Polish Economy,

You have two cows.

One is shipped to UK where it can produce four times more milk. The milk is transported back to Poland.

However, most of the time you argue with EU - to receive higher subsidies for milk production - including subsidies for the cow that is "temporarily" in UK as well, of course :rolleyes: ...
