Are Polish Entrepreneurs Swindlers?

Well imagine my reaction to reading this headline published by News From Poland (pictured):

Poles distrust entrepreneurs
According to a survey by PBS DGA (English here), almost eighty percent of Poles (1,000 people surveyed) believe that Polish entrepreneurs are thieves, cheaters and swindlers.

How could this be?

Half of the respondents claim that businessmen manage to achieve success and grow rich through backdoor activity and contacts with politicians. Every fifth Pole thinks that financial success can be achieved only by violating the law, i.e. fixing tenders, giving bribes or stealing confidential information from rival companies.
