The 21st century has caught Prague City Council really unprepared. A city that, for the past 10 years, had mainly been struggling with a plastic card and a tunnel seems really uneasy all the new technologies arriving at the gates. We cannot say that the arrival of services such as Uber and AirBNB were handled poorly, as they literally weren’t handled at all. And while regular taxi drivers in Brno and Prague are taking this issue into their own hands, the city is now focusing on the accommodation services platform AirBNB. It all started a few weeks ago when the mayor, Adriana Krnáčová, expressed concerns that AirBNB would make it easy for terrorists to find accommodation in Prague. Anyone who has been through the AirBNB verification process will find it odd that terrorists would voluntarily shove their ID cards in front of a camera to be able to get a flat in Prague, but let’s leave that argument to one side for a moment. All this merely shows that Czech politicians are unable to introduce rational, up-to-date regulation. So while other major European cities have already reached an agreement with AirBNB, in Prague there are still complaints rising rents and the mayor of the Prague 1 district fears that his neighbourhood will turn into a giant hotel with no permanent residents. But no hint of a reasonable solution was forthcoming.

While agricultural prices continued their strong growth, prices in industry dropped sharply. The slump was to a gross extent due to global commodity prices, led by oil. In agriculture, a variety of items from fresh fruits to livestock showed strong price dynamics. Service prices unexpectedly eased while construction prices recorded only minor growth.
