowski was appreciated for his quick and accurate response to the economic crisis, The Banker wrote justifying its choice.

This just goes to show that total inaction is the best policy. Rostowski was faced with 2 choices:
(i) Do nothing - thereby avoiding mistakes
(ii) Do something - and make matters worse through Obama-Brown style gross incompetence.
