Bucharest Squandered Crazy Amounts of Money


Well, it’s only “crazy amounts” of money if you’re unfamiliar with the standard amount of graft and corruption that goes on every day in Romania, especially in the capital. From here:

Among the more jaw-dropping details are districts paying €1,000 ($1,083) apiece for park benches, and one area splashing out a total of €8,200 ($8,886) on 13 trashcans lovingly fashioned from exotic wood.

No mention of the fact that the mayor of Bucharest during this era of over-spending, Sorin Oprescu, is currently in jail on corruption charges. But hey, how could a lazy and ignorant American journalist be expected to know that?
