To get out of crisis

you'd better marry a Prince.

At least that's the new recovery plan for Belarus. A Belarussian scientist, Ruslan Novitsky, has recommended that businessmen invest in frog breeding in order to speed economic recovery. Apparently frogs, are a little mentioned Belarussian natural resource.

Perhaps it is small minded to question whether frog breeding would truly bring in the bags of money Novitsky claims the Belarussian government could expect from this program. Not surprisingly, many Belarussian businessmen seem to share my skepticism that kissing this frog would save them from financial difficulties.

What are they going to do with all the frogs? Sell them to France for the legs?

The talk in the article seemed mostly to target the gourmet food markets, but also discussed the possibility of selling to research labs.

Oh that's priceless. They should try and market the frogs to the high schools.

Millions of teenagers could learn about organs with Belarusian frogs.

The chap is completely right, and there's no skepticism.
