The iceberg effect

There’s been a good deal of comment lately that the Euro/European crisis is good for Ireland.

This is principally based on the view that the crisis will result in a reduction of Ireland’s interest rate.

This view, I think, is a bit like a steerage passenger on Titanic expressing delight on being upgraded to first class minutes after the iceberg changed everything.

There’s a definite benefit but it won’t last too long.

  1. Well said.

    A rate reduction will prove meaningless.

    A debt write off is required. As is a faster balancing of the budget, whether increasing revenue or cutting spending.
