Listening to him on RTE.

Pure shill. Former advisor to Mary Harney.

"If I had the money I would buy Irish 10 year bonds @ 7 or 8 per cent."

So he doesn't have money then.

Just another FF/PD blowhard.

In the few weeks before the budget expect a European wide outbreak of puff pieces by 'independent' commentators to assure the weak minded that the government are acting in the Irish people's interest and that the protection of bondholders is just a happy coincidence.

As a nation we have been turned into a big sad joke.

I have to say his artical is very good. And also do not understand why saying our country can be saved makes you a FF supported. Our Country Can (and will) be saved and FF still did make a total mess of it. Both comments are true.

Just googled this bit; the so-and-so was part of the madness; he jumps ship September this year and then pops back a wet week later to spout sh1t.

"Forget about global imbalances. Forget about U.S. and euro-zone monetary policy. Forget about the latest Basel capital rules. Like most countries, Ireland is a price-taker on those decisions, as it is on global, U.S., euro-zone and U.K. economic growth. The only growth factors Ireland can really affect for itself are its government finances and the business environment in the country."

Forget everything that's inconvenient.

The only growth factors ....

So a €15bn reduction in government "influence" on the economy is a growth factor?
