Sobering up

17 April 2008

OUR housing boom was like a party that just kept bringing in more of the neighbours. It was a great party with lots of fun and lots of solid benefits. And the tax incentives and subsidies which eventually overheated the market were an absolutely necessary stimulus to get the party going. It's not all bad news, though. There are lots of lasting benefits, not least of which is the creation of new capital resources nationally, and also in places where virtually no capital existed previously. But the party IS over, the hangover is here, and the clean-up has to be done. Free article

I'VE ONLY SEEN bits of Celebrity Bainisteoir but, sure, not having seen things has never stopped me talking about them before. The main reason I have mostly missed it is that it clashes with The Simpsons and Ciara never misses The Simpsons even if she has seen the same episode 20 times.
