Buzesku - the capital of the Roma-millionaires
• Buzesku - the capital of millionaires Roma
In Romania, a Bucharest is one of the richest cities in the world - a gypsy Buzesku. In it there are about 800 houses, each worth from 2 to 30 million. Dollars. This Beverly Hills №2 - the capital of the Roma-millionaires.
"King" Romanian Gypsies Florian Chioaba (he got the title inherited from his father) has to EUR 50-80 million. Per year. To his clan Koldashov owns about 300 families, and at least half of them have a house worth of 3 million. Euro.
The total income of the "King" and his clan is close to EUR 300-400 million. Per year. He made up of the offerings of ordinary Roma obshchak (deductions - up to 5-10% of the criminal and semi-criminal income), cigarette smuggling from Romania to Western Europe, the hospitality industry and trade.
A similar picture is observed in the Roma "elite" and other countries in Eastern and Central Europe. Even in a poor gypsy Moldova "baron" Cherar Arthur and his clan, has up to € 20-40 million. Per year. And in Kosovo clan "Baron" Nedzhmedina Neziri -. To € 100 million per year (mostly Kosovo Roma ply in Germany and Austria).
Like most of the rest of the "elite" of Eastern Europe and the former Soviet Union, these Gypsies deliberately show a luxurious lifestyle, literally bathed in gold (in the interior decoration of homes Gypsy "king" of Romania Florian Chioaba gone up to 55 kilograms of gold). Of their windfall "cattle" only the crumbs fall to, and even then - mainly some dirty business. Do not cause the disturbance sverhroskosh "elite" and subordinate them to the people: the majority of the lower classes secretly dreams that once too can become the owner of a gold toilet and "first night rights".
The Roma-millionaires Eastern Europe - is a perfect example for libertarians. All have their own, without help from the state. Taxes are not paid, but also by the authorities do not require. Live in complete freedom - the prejudices of the marriage laws, weapons, etc. "Gypsy Shrugged" -.. Probably Ayn Rand would call today so the book-guide of the libertarian ideal life.
The October issue of National Geographic tells of Roma-millionaires living in the capital of the world - the Romanian city Buzesku. This locality is situated 80 km south-west of Bucharest, with a population - 5 thousand people.. In Buzesku built about 800 homes, each worth from 2 to 30 million. Dollars. In general, the cost of all this real estate Roma-millionaires is estimated at 4 billion. Dollars.
As with their counterparts from the Russian Ruble, Roma from Buzesku pay no taxes to the state, regardless of formally unemployed or owners of companies with a zero balance. There is, however, one exception - their houses are considered unfinished and therefore subject to a small tax on property, usually 200-300 euros per year.
One of these Roma-millionaires Paracha name tells how he became a rich man. After the establishment of capitalism in Romania in 1989, the main fishing enterprising Roma became the purchase of ferrous and non-ferrous metals (it is interesting that the same nailing primary capital was observed in Russia). "We had to be a fool, so that after the Revolution of 1989 did not build yourself a 5 villas!" - said one of the millionaires named Nikolay Marin.
But then make a fortune do Gypsies and other businesses, such as the smuggling of cigarettes in the rich EU countries.
As in Russia, first of all nouveaux riches began shown overconsumption. Expensive cars, palaces, gold. But there is one difference between the Roma-millionaires of the Russian rich - today they extort money not from their country, and of the rich European countries. Gypsy-Romanian nouveaux riches knock together money in France, Italy and Spain. These capitals are investing in their homeland - in Romania. While Russian nouveaux riches, on the contrary, prefer to extort money from Russia and put them in the palaces in London and the Cote d'Azur.
The Roma of Romanian millionaires Buzesko work in shifts: 3-4 months in Western Europe, then a couple of weeks back home (or forced return to weddings, funerals, baptisms friends and relatives). And because the majority of palaces in this town filled with children, the elderly and women.
More interesting one. Most wealthy families remain loyal to traditional crafts. Many of them are grown pigs, poultry and horses in the backyard palaces, women sew quilts, old people engaged in stamping and ludyat copper utensils.
