Quote of the week #2

“Investors no longer believe fairytales about Ukrainian agriculture.”

Alex Lissitsa, president of the Ukrainian Agribusiness Club.

Absolutely Alex. However there are still plenty of people who do, personally I blame the rise of the spreadsheet.

“If we get four tons of wheat on ten fousand ‘ectares and flog it at hundred quid well make 4 million!”

Tappity tap tap tap (that's the sound of a key board as spurious figures are tapped in to a spreadsheet).

“Hang on a minute, if we get eight tons on one hundred fousand ‘ectares and sell it at one ‘undred and sixty quid we’ll be filthy rich! Ferraris all round!”
