« Ireland's Funding Options: Time to End the 'Race-to-Disaster' Debate | Main | Welcome to the Inequality Cycle »

March 23, 2012



Most headlines in the Times relating to this story tended to concentrate on the 'good news' story in relation to GDP - 0.7% for an 'open economy' (cf 'de facto tax haven') is to be expected. Dan O'Brien et al preferred to bury the fact that we're in a technical recession.

If the Government keeps gutting public services, levying more indirect taxes and destroying demands, that recession is going to feel more than a little bit 'technical'.

Where's our export-led miracle then?
