Opinion

The FINANCIAL -- In just a couple of weeks Baku is going to host the second Formula One Grand Prix in its history. Being in love with motor races and inspired by the fact that for the first time in my life I will attend such an important race (and the Land of Fire); I tried to explore the economic impact of hosting expensive international events for one’s country.  

The FINANCIAL -- According to the AGRIndex, in May 2017, VEGETABLES (-8.11%) and DAIRY (-12.81%) product prices continued declining m/m trend, while MEAT (-0.37%) and FRUITS (-9.58%) became cheaper for the first time in the year. As a result, m/m AGRIndex equaled to -4.06% in the last month. 

The FINANCIAL -- “Spice a dish with love and it pleases every palate”, said Titus Maccius Plautus around 22 centuries ago. But the fact is, you still need the spices to augment the taste of any dish. Various herbs and spices are associated with different ethnic foods but you also have other spices like salt, garlic and basil that are universal and can be used in just about every dish across cultures.

We all know that ethnic communities are generally different both socially and economically compared with a nation’s majority. The case is no different in Georgia.
