And in other news…..the IMF also discovers we need air to breathe

Earlier this week Ashoka Mody, one of the original troika representatives when they took hold of the Irish economy last year, has admitted that austerity alone was a mistake.

Then the Taoiseach comes up with “well, hindsight is a wonderful thing.”. Yes, Enda, it is, but there was no need for hindsight when many economists, including Nobel prize winner Paul Krugman, economics popularist David McWilliams and your’s truly told you so back then. It’s information that can be found in standard textbooks for third-level economics studies.

But I suppose you need to be a VSP (Very Serious Person) to be taken seriously.
