      That’s a bit sneery by you, Clampers.

      Are only economists to be considered valid politicians from now on? Which economists – the ones which have been consistently proved wrong over the last few decades, or the very few with some reasonable track record of prediction?

      Obviously we have too many teachers (and publicans and lawyers) in the Dail relatively to everything else, but it is difficult to blame any individual TD because they originally did teacher training before deciding to pursue politics.

        Unfortunately it seems there’s a large crop of young candidates who wish to become politicians straight out of college (having studied politics) with no real world experience in between.

    of course he is .. he’s the poster boy for doing exactly what youre told. he’ll be up there tellin them how ireland recovered fantastically because we followed europes bidding to the letter. and wont be telling them how it broke a number of generations all to bail out the already extremely wealthy .. probably will leave that bit out soley because he’s too thick to know thats whats happened, and/or he has his head in the sand over it and only wants to hear that everythings goin great and its all thanks to him. he rattles me somethin fierce.

    Simple says Enda! Low taxes and government welfare for corporations in the form of subsidies and making private debts public debts. Creating a dysfunctional property market by restricting supply to drive up prices also makes it seem like there is a recovery. Oh and don’t forget to send 35,000 abroad every year to keep unemployment payments (and troubling stats) down. Services? Well we can just directly tax everyone who uses them so that richer people can have everything they need while the proles will have to just put up with it.
    The longer FG are in power the more and more they look just like FF at their absolute worst. We are all gonna pay for this in a few years. Maybe even sooner.

    Until someone at Davos admits that Keynesianism has failed, they’re just going to be talking about how to paper over the problems, continuing to fool us, while also continuing to enrich their already stinking rich elite masters. Scum. All of them.

    Li’l Inda is so fupping dim and arrogant he thinks he’s been invited to showcase how to ‘fix’ an economy – when what they’re really after is lessons on spinning the squeezing of as much money from the poor into the bank accounts of the rich as possible into a win-win story for everyone.

    They’re laughing at us, everybody come play with their pet poodle.

    I thought this was pretty a accurate description of Davos’ sociopath attendees.
    In contemporizing the words of Adam Smith, Samuel Huntington was credited in the online research cite, Acton Commentary, as creating the phrase DAVOS MAN: “A soulless man, technocratic, nationless and cultureless, severed from reality. The modern economics that undergirded Davos capitalism is equally soulless, a managerial capitalism that reduces economics to mathematics and separates it from human action and human creativity.”
