I didn't say were the only corrupt state. Quote me on that? But Croatian government is one of the most corrupt in Europe, even average Croatians with some rudementary knowledge of politics knows this. You listed big businesses and I agree , in fact , in terms of big business Croatia isn't one of the most corrupt but in terms of government… absolutely! I own property in Croatia and my family owns a business. Do you know how hard it is for people to acquire property in Croatia ( you should you live there). I'm talking about a fresh young person out of university TRYING to get some kind of work but usually ends up unemployed or partially employed. Even if he is employed if HIS FAMILY didn't already own property then its SO HARD for that person to get a fair loan ( or a  loan at all) or be eligable to purchase property of any value. And starting a business in Croatia? Forget about it. I'm not talking about a little rent your room on the coast over the summer deal , I'm talking a real legitimate grassroots business like an autobody shop ( which my family owns). Takes MONTHS to get a permit to even start working. Then all the red tape going through dozens of bureaucrats for just how many people you can hire and then the tax system… Jesus , trust me , its bad and I even know this living abroad most of the year. Which also gives me and advantage because I can compare Croatia to other western countries. That's not saying Croatia doesn't have anything good going for it , it does. But the economy is always in flux and the danger grows as the body of politicians increases.

You just counted in whole a problematic of the entire southern sphere of European Union.

Also id like to point out that atm Croatian population is suffering from highest ratio of pensioners/working force meaning one worker supports pensions of 1.2+ pensioners which is a massive burden for our economic system and workforce.

Two main reasons for our situation atm are:

1) We've been trough war and during privatization most of European countries took the advantage of it to buy things in a corrupted matter (hypo, reiffeisen, ina/mol and hundred other smaller examples)
2) We are having the extreme ratio of pensioners per workforce atm. That's because post ww2 there was a baby boom in Jugoslavia, including our country, and now we're suffering the consequences of this baby boom as we're atm having a pensioner boom.
3) All neigbour nations, BiH, Serbia, Slovenia, Hungary are atm in financial problems if not worse.

P.s. – American system of giving loans too easily was the things that started the recession btw.
