Economist / Gulliver

I have to say that I am quite amazed but the blunt honesty of the travel guidelines that the Economist puts on its Gulliver web page. The ones for Canada were referenced in an earlier post; today brought the ones for Belgium.

Here is the last one on their list: "Belgian officialdom is notoriously lazy and bureaucratic. Try to avoid it. The Belgians have a rather southern European attitude to regulations in any case: witness the country’s huge black economy."
